|Ticket #||The ticket number is shown at the top when creating the ticket, but the ticket does not get sent to SOMTech until the Submit button is pressed.|
In this example, the ticket number is 15028.
|Requested By||This field is hidden. It automatically logs the person submitting the ticket|
This is the person who is having the problem, not necessarily the person submitting the ticket. This defaults to the person who is creating the ticket, but can be changed. Sometimes, this person will not be involved in resolving the problem, but it's important to identify the person actually having the problem.
To change this, clear out the text in the field and enter the person's last name or eID and click Tab or the magnifying glass to search for the person.
|Customer Type||This describes the affiliation of the person having the issue (i.e. the Requested For person). Oftentimes, the person will have multiple affiliations – select the one that is most relevant.|
|Business Unit Name||This lists the MBU (major business unit) for the person having the issue (i.e. the Requested For person). This cannot be changed. If this does not show School of Medicine, it is extra important to mention that this ticket is for SOMTech in the Description.|
|Alt Phone / Email||This is supposed to represent an alternate phone number and email address for the person submitting the ticket (i.e. the Requested By person). To simplify things, please leave this blank or list the primary contact information for the person submitting the ticket. This information will be saved for future tickets, so please do not list the contact information for the person having the issue (i.e. the Requested For person).|
This is the most important part of the ticket. Please be sure to include as much of the following information as you can:
