  • Hardware Problems (Computer, Printers, Projectors) Software Problems
  • Email Problems

Submitting a ticket

When users submit a request to the WHD, it is automatically converted into what is called a ticket. A ticket is the means by which Clients and Techs communicate. Submitting a ticket to WHD is a one step process. Users will send an email to one of the addressees listed below. The emails are split up based on which technician supports their buildings. Emails can only be submitted from Westside66.org email addresses.

What to include

When you send the request the subject line is used identify the type of problem and the body of your email will be copied into the problem description. Include the following in the body of your email:

  • Building
  • Location within the building
  • Identify the hardware which has the issue
  • For Elementary Student computers we need the Cart ID, Cart Location, and Computer ID

*** If you can’t remember where to send the email simply type help into the To: line on your email and choose the building/tech/subject that fits.

Once you have submitted a ticket you will receive a confirmation email similar to the one below saying that a ticket has been created.

Once you receive this email your assigned technicians will be notified of the issue. Hold onto this email as it can be used to update your ticket. You have two options once you submit the ticket. You can add a note to update the status or provide additional information and/or choose to cancel the ticket if the problem is resolved.
