After Initial Contact

IT Helpdesk Staff will assist. The initial contact follows this procedure:

  • The IT Helpdesk staff will attempt to resolve the problem immediately.
  • IT staff may need to ask basic questions about the computer and its configuration (i.e., is it a Macintosh, Windows 7, etc.), the problem or error message, and about the specific events that preceded the problem.
  • IT staff will also ask for the model number of the printing device
  • The IT Helpdesk staff will attempt to resolve the incident

If the IT Helpdesk staff is successful in finding an answer to the question/problem, the transaction is completed and the ticket will be resolved. If the issue has not been addressed to the user's satisfaction, or if more information is required, the IT helpdesk staff member will reassign the ticket to the next ITS support level.

Second Level Support

Second level support includes:

  • Detailed troubleshooting support all staff and students
  • Assist with in-depth computing questions/problems
  • Developing instructional materials on use of the USP Enterprise service

If second level support is successful in finding an answer to the question/problem, the transaction is completed and the ticket is resolved. If the issue has not been addressed to the user's satisfaction, or if more information is required, the IT helpdesk staff member will reassign the ticket to the next ITS support level.

Third Level Support

Incidents which are not solved at the second level may require hardware replacements, special analysis and programming by the USP level three support staff or by vendors
