    Hey all

    Just after a few pointers really.

    We currently have a helpdesk system set up, and obviously we record all our jobs on this and produce a report at the end of the month to show what we have done etc.

    We currently do the tickets ourselves which can take time, so I am looking to simplify the procedure to make getting to the topic were after, easier. What I mean by that is when I have a simple password reset, I can do that via a default template. I think I am looking for a way to accurately record the details, but getting to the right section quickly

    I think we should start off with what I think to be the first 2 categories that we should always start with, which is hardware and software and then work from there, and also Im thinking of putting in a category called either extras or non-networkservices, as we do get dragged from pillar to post at times, however when the report is produced, it wont show this etc.

    Suppose what I am asking is what sort of framework/setup do you people use when logging and recording jobs?? I know in the future we will be rolling this out to all staff, at the moment it is currently contained to our dept.

    Thanks fro any advice

    Our service desk use Service Now

    Good system with lots of customization possible, and tons of different workflows available.

    At the moment it's all logged by IT service desk folk, but i think self service is being looked at too (Makes sense)

    We are another Service-Now house, it's not cheap but it works.

    Another solution to look at could be SpiceWorks
