TDX: Track Miscellaneous User Situations (OIT User Support)

It is important that each interaction with our users is documented within TeamDynamix. However, users sometimes contact the Service Desk for situations that do not clearly conform to the various ticket classifications we use. This article covers how to handle these miscellaneous situations within the ticket application.

    • Be sure to include any applicable URLs from the [email protected] website (it.umn.edu) that you found in response to their question.
  5. In the Responsible field, put Service Desk.
