Submitting Tech Help Requests
When requesting assistance from the IT department, a ticket can be created by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line indicate the location of the issue and a few word summary (for example “Rm. 245 Smart Board light bulb”). In the body of the email you can write a sentence that summarizes any more useful information. Your ticket will be addressed as soon as possible.
Printing, Copying, & Scanning
Print your file to “oostburg_print” on Spiceworks. Make sure if you need a single-sided or full color document you specify that in preferences.
Go to any copy machine in the district (the big ones are black and white only) and use your RFID badge to “swipe” in or your PIN number (if you have one).
Select “Secure Print”. Print all desired pages and then log out.
