Assignment Overview

  • Imagine you are employed as a Help Desk Support person working for “XYZ Company”. Today you are tasked with logging and resolving your first IT Support Ticket on your own.
  • You will need to record a variety of information about the issue and come up with a resolution based on your knowledge of Computer Information Systems learned in readings/videos throughout the course.

Case Background

Meet Pavan. Pavan is a new employee at “XYZ Company”. Pavan will be working in the Human Resources Department as an Human Resources (HR) Generalist. 

Pavan does not yet have any hardware or software to begin working and has contacted you at Help Desk Support to get set up. Pavan mentioned that each of the other HR Generalists have a laptop computer, a docking station, two monitors, a keyboard, and mouse.

You also know that Pavan will need access to Microsoft Office 365 for accessing company documents/emails and QuickBooks for recording employee hours and pay information.

Pavan would like to get his access set up as soon as possible because he already has employees reaching out to him for assistance with pay issues and his boss asking when he can get started.

Case Requirements

After reading the case background and class materials, fill in the IT Support Ticket Template provided with relevant information.

  1. Give the ticket issue a name/title and issue description.
  2. List the hardware, software, or other components that are part of this issue. Are there any items you think Pavan or you might be forgetting (maybe ERP access)? If so, feel free to use your imagination and to add your ideas to your ticket. Consider what you have learned in each chapter and how it can be helpful with this issue.
  3. Name the people and processes impacted by Pavan’s issue.
    1. Pavan is the one with the issue but consider others who might be impacted by him not being able to do his work with Payroll and what department they might be in. 
  4. Go do some internet research to price a few of the items Pavan needs and enter these numbers into the budget.
    1. Note that all answers will vary and there is no right or wrong number here. The important component of this part of the assignment is that you can identify hardware and software and do some basic research to find those resources.
  5. Once you have considered all the components that are a part of this issue and identified anything needed to set up Pavan, please write Pavan an email in the second tab of the template (Part 2 – Resolution).
    1. Ensure you let Pavan know that you have resolved his issue and are closing his ticket.
    2. Also let him know what you did to resolve his issue successfully.
