Page 1 of 5 UWA Service Desk The Service Desk self service portal allows you (staff or student) to not only monitor the progress of any Incident or request you have reported, but also to indicate whether an Incident has been resolved to your satisfaction or not. To facilitate resolution the Service Desk system will email you when a support staff member believes the Incident has been resolved; upon receiving the email notification you would then click on the link within the email to to be shown that Incident through the Service Desk self service portal. You are then able to read the solution and then indicate that the Incident is resolved to your satisfaction; alternatively you can indicate that the Incident has not yet been resolved and requires further work by the Service Desk support staff. Once you indicate an Incident to be resolved the system will automatically close that Incident and you will then receive an additional email to confirm closure of that Incident. Date: 22 October 2010

OR 1.Navigate to the Service Desk system; enter your UWA Person ID and Pheme Password before clicking the LOGIN button and then select the relevant Incident from the My Incidents list.

When you click Update the Incident will then be closed automatically. OR 3.If you believe the Incident has not been resolved to your satisfaction then select No from the Accept resolution drop-down list and then proceed to enter details, in Customer comments, as to why you believe the Incident has not yet been resolved. 4.Click Update. You will then be presented with your My Incidents view again. If the Incident has been closed then it will no longer be visible in youre My Incidents view – if you stated No to the resolution it will be visible but with the Incident state back to Active.; the analyst who originally resolved your Incident will then be informed that you have indicated the Incident has not yet been resolved to your satisfaction. Service Desk (Self Service Portal: Incident Closure) Enter appropriate comments as to why the Incident has not been resolved. Select No from the drop down list. Accept resolution Customer comments
Page 5 of 5 When the Incident is closed, either by yourself (having indicated Yes to the resolution) or automatically, you will then receive a final email notification informing you of the closure. IMPORTANT:Once an Incident has been closed it cannot be re-opened even if the problem or request hasnt actually been resolved; in this instance you will need to have a new Incident raised and the Service Desk staff will link the new Incident to the old Incident (for reference purposes). Possible outcomes: The following will occur dependent on the action you take, having received the resolved email notification, with the Incident: Accept resolution set to None: no response to resolution email notification – so in 3 days the Incident will automatically close. Accept resolution set to Yes: you accepted the solution, via the self service portal, and so the Incident will be closed. Accept resolution set to No: you did not accept the solution, via self service, and believe the Incident to still be unresolved so Incident state set back to Active with your Customer comments; and the analyst will be informed of your decision. You replied to the email, rather than going through the Service Desk self service portal, and so your reply will be attached to the Incident BUT the Accept resolution remains set to None. If you replied to the resolved email notification, rather than using the Service Desk self service portal, the time taken to respond may increase because the support staff member will need determine (from your email response) whether the resolution was accepted or not – so when possible WE RECOMMEND you always use the Service Desk self service portal!
