Self-Registration for IT Services Accounts
IT Services' Self-Registration page pulls together a range of facilities that allow you to manage your accounts on many of the centrally offered services. You can request and set a remote access password, manage your TSM backup registration, check the details we have about you, eg email routings, usernames. Do you need to get Sophos, the anti-virus software? Or perhaps you need a VPN client? These and other site-licensed software packages can be downloaded via the Self-Registration page too.

Pilot of Appointments for Help Desk Support
The Help Desk will book appointments for people whose issues are easier to solve face-to-face or require personal identification. If the pilot is a success we aim to replace the drop-in service with appointments to gain these advantages:
  • Problems which do not require a personal visit can be identified and resolved quickly over the phone or via email
  • Knowing more about an issue before the user arrives, we can schedule the staff member with the best skill set match
  • If the staff member is ill, we can reschedule appointments
  • The issue can be researched in advance, reducing the amount of time needed for the appointment
