Information needed when placing a call

When you contact the Helpdesk, the person answering your call will attempt to resolve your problem. If they are unable to do so, they will route your call to the appropriate KCC staff member who will contact you.

There are several pieces of necessary information that we will need to solve your problem and/or verify that your problem is routed to the appropriate person. Please provide the following information when placing a Helpdesk call:

  • Your full name.
  • The room number and location of the problem.
  • A phone number or alternate means of contact.
  • The type of equipment with the problem (printer, scanner, monitor, etc. …).
  • A clear, detailed description of the problem. Include the exact wording of any error messages or a screen shot of the error.
  • The version of the software program in which you are experiencing difficulty. Usually the version is available in the application's Help | About.

Depending on the type of problem, you may be asked some additional questions.

Any detailed information that you may provide will expedite problem resolution. We offer full support of all our standard installed Windows software. Please note: The ITS Helpdesk only supports college-owned equipment that is located in a Kankakee Community College facility.
