New Helpdesk Service Management System

Serving you better with ServiceNow

Library and Information Technology Services (​LITS​)​ has begun using a new cloud-based IT service management system​ called ServiceNow. This system now handles all of the Helpdesk tickets that you submit.

ServiceNow boosts our ability to manage our numerous and expanding set of campus services. It also helps us to make improvements and, most importantly, to better serve the needs of the campus community.

What's new

You might notice that ServiceNow has some differences compared with the former Helpdesk management system; these include

  • Return email address: The new system will be sending emails from "@service-now.com" instead of "@helpsuite.plattsburgh.edu"
  • Embedded links: Links in emails you receive from the system will point to https://suny.service-now.com/ instead of https://helpsuite.plattsburgh.edu/
  • Terminology: The system will classify ​Helpdesk ​calls or submissions as Incidents (​recording ​something that is broken) and Requests (​recording​ something new or ​which is requested ​to be changed).

What's the same

Some things aren't changing in the short term, so please continue to:

  • email your requests for service or incident reports to helpdesk@plattsburgh.edu;
  • use other service-based emails like "classrooms@plattsburgh.edu" as you have in the past;
  • use the incident and questions block/ button in your Moodle course pages;
  • use Banner and other request forms, such as the CPR, as you have in the past.

Future benefits

Full implementation of the new system will involve extension to or integration with other request-processing systems, such as Banner CPRs or Lab and Classroom Trouble Reports.
Our eventual goal is to provide you with a single point of contact for incident reporting and a fully documented catalog of services so that "no door is the wrong door" when requesting assistance from LITS tech services.
