Client Portal Quick Start Guide

Overview

There are a number of ways to get technical help through the ITS Client Portal and many useful new features.

Highlights of the New System

  • Emailing helpdesk@hvcc.edu will automatically create a new ticket for you.
  • Replying over email to ticket update notification will automatically log your reply in the ticket itself.
  • Attach documents to your ticket as you are creating it and any time afterwards.
  • Knowledge Base Articles
  • Resolved vs Closed: When a technician marks your ticket as Resolved this does not close the ticket. You will need to confirm that the resolution solved your problem before a ticket is marked as closed.
