    Help Desk User Guidelines

    • Simplest: send an e-mail with a reasonably good subject line and a summary of what help you need to the appropriate e-mail destination (see table above for links); or
    • More detailed: use the appropriate Submit link in the table above and enter more detailed information, e.g.:
            • Operating System
            • Area (hardware, software, printing, etc).
            • Your idea of priority for the request/problem.
            • Whether the details are public or private.
            • Who (among us) you'd like to work on the problem.
      You can also keep up to date on the status of your (and other) help desk requests via the Track links in the table above.

    Some notes:

          • New Mexico General Computing covers DSOC, VLA, and VLBA;
          • CV General Computing covers for Edgemont Road, NTC, and AUI;
          • Don't panic: if you accidentally put in a help desk request in the wrong place, we'll almost certainly forward it expeditiously to the correct one.
