project and would like to have some materials for the users to refer to.

Raed,

Absolutely! Right now I’m prepping it to remove any company info that
shouldn’t go out. Both Guides should be ready by EOD.

BTW, the guides are based on 3.8.7, including screen shots, etc.

Jason, Miachael, Yan, Kevin, Raed, Tyler & Drew,

I will certainly mail each of you a copy of both the User’s Guide as well as
the Queue Admin Guide. You must keep in mind that this documentation is
tailored towards the way we do things here at LBNL. We have over 100 Queues
that are used to support Application Projects/Systems/Support. In most
cases, we have a WorkFlow process that includes Review & Approval of
requests before being moved to the support Queue as well as QA procedures
that allow for separate approval of QA test results (by another team or the
requestors, etc) before migration to production & Resolution. That means I
the documentation will be referring to Ticket Status values we added, Custom
Fields & Scrips created for these processes.

As long as you guys plan to rip out what you don’t need, it can be useful as
a baseline of instruction on understanding terminology, privileges,
notification scrips, searching & reporting (including dashboards), and on.

I hope it will be useful for you.

I’ll be sending them out in a couple of hours.

that allow for separate approval of QA test results (by another team or
the

requestors, etc) before migration to production & Resolution. That means

the documentation will be referring to Ticket Status values we added,
Custom

Fields & Scrips created for these processes.

As long as you guys plan to rip out what you don’t need, it can be useful

on.

I hope it will be useful for you.

Hi Kenneth,

I’d appreciated a copy of the guides as well.

Jason, Miachael, Yan, Kevin, Raed, Tyler & Drew,

I will certainly mail each of you a copy of both the User’s Guide as well as the Queue Admin Guide. You must keep in mind that this documentation is tailored towards the way we do things here at LBNL. We have over 100 Queues that are used to support Application Projects/Systems/Support. In most cases, we have a WorkFlow process that includes Review & Approval of requests before being moved to the support Queue as well as QA procedures that allow for separate approval of QA test results (by another team or the requestors, etc) before migration to production & Resolution. That means I the documentation will be referring to Ticket Status values we added, Custom Fields & Scrips created for these processes.

As long as you guys plan to rip out what you don’t need, it can be useful as a baseline of instruction on understanding terminology, privileges, notification scrips, searching & reporting (including dashboards), and on.

I hope it will be useful for you.

I’ll be sending them out in a couple of hours.

Kenn

Hi Ken,

As i’ve started a similar document as a baseline for instruction to new

It may be usefull for other french RT user’s.

Raed & Kevin,

I’ll have to send these to your individual email address as the User’s
list will stop it cause the attachments are so large.

Absolutely! Right now I’m prepping it to remove any company info that
shouldn’t go out. Both Guides should be ready by EOD.

BTW, the guides are based on 3.8.7, including screen shots, etc.

Hello Ken,
Good Day!

Can I have a copy also. I really need to know more about RT.

Thanks in Advance
Rocel

20/20,

Sure.

Kenn Crocker

Hate to feel like I’m jumping on a bandwagon; but I would appreciate a
copy as well.

-Matt

Asif,

Sure.

Kenn

I like to get a copy to if that is possible.

Jason, Miachael, Yan, Kevin, Raed, Tyler & Drew,

I will certainly mail each of you a copy of both the User’s Guide as
well as
the Queue Admin Guide. You must keep in mind that this documentation
is
tailored towards the way we do things here at LBNL. We have over 100
Queues
that are used to support Application Projects/Systems/Support. In most
cases, we have a WorkFlow process that includes Review & Approval of
requests before being moved to the support Queue as well as QA
procedures
that allow for separate approval of QA test results (by another team
or the
requestors, etc) before migration to production & Resolution. That
means I
the documentation will be referring to Ticket Status values we added,
Custom
Fields & Scrips created for these processes.

As long as you guys plan to rip out what you don’t need, it can be
useful as
a baseline of instruction on understanding terminology, privileges,
notification scrips, searching & reporting (including dashboards), and
on.

I hope it will be useful for you.

I’ll be sending them out in a couple of hours.

Kenn
LBNL
