3 3 Getting Started Logging On Enterprise HelpDesk supports integration with Windows NT and Active Directory domains, and can be set up to authenticate users using their Windows credentials. This means that users can skip the logon screen. However, during evaluation you most likely will have to log on using a Enterprise HelpDesk account. To log on to Enterprise HelpDesk, you need a user account, which consists of a user name (sometimes called a logon name) and an optional password. Enterprise HelpDesk includes several default user accounts that you can use to log on: admin Has full administrative privileges. Password = admin. demo Has full administrative privileges. No password. guest Has limited privileges. No password. analyst, group leader, employee Role-based accounts with different user permissions. Used to demonstrate the issue-tracking workflow of Enterprise HelpDesk. No passwords. To log on: 1 Start your Web browser and go to the Web view logon page (typically where server is the computer name of your Web server). To log on to the default Web views: on the Start menu, click Programs > PC-Duo Enterprise > HelpDesk > HelpDesk Web. 2 In the Logon Name box, type a user name. 3 In the Password box, type the password. 4 Click Log On. After you log on, you will see a list of projects (in bold) and Web views (hyperlinks). Access to Web views is controlled by user permissions, so you see only the Web views you have permission to open. 5 Click the Web view you want to open. What's a Project? An Enterprise HelpDesk project includes a database of issues, and a set of definitions (such as queries, reports, and notifications) that work with the issue database. Enterprise HelpDesk includes a sample help desk project called HelpDesk. What's a Web View? Enterprise HelpDesk provides Web-based views of Enterprise HelpDesk projects. With Web views, you can provide separate views for employees and for help desk staff. Each view is accessed through the same Web-based interface. Different views expose different queries and fields to users. Queries determine what issues users can retrieve from the project database. For example, employees who are not part of the help desk don't need to see all the issues in the project database, just the issues they submitted.
4 4 Fields determine what information users can see and edit. For example, employees don't need to see the fields used by help desk staff for tracking and resolving issues.
5 5 Visual Tour of a Web View A B C D E F G H A. The buttons in the view toolbar allow you to exit the Web view, get help, and set options.

6 6 About the Default HelpDesk Views HelpDesk Shows all issues and issue information, and is intended for use by help desk staff. Enforces workflow rules and defines an issue lifecycle. Employee Shows only the issues and information submitted to the help desk by the employee. Internal notes and information added by help desk staff is hidden. Allows employees to submit new issues and check the status of existing issues. Exiting a Web View Web views are applications, not simple Web pages. Exiting by closing the browser window can leave database connections open and will not free your license. The connection will eventually time out, but until then you (and other users) may not be able to log on. To exit: In the Web view toolbar (the buttons displayed at the top of a Web view), click Log Off.
7 7 Issue Tracking: Roles and Workflow This section walks you through the workflow of recording, tracking, and resolving an issue. By logging on as a different user (employee, help desk analyst, or help desk group leader) at each step of the process, you ll learn about the different role each user plays in a help desk workflow. You ll also see how different views are customized for different users, and how workflow rules are enforced. The diagram on the next page shows the complete default workflow. In this walkthrough, we ll take a basic, four step path: New > Assigned > In Progress > Resolved You can customize the default workflow using the workflow editor in HelpDesk Web Admin.
8 Help desk roles and workflow 8
9 9 Employee View The Employee view is designed for reporting problems. A B C D E A. There are no Reports, History, or Contact buttons in the toolbar. Employees don t need these features to report problems. B. The Query list includes only one query: My Reported Issues. Employees can see only the problems they reported. D. There are only two tabs, because employees don t need to fill in the Resolution or Detail information, and they don t need to see the Contact, Inventory, or SLA information. E. There s no Owner field on the Overview tab, because employees don t assign issues. C. No ad-hoc query editor.
10 10 Step 1: Employee Reports a Problem Log on to the Employee view: 4 Click Save, and click OK when you are asked if want to save your changes. 1 Log on to Enterprise HelpDesk as employee. Open the HelpDesk - Employee view. 2 Take a minute to look over the Web view. You should notice a few differences from the view we looked at in Visual Tour of a Web View on page 5. Report a problem: When you save the issue, the text you typed in the Description box is automatically stamped with time and date information and moved to the Description Log box. 1 Click New to open a new issue. 5 Click Exit to exit the Employee view. 2 Enter some information about the problem you want to report. For example, suppose you cannot print a PDF file. a In the Priority list, click ASAP. b In the Problem Area list, click System - Printing. c In the Summary box, type Can t print a PDF file. d Click the Description tab, and then in the Description box, type a more detailed description of the problem: Tried to print a PDF file from IE and from the Reader, but the job just sat in the queue. 3 Click the Progress list. Note that it contains only one choice: New. Employees are not allowed to change Progress from New to any other value. This is part of the default workflow, which controls how an issue progresses through the help desk process.
11 11 Step 2: Group Leader Assigns the Issue Log on to the HelpDesk view: 1 Log on to Enterprise HelpDesk as group leader. Open the HelpDesk - HelpDesk Web view. 2 Take a minute to look over the Web view. You should notice a few differences between this view and the Employee view. HelpDesk View The HelpDesk View is a detailed view designed for use by help desk staff. A B C D E A. The Reports, History, and Contact buttons are available. B. The Query list includes a variety of queries. D. The Resolution, Detail, Contact, Inventory, SLA, and Child Issues tabs are available. E. The Owner field is present on the Overview tab. C. The Query Editor is available.
12 12 Check for new issues: After you log on, you need to select the appropriate query, sort, and layout so the Summary List shows you the information you need (in this case, information about new, unassigned issues). Each time you log on, Enterprise HelpDesk restores the same query, sort, and layout you used the last time. So in practice, you don t always have to select a query, sort, and layout. 1 Click in the Query box, or click. In the Queries dialog box, double-click All Unassigned Issues to list all issues where Owner = <None>. 4 In the Summary List, click the issue number of the Can t print a PDF file. issue. The issue details are loaded into the form at the bottom of the window. 5 Review the problem description (in the Description Log field). Search for resolved issues related to printing: Before assigning the issue to an analyst, you can check for similar problems that were resolved. It may be that this printing problem occurs frequently and there is a well-known solution. 1 Internet Explorer only: Click to show the query editor. You could also use the All New Issues query to list all issues with Progress = New. 2 In the Sort list, click Priority to list the new issues in ascending order by priority. 3 In the Layout list, click New. The New layout displays relevant information for new, unassigned issues. In contrast, the Assigned layout (which is the default layout) displays information (such as the assigned date and owner) that is relevant only for issues that are actually assigned to somebody. You should now see the Can t print a PDF file. issue at the top of the Summary List. The simple query editor performs a text-based search of most fields. However, we want to build a slightly more complex query that searchs only the Brief Description field. 2 In the Field list, click Resolution. The Resolution field contains a description of how a problem was resolved. 3 In the Test list, click Contains. 4 In the Value list, type print (without the quotation marks). 5 Press Enter or click to start the search. 6 If you don t see what you want in the search results, you can try expanding the search. In the Retain Query list, click Or.
13 13 Or combines the previous query (Resolution contains print ) with a second ad-hoc query. 7 Create an ad-hoc query that searches for issues where the Resolution field contains the string PDF. 8 Press Enter to start the search, or click. The Summary List will list all issues that match this query: (Resolution Contains "print") OR (Resolution Contains "PDF") Queries are case-insensitive, so you can search for either pdf or PDF. Assign the issue to an analyst: You assign an issue by clicking an analyst s name in the Owner list. After you set the owner, you mark the issue Assigned in the Progress list. 1 Return to the list of unassigned issues by running the All Unassigned Issues query. 2 Find the Can t print a PDF file. issue and load it into the form. 3 In the Owner list, click Help Desk Analyst. 4 In the Progress list, click Assigned. Note that the Progress list contains only New, In Progress, and Assigned. A group leader can change the Progress from New to In Progress or Assigned, but not to any other value (for example, Resolved). This is part of the default workflow. 5 Click Save. Note that now the Progress list contains only one choice: Assigned. Only a help desk analyst (or an administrator) can move an issue from the Assigned state. Exit the view: Click Exit to exit the HelpDesk view. Step 3: Analyst Works on the Problem While an issue is marked Assigned, it is waiting to be claimed by a help desk analyst. An analyst claims an issue by marking it In Progress, which indicates that the analyst is working on the problem. Log on and check for new issues assigned to you: 1 Log on to Enterprise HelpDesk as analyst. Open the Bugs- Development Web view. 2 Click in the Query box, or click. In the Query list, click My Assigned Issues to list the issues assigned to you that are marked Assigned. 3 In the Sort list, click Priority to list the new issues in ascending order by priority. You should now see the Can t print a PDF file. issue at the top of the Summary List. 4 In the Layout list, click New. Start work on the issue: 1 In the Summary List, click the issue number of the Can t print a PDF file. issue. The issue details are loaded into the form at the bottom of the window. 2 In the Progress list, click In Progress.
14 14 Note that the Progress list contains only Assigned and In Progress. In the default workflow, an Assigned issue cannot move directly to Resolved without first being marked In Progress. 3 In the Reports list, click Fixed Drives to check the disk space. 3 Click Save to save the issue. Investigate the problem: If you have PC-Duo Enterprise Inventory, Enterprise HelpDesk gives you quick, easy access to detailed software and hardware information for a user s computer. By simply typing in the computer name, you automatically display accurate, up-to-date information about software, hardware, and other assets. 4 In the Reports list, click Ports to check the IO address of the printer port. For example, you can use the inventory information to check the available space on the user s hard disk, or verify the I/O addresses for the parallel printer port. 1 Click the Overview tab, and in the Computer Name box, type GB. GB is one of the computers listed in the sample Inventory database included with Enterprise HelpDesk. 2 Click the Inventory tab. The Inventory tab displays a summary of the user's system, and provides a set of detailed reports that provide system configuration details, software and hardware change histories, and much more. The Inventory tab always displays the most recent information available from the PC-Duo Enterprise site database. Step 4: Analyst Fixes the Problem Suppose all it took to resolve this Can t print a PDF file issue was to walk over and reset the printer. Now that the problem is fixed, you have to mark the issue as Resolved. Resolve the issue: 1 If you exited Enterprise HelpDesk, log on as analyst and open HelpDesk / HelpDesk. 2 In the Summary List, click the issue number of the Can t print a PDF file. issue. 3 In the Progress list, click Resolved. Note that you have a number of other choices at this point:
15 15 Dropped - The employee no longer has a problem. Waiting - You are waiting for more information from the employee. To be Verified - The employee is trying your proposed solution to the problem. 4 Click the Resolution tab, and in the Time Spent (minutes) box, type the number of minutes it took you walk to the printer, reset it, and walk back to your desk. 5 In the Resolution box, type Reset printer. Click Save to save the issue.
17 17 More About Working with Issues Finding and Listing Issues You use the Query box and the Sort and Layout lists to generate and format lists of issues in the Summary List. A layout is the set of columns displayed in the Summary List. The Summary List displays the results of a query as pages. For example, each page may contain 15 results (the actual number of results per page is set by your Enterprise HelpDesk administrator). To browse the Summary List: Click to move back one page. Click to move forward one page. Click to go the first page. Click to go to the last page. To change the size of the Summary List: Click and to increase and decrease the number of visible issues. -or- Click Options and change the height of the Summary List. To print the Summary List: You can use the Summary List to generate reports. See Generating Reports from the Summary List on page 24. To refresh the Summary List Click. Running Global and Saved Queries The Query box on the Sumary toolbar allows you to run global queries and personal saved queries. To run a global or saved query: 1 Click in the Query box, or click beside the Query box. 2 In the Queries dialog box, double-click the query that you want to run. Global Queries are the predefined queries available to all Census users. My Queries are the queries you defined and saved while working in Census. Tip To see the definition of a query, click the query and then click. Performing Simple Searches By default, Enterprise HelpDesk displays a Simple search form (a Search For text box with a Go button). The Simple query editor allows you search the Summary List for issues that contain a specific string. For example, type "incomplete" in the Search for box and click Go to search the Summary List for issues that contain the string "incomplete". Simple search searches:
18 18 Text fields, such as Brief Description and Description Log. Choice lists, such as Severity and Substate. Number fields. Building Advanced Queries You use the Advanced query editor to build more complex queries that use wildcards and multiple search conditions. Predefined queries find broad categories of issues, such as all open issues or all assigned issues. Often you need to find issues based on more specific criteria. For example, you may want to search the Summary, Description, Notes, or Resolution fields for keywords. Or you may want to search for all issues submitted during a specific period of time. To define an advanced query: 1 Internet Explorer only: In the Summary Toolbar, click. 2 Click Advanced >>. 3 In the Field list, click the issue field you want to search against. 4 In the Test list, click a query operator. 5 In the Value field, enter the value you want to search against. Notes To save a query so you can use it again, click. If you type a search string in the Value box, press ENTER to start the search. When you choose a value from the Value list, the search starts automatically, but when you type the search string directly in the Value box, you must press ENTER. When you change the test in an ad-hoc query, you must click to run the new ad-hoc query. Text searches are case insensitive. Combining Ad-hoc Queries The Retain Query list allows you to combine an ad-hoc query with the previous query (which can be a predefined query from the Query list or another ad-hoc query). Use And to narrow the search and restrict the list of issues. Use Or to broaden the search and expand the list. Use No when you want to search the entire database of issues. For example, And allows you to search the Summary List. To search the issues in the Summary List: 1 In the Query list, click a query. 2 In the Retain Query list of the Ad-hoc Query Editor, click And. This combines the ad-hoc query with the current predefined query. 3 Run an ad-hoc query. Searching for Dates To search against dates, use the date format used by Enterprise HelpDesk to display dates such as Submitted Date. For example, to find all issues submitted since October 2004, use this ad-hoc query: Submitted Date >= 10/1/2004
19 19 Using the Contains, Like, and Not Like Operators Contains matches any part of a field, while Like and Not Like match the entire contents of a field. For example, the query Summary Contains "keyword" matches any issue that contains the string keyword anywhere in the Summary field. The query Summary Like Cannot print. finds issues where the Summary field is exactly equal to Cannot print. Because Like applies to the entire field, it is typically used with wildcards. For example, the query Summary Like Word hangs% finds all issues where the Summary starts with the string Word hangs. Not Like is also useful when combined with wildcards. For example, the query Problem Area Not Like "System%" finds all issues that are not system problems. Note that this example shows that you can use Contains, Like, and Not Like to search choice lists as well as text fields. Searching with Wildcards The Like, Not Like, and Contains operators support wildcard characters, which gives you considerable flexibility in the specification of search patterns. Using wildcards, you can search for inexact patterns of text in any field. Wildcard _ Matches Any single character. Wildcard % Zero or more characters. For example: [charlist] [^charlist] Matches " Contains fr%ze" matches any string that contains "freeze" or "froze" Like Install% matches any string that starts with Install Any single character in charlist. Can include spaces, but not the right bracket (]) character. For example: "SP" matches "SP5" or "SP6" Use a hyphen to specify a range of characters. For example: "[1-36-9]" matches the digits 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, or 9 To match the hyphen character, the hyphen must be either the first or last character in charlist. For example: "[-0-9]" or "[0-9-]" match any digit or a minus sign Any single character not in charlist. For example: "[^tb]rash" matches "crash" but not "trash" or "brash" To search for the wildcard characters % and _, you must enclose them in brackets. For example, to search for a percent sign, use the pattern "[%]". To search for character ranges in numeric fields (such as Issue and Revision Number), type quotations marks around the character range. For example, type "1[6-9]" to find issues 16, 17, 18, and 19.
20 20 Printing the Summary List You can use reports (Listing or Custom) to print the contents of the Summary List. For example, you can use ad-hoc queries to find all issues submitted during the given time period, and then print a list of these issues.

Click Link File to add a link to the file on your local computer.
21 21 Use attachments instead of entering large amounts of text (over 100,000 characters) into memo fields such as the Description field. If you want to be able to search against the text, you can put a summary or some keywords in the Description field. Linking Child Issues to a Parent Issue Enterprise HelpDesk allows you to link one or more child issues to a parent issue. For example, if you have several bugs that are all symptoms of the same problem, you can make those bugs the children of the main, parent bug for the problem. Or if a task consists of a number of sub-tasks, the sub-task issues can be children of the main task. By default, the parent issue controls the substate of the child issues. For example, when you change the substate of the parent to Fixed, all the children are also marked Fixed. If you want the substate of a child issue to be independent from the substate of the parent issue, load the child issue and on the Overview tab, change Substate controlled by parent to No. To add child issues to a parent issue: 1 Make a note of the issue numbers of the child issues. 2 Load the parent issue. 3 Click the Child Issues tab. For each child issue, click Add, type the issue number of the child, and click OK. Notes To view a child issue, click the issue number, owner, substate, or brief description of the issue.
