Who you are, which organisation or client of Micad you work for, including a contact number.
This would include your name and username you use to login. The organisation may be the NHS Trust, university etc. If you are a contractor, give the name of the company you work for as well as the Micad client name. Always include a contact number in case we need to get hold of you regarding the ticket.
What the problem is.
Give a detailed description of what the problem is and how you came across it. Include details such as the user(s), locations, IDs etc. Instead of giving “I get an error when searching for a job”, it’s more useful to say, “I get the following error when searching for 154875…” For complex issues, give a step-by-step guide if you can, giving enough detail so that Micad can replicate the same issue for you. If you are unsure about what may have caused a fault, give an explanation as to what you were doing immediately before the problem arose. Try to make note of the date and time you first noticed the problem.
What is a URL?
A URL is the address of the webpage which you should be able to see in the address bar at the top of your browser window. Select this and copy into the ticket description.
How do I take a screenshot?
Windows captures the entire screen and copies it to the clipboard. This button is found in the upper right corner of your keyboard.
You can then paste the image into the post by pressing Ctrl+V.
To take a screenshot of a single window, hold down Alt when pressing PrtScn|SysRq
If you want to save the image as a graphics file, open Paint, press Ctrl+V and save.
