Service Request System Update Goes Live Monday, May 9th!

Beginning Monday, May 9, ithelp.ecu.edu sports a brand new interface – lean and organized with the same quick turnaround time that you’re used to.

The new service request home page also includes a quick way to check the status of your submitted requests, a new student/employee Getting Started guide and contacts for the IT Help Desk when you need to speak to a live technician.

Here’s how it works:

Choose Your Category

We’ve implemented a service catalog organized by category. Just click the category that is the closest match to your request and log in with your PirateID to open the list of services.
Don’t see what you need? Once you log in, access the Services A-Z link in the top menu bar. And you always have the option to enter a general request or contact the IT Help Desk.

Choose Your Service

Once you click a service catalog category, the entry list opens. Click the entry you need, and the entry opens to a description. From the entry, you can always click a link in the breadcrumb menu at the top to go back to the category or the service catalog. The entry title and description help you decide if this is the correct entry for you. Lastly, click the topmost button from the list on the right to open the request form.

Submit Your Request

Complete the form and click the Request button. You’re done! You receive an acknowledgement email with your ticket number.

Every service request has a service level agreement (SLA) that determines the resolution time. You can check the progress of your ticket at any time by clicking the My Submitted Tickets button on the service request system home page.

We Do The Rest

Just as ECU is committed to its students and community, ITCS is committed to providing prompt assistance and personalized attention to users. Want to see how we intend to continue this promise? Get a sneak peek through this demonstration video.

OneStop Retires and Pirate Port Emerges

After much brainstorming, deliberation and careful curation, ITCS is now ready for the full transition to Pirate Port, ECU’s successor for the OneStop web portal.

Both sites have been open for some time with students, faculty and staff providing feedback on usability and layout.

And now, effective January 2016, OneStop officially retires and Pirate Port becomes the exclusive gateway for all the administrative and business tools you now use in OneStop.

If you’ve not done so already, log in to pirateport.ecu.edu with your PirateID and passphrase. Want more of an introduction? See this super short introduction that outlines new features:

Click the Tools button to access all the ECU tools for which you have access.

Over the next two months, ITCS will finalize the transition of all tools to Pirate Port. In the meantime, you can work from either interface until January 2016, when OneStop will no longer be available.
