WiscIT - Using HelpOnline to log a call, add notes to a call, and review past calls

HelpOnline provides a way to create a call requesting various services (help, network requests like data jack installations and activations, etc.) from DoIT.

Accessing HelpOnline

To access HelpOnline, you can either login to My UW or go directly to https://wiscit.wisc.edu/CherwellPortal/WiscIT.

  1. Go to http://my.wisc.edu and login with your NetID and password.

  2. Open the My DoIT Help Desk Cases app. If you do not see the app on your homepage, search MyUW for "My DoIT Help Desk Cases". If desired, use the "Add to Home" button on the search results page for easier access in the future.

  3. Begin the application by clicking the green "launch" button, then click on the link to the "Self-Service Portal" or click "here" on the next page.


    You will be automatically signed into WiscIT then brought to the homepage, where you can select to create a new ticket or view an existing one.


    Creating a New Ticket

    If you have a new question or issue with which you need help, you can create a ticket by selecting Create a New Ticket.

    • Step 1: Enter a detailed description of your issue.
    • Step 2: Answer the given questions regarding the urgency of your issue.
    • Step 3: If your contact information is missing or incorrect, enter the correct contact information. Review the ticket information for completeness and accuracy, then click Submit to create the ticket.

    At this point, you should see a small window with a confirmation message as well as your ticket number. If you need to contact the Help Desk for additional information on your ticket, you can provide this number for faster service, so it is recommended that you copy it down for future reference.

    Reviewing Past/Current Tickets

    To review a past or current ticket, log into HelpOnline, select View Existing Tickets then double click on the ticket you want to open.

    Adding Notes to your Ticket

    You can also update a ticket which you previously created, if the ticket is still open. To do so:

    1. With the ticket open, click on the Edit button in the upper left-hand corner.

    2. You can now click the blue Add Comment link to the right of the "Comments" field. A small pop-up window will appear where you can record the notes you'd like to add to your ticket.

    3. Upon submitting your comment, you will receive a confirmation message. When you return to the main screen of your ticket, you should see your comment recorded in the "Comments" field.
