If you're experiencing a technical issue at your workstation, please try this mantra prior to submitting a work order, it may save you some time and frustration!
First, RETRY the task you are performing. If an application you are using doesn't seem to be functioning in the manner you normally experience, close the application and attempt the task again.
Second, REBOOT the device. In a lot of instances, simply rebooting your computer properly can fix issues you may be experiencing.
Finally, if after a reboot your computer or device still isn't working correctly, REPORT the issue using the work order system. Please allow us 2 weeks to address your needs. Status updates will be provided in the Spiceworks system.
