Help Desk Computer Check-In
Problem: Truman State University's Help Desk is responsible for 6,000+ student and staff computers with problems that inhibit the use of network resources. During times of high volume (such as virus outbreaks), an overwhelming number of computers in the help desk results in poor documentation of tickets and disjointed tracking of computers. I was asked to make the check-in process more efficient by automating the process of dropping off, documentation and tracking of computers.
Solution: The project was implemented using PHP and involved integrating a variety of technology and software packages. The online application performs authentication against Active Directory, retrieves user information using XML, generates a support ticket using a custom MSSQL interface to DKHelp Desk, and generates custom PDFs using FDF and advanced Javascript. Upon implementation, the interface improved the efficiency of the Help Desk's processing of computers by over 50%.
Technology used: PHP, Active Directory, XML, MSSQL, FDF libraries
