A simple email is the quickest and easiest way to request assistance for all IT related issues. Immediately after emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, you will receive email confirmation that the ticket has been logged with the appropriate IT group. As progress is made, you will receive additional email communications updating you as to the status of your request, or letting you know if additional information is needed in order to complete the request.
It is highly recommended that an individual request is made for each distinct type of service requested to ensure all needs are promptly and effectively addressed. For example, if a requestor is having issues with both their PC powering on and would also like to request access to a shared folder. To get both issues quickly remediated, this should be submitted as 2 separate requests as there are different groups working on each issue.
