ServiceNow, Now!

On Monday, June 25, CLA-OIT will switch from using our own customer request tool/ticketing system called RT to using a new University-wide shared cloud service called ServiceNow. We anticipate this change having an impact on everyone we support.

What's changing?

  • Different messages
  • email you receive will come from "University of Minnesota Service Desk" -- notice the .com address instead of
  • email subject line will start with INC123456
  • More messages
  • you'll receive an email confirmation upon ticket creation
  • you'll receive an email confirmation upon ticket resolution

What's staying the same?

  • The people supporting you. CLA-OIT staff will continue to be your first line of support.
  • The way you contact us for support. Continue to email or call 612-624-4357 (4-HELP).

What's improving?

  • Better collaboration and coordination with central OIT and other IT units across campus.
  • This change is the first step towards better tools for you. As the rollout of ServiceNow continues you'll have access to self service, a searchable knowledge base, and more.
