Navigating the Service Center

IT Solutions created a short video to introduce the TWU community to its Services Suite. The Technology Service Catalog, Knowledge Base, and FAQ are navigable using categories, tags, and/or search. Search returns results from the entire Technology Services Suite. Both the Knowledge Base and Questions list popular items and tags, and recent items.

The Technology Service Catalog can also be viewed in an A-Z format. Further, services can be added to favorites for quick access. Once a service is added as a favorite, it can be accessed through the My Favorite link on the Services menu. Individuals may also access their recently viewed services by clicking Services > My Recent.
