• The Information Technology department administers “Tech Tickets” to assist YCOE employees in using technology. YCOE staff needing assistance should contact their immediate supervisor to request any technology support, including: help for Windows or Mac support, email help, answers to software questions, assistance ordering hardware and software, computer equipment set-up, video/teleconferencing scheduling, and connectivity issues.

      Supervisors/Requestors need to log in to the YCOE Tech Ticket web site and input a Ticket with a detailed description of the assistance needed. 

      Email Accounts

      Email Account Creation:  Requests for new email accounts, or email account name or location changes, may only be submitted by the HR Department via a request through the Tech Ticket system.
      Email Account Deletions:  Supervisors should notify the HR Department to request the deletion of e-mail accounts for departing employees. See the Employee Separation Procedure for complete information.
      YCOE Outlook Web Access
