This topic covers general navigation and toolbar functions in Help Desk Premier.


The functions of Help Desk Premier are accessed via buttons in the main toolbar which runs horizontally across the top of the page. Alternatively, use the list in the left hand pane.

Hover the mouse over a menu in the main toolbar to display a drop-down sub menu. Again, the options in the sub menu match those in the left hand pane.

The Tickets, Changes and Assets drop-down sub menus display recently added items.

In this help forum, we describe navigation in the following format:

Menu button ? Sub Menu or drop down list ? List item

Managing Your Account

Your account is managed using the drop-down menu in the top right corner of the interface. Click?Welcome <username>?to access it.
