AITS - Service Desk - TDX - Transfer Hub Overview and Instructions

A Ticket Transfer Hub is the means to transfer requests between units at a University or System Office that are using TeamDynamix. Units that currently reassign responsibility for tickets within their ticketing application can continue to do so without the hub. The Transfer Hub should not be used for working tickets. The receiving unit should start working on the ticket after they have retrieved it from the Transfer Hub.

How the Transfer Hubs work

When a unit receives a request that they need to transfer to a unit in a different ticketing application, a technician will place the request into the appropriate hub. Any technician can place a request into a Ticket Transfer Hub; no special permissions are required.

When placing the request into the hub, the technician will pick which hub to place it in (UIS, UIC, UIUC, or System Office) and select the unit where the request should go. A small number of technicians representing their unit will be notified that a request was moved into the Ticket Transfer Hub.  They will have permissions to move requests from the Ticket Transfer Hub into their home ticketing queue where request will be worked normally.

  2. From the ticket, select Actions -> Move to Application
