When office computers or printers will not work (make sure you have tried to reboot first)
When a critical software application fails to work
When you have forgotten your password
Examples of non-critical problems that should be reported to the Office Assistant include:
Malfunction of an individual computer in a lab
Malfunction of a non-critical software application (Use your discretion)
Minor malfunctions of office computers (Any minor problem you can live with for 24 hours)
