Tips and Tricks


What Changes to Expect with the Kingston Upgrade

The ServiceNow upgrade to Kingston will include several new features that will look, feel and behave differently than previous versions. Reviewing the upcoming changes is the best way for fulfillers to prepare.


How to Print a Ticket in ServiceNow

On occasion, fulfillers may need to print a hard copy of a ticket they are working on. A printer friendly option is available within the personal ServiceNow settings.


Do You Have the Right Risk/Impact?

The Risk/Impact is set by answering the five questions on the Risk Assessment tab before requesting a Change. The Risk/Impact allows the Change Advisory Board (CAB) to concentrate on the more important changes and keeps the Risk/Impact level standard across all Changes.
