Data Collections Help Desk

The DPI Data Collections Help Desk tool is a web-based problem tracking software called Footprints where users can create, update, and check the status of helpdesk tickets.

The Help Desk tool also has a searchable Knowledge Base.

The Footprints online help desk will primarily be used for WSLS, ISES, and CWCS support purposes, but may be used for any application managed by the Division of Libraries and Technology, including questions about SAFE, School Performance Reports (SPR) and Delegated Authority.
