New streamlined process: Temporary Admin Requests
IT's created a new way to request administrative rights on a computer - for example, to install or configure software. Rather than calling or emailing the IT Help Desk, you just fill out a quick 5-line SharePoint form (here: http://sharepoint.yose.nps.gov/Admn/IT/SitePages/Temp%20Admin%20Requests...). We anticipate being able to process these several times a day; you'll be kept informed of progress via email. (P. Lindstrom)
