    Free Helpdesk

    Not really sure where this sholdl go to be honest so thought its best in here. I am looking into a free helpdesk solution for the school ideally that can be integrated to AD but any suggestions are better than none. Somethings thats quick and simple to use and the can ideally support more than one tech/admin user. I have started to look at liberum.

    Thanks

    If you do a search on the site theirs quite a few to choose from - a free one from a member on here I seem to remember. The above two recommendations generally seem to be the most popular free helpdesk's members recommend.

    Another vote for Spiceworks, and I'm quite pissed this evening so I know what I'm talking about for once.

    Ahh I didn't know it was - although TBH I have never tried to set it up with AD - I just have it syncing using IMAP to exchange and staff send to the account.

    GLPI has a helpdesk feature together with it's asset management. Although it has to be said that the helpdesk is not as user friendly toward non technical staff.

    another webhelpdesk here.

    The one techie license basically means you've got one techie login for it. If you pay for it, you can set it up to assign work to different techies....
    With the free version you can be logged into the same account more than once, so just run it as that and go for the good old NM verbally tells X to work on job 12 and Y to work on job 14 etc...

    We use OsTicket. No AD integration but it's dead simple for staff. You can even pull down tickets from an email (as you can with many).
