Tickets per month?
We often compare how many machines/technicians we have on here but I haven't seen a comparison of how many support tickets we get.
So, could someone give me some ideas as to whether our numbers are high or low for our size of school.
We have about 500 PCs, plus all the usual peripherals, and about 1100 kids at the moment.
Before Xmas, we were getting about 120 tickets in a month, plus about 15 or so password resets a day, plus probably half a dozen little jobs that slip through the net per day.
After Xmas, we are getting about double the number of tickets, but slightly fewer little jobs that don't end up on the helpdesk.
How does this compare to others?

I was thinking of bringing this up today. weird.
We have about 600 curriculum machines and about the same number of pupils.
Last week we had over 100 support tickets, but we do tend to log almost anything.
since 01/01/2012 we have had 312 tickets opened not including ones that were already on the system at that point.

So, do you log things like password resets, or if someone comes and asks for advice?

Yes password resets are normally logged, although my colleague just did one and it hasn't been. Most calls are logged via us, mot many staff use the web portal / email address.

We have had 81 since the beginning of the year, but they are a bit rubbish at logging stuff here. That's with 300 machines and 180 staff roughly.

we are on 196 so far for january, of which about 80 are from our primary school, and 177 are closed calls
(thats not a bad resolution rate given we have no NM, and are therfore strategically challenged and a set of skilled hands down!)
and seeing as everyone else s doing it... 850 pcs, 60 laptops, 300 staff, 1300 students over 2 sites.

Wow - We've close 138 this year in our 3 man team. We've been back 15 days! This doesn't include password resets, or some of the quick telephone calls or some of the jobs that you get roped into when your already in the room. 48 are still open but should be a lot lower by the end of the day.
1200 Students - 200 Staff - 700 computers.

Over the last 2 years the average is around 150 tickets per term (I don't count password reset or anything I'm doing on the move).
Currently open: 28
Closed this year: 440
Students: 175, Staff: 95, Computers: 160
I've seen a rise in tickets this year, but I have so far put that down to the transistion to Windows 7

We get around 40 or 50 tickets per week. We have around 1,400 client devices and 1,500 end users.
Staff use our helpdesk pretty well, but touch wood we have little technical problems.

We get about 250-300 a month, 1500 devices, 2000 full time and 5000 part time students, despite repeated threats, not all the little jobs are logged. I can understand it though, takes longer to log it than complete it.

We currently seem to average around 80 tickets a month but it does fluctuate. That doesn't include all the door password resets, urgent phone calls that get fixed that second etc... we do try to log them but by the time you get to it the door or phone could be going again (busy place our office at present due to many things!) so if we logged every little detail such as the queue of students on the first week back it would be higher.
We have around 240 PCs at present, around 30 BYOD users, 20 or so Sixth Form laptops issued to students and a roll of 470 staff of 40 or so

As a NHS trust over 2 local authority areas we average on around 100 incidents a day this is for some 4000 staff and similar amount of machines. This involves password resets, new user forms, everything. The odd one gets missed but we do not do anything without a job. There are some managers (including those who run the desk) that think doesn't apply to them.
We close about 80 a day if not a little more, most are resolved one 1st/2nd line by a team of 6 of us then there are engineers and other areas we can chuck incidents.
