How do I follow up on the IT request I have logged?

Whether you have called the IT Service Desk at 0218084367, sent an email to help@sun.ac.za or logged a request via the ICT Partner Portal at https://servicedesk.sun.ac.za you can do the following:

  1. Log in at https://servicedesk.sun.ac.za with your username and password.
  2. Select: Requests, My requests. The status of all the requests that you have raised will be displayed.

How do I follow up if I sent an email to help@sun.ac.za?

If you send an email to help@sun.ac.za it automatically logs a request on the IT Service Portal. You can check on the status of your request as follows:

  1. Log in at https://servicedesk.sun.ac.za with your username and password.
  2.  Select: Requests, My requests. The status of all your requests will be displayed.

How do I follow up on a request I reported by calling the IT Contact Centre?

If you call the IT Contact Centre, the service agent will log a request on your behalf on the IT Service Portal. You can check on the status of your request as follow:

  1. Log in at https://servicedesk.sun.ac.za with your username and password.
  2. Select: Requests, My requests. The status of all your requests will be displayed.

Can you follow up on a request emailing help@sun.ac.za again?

If your request have already been logged and you have a reference number, please do not send another email to help@sun.ac.za. This will log a second, duplicate request which will only clog up the system and cause confusion. The same goes for replying to emails from help@sun.ac.za. Rather click on the request number and add your comment on the system.


How do I add a comment to my request?

  1. Log in at https://servicedesk.sun.ac.za with your username and password.
