KBOX forms general guide

The college utilizes a ticketing software, KACE Systems Management Application, otherwise known as KBOX in many departments. You can access this software from the KBOX Forms link on www.llcc.edu/my-llcc under Faculty/Staff Resources or via the IT Help Desk icon on your LLCC desktop.

Your account should automatically sign into the software and take you to the homepage. If not, sign in with your username and password. Once you are signed into the software, you will see the options of submitting a ticket, viewing your recent tickets and accessing a Knowledge Base.

Each ticket submitted will be assigned a unique number at submission, and communication and updates will be sent to you via your LLCC email with an active link to open the ticket in KBOX. There, you can check the status, read or add comments, and attach screenshots and/or documents. If you have questions regarding a ticket submission or processes, contact that department directly via telephone or email.
