About AskMyHR

When employees submit a service request through AskMyHRRestricted Access, your request is sent directly to the relevant service area.

From the AskMyHR Service History window, employees can:

  • Read the communication thread related to a viewable service request
  • View and track the progress of your service requests online
  • Add documents and update submission as required
  • Access solved service requests (tickets), if looking for information or advice previously given
  • Submit, track, update and view your service history from one location
  • Close a service request (ticket) if your issue has been resolved

Service and support requests with a "Solved" status will be available for one year, then they'll be archived—but won't be deleted from the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.

Archived service requests can be retrieved by submitting a new service request.
