    User calls and requests that a hole be drilled in the desk so that a cable can be easily strung through for a PC.  What would you advise?

    Correct Answer
    Have user call Maintenance.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to have the user call Maintenance. Maintenance is responsible for handling requests related to repairs and modifications in the office space. They have the expertise and tools to safely drill a hole in the desk and ensure that the cable can be easily strung through without causing any damage. It is best to involve the appropriate department to handle such tasks rather than attempting it oneself, which could lead to potential risks or damage.

    • B.

      Let them know that the quota allocated is sufficient.

    • C.

      Advise user to go to Infonet web site and submit a Quota Request form

    • D.

      Suggest that user save files to c drive.

    Correct Answer
    C. Advise user to go to Infonet web site and submit a Quota Request form
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to advise the user to go to the Infonet website and submit a Quota Request form. This is the appropriate course of action as it allows the user to officially request an increase in their M drive quota. Calling the manager may not be necessary as the user can directly submit the request form. Informing the user that the allocated quota is sufficient would not address their request for an increase. Saving files to the C drive is not a solution to the issue of needing more storage space in the M drive.

    • D.

      Tell user to post mail changes to HR

    Correct Answer
    A. Advise user to go to IMS and submit changes via IMS.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to advise the user to go to IMS and submit changes via IMS. This is because IMS (Information Management System) is likely the designated platform or system for managing employee information and making updates to the Employee Directory. By directing the user to go to IMS and submit changes, it ensures that the correct process is followed and the changes can be properly recorded and implemented.
