Self Service

Overview


The LITS Self Service app, found on all devices enrolled in Jamf, offers a number of features that provide a consistent and robust experience. To launch the Self Service app:

  • Click the LITS Self Service app icon (Beloit College logo) in the dock
    or
  • Open Finder, click the Applications folder, and double-click LITS Self Service

Within the app, you can find the following self service categories:


Applications


Along the left side of the Self Service window are categories of different software titles and services available to users of that computer. If an app is displayed here, it can be installed by the currently logged in user, free of charge, without requiring login with an Apple ID. Many of the available apps are freeware; however some are licensed by the college for use on college-owned equipment.

To install an app, click on the app you are interested in and then click the Install button. If an app is already installed but isn't working properly, you can click the Reinstall button instead to reinstall the software.

If you are interested in a software title that is not currently available via Self Service, please contact LITS to inquire about adding it.
