Layton ServiceDesk - Using Layton ServiceDesk - End User - Interface
This section focuses on how the End User will use Layton ServiceDesk to log and monitor their own Requests. If End Users are not to be given access to the system, then the Login page can be modified to remove End User login and Registration links.
Layton ServiceDesk also offers NTLM Auto Logon (single sign-on) which will authenticate by the currently logged in domain username and automatically log them into the ServiceDesk without having to enter their credentials.
Click the Login End User button and enter the End User name and password.

The setting for this button is Administration > General Settings > Security > Global End User Security > End User Home Screen.

For the Self Service option to be available for End Users, it must be enabled in Admin > General Settings > Security > Global End User Security > Allow End User Self Service.
