We recommend enrolling in the optional online training program 'Records Manager - Advanced', to learn more about how to make the most of using TRIM.
All the online training remains available so you can refer back to it any time.
After online training you are welcome to request a face-to-face (or videoconference) Q&A or future information session with a Records Management staff member, especially if you need help deciding what records are registered in TRIM or what to name them. Register interest via Service Desk Online and include 'TRIM Q&A Session - <Training Program Name>' in the summary (title) of the request.
Step 2 - access request
Submit an online access form.
Step 3 - obtain access to TRIM (HPE Content Manager)
After you submit your access form, Records Management and the Service Desk process your request. If we need any further information we will contact you.
When finalised, you will get an email from the Service Desk, advising that Records Manager access has been activated. They will advise you on how to access TRIM, whether through a web browser (TRIM Web Client) or through a desktop program.
Note, it takes overnight for the access to be activated, so you need to wait till the following day to download the software.
