I work in IT, and recently received a work request from someone higher up on the company ladder. Their message was pretty much:
"I received a tablet from a previous employee. I can only find one identification number on it. Please advise. My boss wants me to use it."
How do I politely tell them that this isn't really a question, and I can't do anything with the information they've provided? These devices don't have specific ID numbers attached to them, and they aren't locked to a specific employee.
Edit: When I said the devices don't have IDs attached to them, I meant my workplace doesn't use any ID number to exclusively assign the device to an individual. They simply use the numbers to keep inventory.
