In order to access and start the TEWeb client, users are now required to be logged into the campus single sign-on (SSO) system called CAS. This uses the same credentials that are used to sign-on to other SSO applications such as Moodle or Workday. If you are not already logged into CAS, you will get redirected to sign-on.

Note that the actual URL of the TEWeb client is shown after successful login. You can bookmark this URL if you like for future use:

The default mappings can be changed and customized to an individual’s preferences through the Settings gear icon.

Power Pad

The Power Pad is the row (or rows) of key functions that are listed at the top of the emulator window. This makes these functions a quick click away when they are needed. The power pad can be particularly helpful when on a mobile device such as a tablet. It looks like the following image.

Note that the Power Pad is scrollable. There are many functions available. The Power Pad can also be changed and customized to an individual’s preference using the Settings gear icon.

Note: For Printing, it is easier to use the “Print” button in the Power Pad. However, if you use CTRL + P, make sure that you are in the CICS environment before pressing CTRL + P. If you are not, the print page display will not be displayed properly.
