This overview provides information and answers questions about the new TEA Login (TEAL) secure access. TEAL provides greater, more flexible secure access to TEA applications. Eventually, all TEA applications will use TEAL.
Why do I need a new login?
TEA is gradually moving all of its applications to the new, more up-to-date secure access system. To access the product you selected, you need a TEAL login. The good news, though, is that you will no longer need to maintain several logins for access to different roles within the same application.
How do I get a new login?
Go to TEAL and then click Request New User Account. Fill out and submit the form.
Do I have to maintain two logins, one for TEAL applications and one for TEASE?
Not if you don’t want to. You can link your TEASE accounts to your TEAL account so that once you have logged into TEAL, you can open any TEASE application by selecting a link. Note, though, that once you link a TEASE account, you must open it from TEAL from then on. Click the Link TEASE Account button to get started once you have logged in to TEAL with your new login.
But I have several TEASE accounts. What about them?
TEAL requires only one account to access all TEA applications.
If you have several TEASE accounts, you can set up a link to each one from inside TEAL. After that, you only need the one TEAL login, and you can select the TEASE account from a list.
If I am an approver for an organization using TEAL, what do I do?
First, request access to TEAL. After you are granted your account and log in to TEAL, click Edit My Profile. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Manage Approver Status to request approver status for the application. If you need more help, you can find a link to Web-based training for approvers on the Manage Approver Status page.
If I need help, what do I do?
On the login page and on every page in TEAL is a link to the Help system. On the login page there is also a link to Web-based training for end users. If you are still having problems, contact Computer Access.
