tablesONLINE/CICS Administration

The tablesONLINE/CICS software provides a facility to assist with the administration of your system. It provides options for setting up new users, creating new applications, customizing your environment, and monitoring your system.

When you sign on to tablesONLINE/CICS as the administrator, the first screen that is displayed is the Administrator menu, as shown in Figure 32. Since all the screens in tablesONLINE/CICS are modifiable, your screen may not appear exactly as shown.
