Bookmarking Your Cayuse 424 Application
Once you've gotten logged in to your Cayuse 424 application, bookmarking the location so it will be easy to get back to is a natural next step. However, after logging in, if you bookmark the site, your bookmark may contain information that can change, and if this information does change in the future it will not work correctly.
When you are creating a bookmark, the additional information is not normally visible. You only see the page title and where you want to put the bookmark:
But when visiting your boomarked page, if you see a URL that looks like this in the URL bar:
then you have boomarked the "Long URL" and this bookmark may not always work. The Long URL contains a colon and numbers after the .com (the port number) as shown in the yellow highlight above. (Your Long URL will contain your application name, usually your institution's domain name, where you see 'iandemo' in the screenshot.)
To change this, access your bookmarks in your browser and select your bookmark for Cayuse 424. Edit the Location for the bookmark to remove everything after .com except one slash:
This is called the Short URL and it will always take you to your Cayuse 424 application. Your Short URL will have your institution name followed by .cayuse424.com/.
Instead of editing an existing bookmark, you can also create a bookmark using your browser's function to create new bookmarks. Then simply enter the Short URL into the Location field.
