Have you ever been looking for a specific field on a NetSuite record, only to get lost in seemingly endless lists of tabs, sub-tabs, and sublists? What if there was an easier way?

Finding Fields with the Expand Button
There is a way, actually. NetSuite has a special “Unrolled” (or “expand”) button which will transform your complicated record into a long list in which all the tabs, sub-tabs, and sublists are exposed in a single view. Although this feature may make your field seem even harder to find, fields can actually be found quite quickly here when coupled with your browser’s powerful search feature.


Step One: Expanding Your View

Once you are on the record in question (in “View” or “Edit” mode), look for a small double box icon on the right side of the record tab. Once clicked, your view will expand into a long list.

Step Two: Finding Your Field Through Search

Now that the record is expanded, all fields are within the scope of your browser’s search. To access this search, type on your keyboard, COMMAND + F (for Mac) or CONTROL + F (for Windows). Now type in a keyword of the field you are looking for.

Step Three: Resetting Your Space

After finding your field, you can “collapse” the view again. To do this, click the collapse button on the right side of one of the darker green tabs. This will help to mitigate any confusion in the future and will return the view to its normal state.
