Do you use Saved Searches in NetSuite? We at SuiteRep use them nearly daily. They are at the heart of what makes NetSuite run. They enable incredible productivity workflows for companies around the world. But sometimes, there may come a point where a Saved Search cannot fulfill a workflow need. Where do you turn when you face this shortcoming?

The Good

Saved Searches enable us to do countless wonderful things. They help us find specific items within a certain criteria and allow us to utilize such information to run our businesses. What is even better is that these searches can be saved for future use or implemented within other NetSuite automations to accomplish truly wonderful things.

The Limitations

Yet having noted the strengths of Saved Searches, there are a number of shortcomings by nature. For instance, things can get rather complex with search joins, formulas, criteria, and filters. We at SuiteRep can help you get the most out of the intricacies of Saved Searches. But sometimes there is a need for something more out of a Saved Search than what it can offer alone. SuiteRep can help with this too.

The Better

We have partnered with a number of companies to bring the strengths of Saved Searches to an entirely new dimension. Through Suitelets, NetSuite can run customized searches with unique buttons, automations, and even more with SuiteScripting. Perhaps you need a checkbox to select items for printing, or perhaps you need another associated sublist for reference or further automation. The imagination is the limit when it comes to customized Suitelets. It is also possible to put a direct link to this page in the menu bar for easy access for you and your coworkers. An additional benefit to Suitelets is that they can be accessed without the need for login if so desired. This provides companies the opportunity to display important information on an office monitor for general viewing.
