    1. NetSuite: Search Export
      The NetSuite Search Export is one of our favorite tools and we highly recommend taking advantage of it! This Google Chrome Extension developed by David Smith allows the user to export any saved search to SuiteScript 1.0 or SuiteScript 2.0. Simply create a Saved Search in NetSuite, save the search, open up the search in edit mode, then click ‘Export as Script’ in the top right corner.

    1. NetSuite: HTML Script Notes
      This Google Chrome Extension developed by David Smith allows JSON Objects in the Execution Log to display in a hierarchical tree for easier readability. This extension automatically finds Key:Value pairs and color codes them accordingly. For extended functionality, HTML tags can be used in your script logs to improve readability.In our example, we created a simple dayJson object that contains a numerical map – days of the week then use nlapiLogExecution and JSON.stringify to display the Object in the Execution Logs.

  1. NetSuite Field Explorer
    The NetSuite Field Explorer Google Chrome Extension developed by Michoel Chaikin, still in early beta, allows you easily view, search, and filter NetSuite Record Fields. Not only does this plugin show the record field IDs, but also shows the current field values as a JSON Object. For example, if you view a checkbox field that is checked, the value of that field will display as “T” for True. To use this extension, simply navigate to the record in NetSuite you want to view, then click the icon on the top right of your Google Chrome Browser.
