NetSuite Global Search Auto Suggest

 

With the new Global Search Auto Suggest feature available from Version 2007.0, searching has never been faster. When you enable this feature, you can scroll through a list box of suggested matches as you type into the Global Search field. You can quickly select one of the suggested matches by using the mouse, or the up and down arrows, and select from a list using the mouse, Enter, or Tab.

To enable or disable this feature:

  1. Go to the Home tab>Set Preferences
  2. On the Reporting/Search tab, check or uncheck the Quick Search Uses Keywords and Global Search Auto Suggest boxes

The suggestion box displays a maximum of 25 results. If there are more matches, a More link is provided that you can click to view all suggested matches.

If only one suggested match is returned, NetSuite automatically selects that record.
