In some occasions, multiple users are granted Administrator access to a NetSuite account. While this provides easy access and control for certain business scenarios, it has historically meant that certain configurations could be performed by a variety of users without any knowledge of who made those changes and when.
For example, prior to Version 2009.2, if a user changed an Accounting preference, there would be no way to know that the preference had changed without looking for its impact on transactions. If it was discovered that a change had occurred, there would be no way to know which user changed the preference or when, making cleanup- and future controls- very difficult.
With NetSuite’s version 2009.2 release, a new Audit Trail feature has been added to the following configuration pages:
Each of these pages have an Audit Trail link in the upper right corner that will link to the Audit History for that configuration page.
Clicking the link will bring up a page listing which preference was changed, by whom, on which date, as well as the previous and new setting of the preference. In this way Administrators will always retain a history of their previous system configurations and be able to easily manage how and when these preferences change.
