    NetSuite can send automatic emails for the following popular transactions:

    • Purchase Orders
    • Item Fulfillments
    • Customer Invoices
    • Sales Orders


    To email multiple people any of the above action items, take the following steps:

    1. In the message body recipient field: Enter the name of the recipient, only entities (customers, vendors, employees) existing in NetSuite can be selected.

    2. Enter the “Copy Others List:” Enter additional names of the recipients who should receive the emailed report or copy emails separated by semicolons into the “to” field.

    3. If you need the email process for NetSuite to be automated, Protelo can write a custom SuiteScript to do so,

    Simply click on the house (“home“) icon on your dashboard and navigate to “Set Preferences.” There, you will be able to change your color scheme on the “Appearance” menu.

    3. NetSuite Workflows

    NetSuite workflows are the individual pieces that complete the NetSuite puzzle. Workflows bring your specific business processes into the NetSuite system. Stop using manual processes. With NetSuite, you can build a custom business process tailored to your unique company needs inside your NetSuite account. Workflows allow for a point-and-click graphical interface with no SuiteScript required; in other words, any one of your staff members could help create this process in your system.

    Workflows are an extensive topic and one of our most frequently asked questions, so we’ve covered them in greater detail here.
