Reshma Shrivastava, Functional Consultant
is that time of the year again…
your NetSuite home dashboard starts showing messages about the
you started thinking about what are the new functionalities, features
& enhancements and how they can enhance your business?
no fear…Upaya is here to the rescue!!!
is our quick rundown on the significant points of the new version of
to 2018.2, you could create a GL numbering sequence only from the GL
Audit Numbering, Sequence and GL Audit Numbering pages. In 2018.2,
you can also create a GL numbering sequence from the GL Audit
Numbering Sequences page at Transactions > Management > GL
Audit Numbering Sequences.
NetSuite 2018.2, NetSuite no longer supports 1099-MISC and 1096
forms. The 1099-MISC and 1096 reports that were previously found at
Reports > Sales Tax US are no longer available. If you have not
already done so, you must find another provider for your 1099-MISC
and 1096 reporting needs. NetSuite still supports the tracking and
reporting of 1099-MISC payments.
no longer have to provide an initial password to new users, because
standard NetSuite user access email templates now contain a synthetic
field. This field triggers the generation of a temporary URL with a
verification code that is included in the email sent to new users for
accessing NetSuite. New users can click the URL in the notification
email, and create their own NetSuite passwords.
enhanced security, NetSuite 2018.2 requires two-factor authentication
(2FA) for all Administrator, Full Access, and other highly privileged
roles in all NetSuite accounts. This requirement includes access to
production, sandbox, development, and Release Preview accounts. The
Administrator and Full Access roles are designated as 2FA
authentication required by default, and this requirement cannot be
removed. Certain highly privileged permissions mandate that a role be
2FA required by default.
the past several releases, NetSuite has offered a free, built-in
two–factor authentication (2FA) solution. The RSA feature is no
longer available for purchase by new customers. We recommend that
customers still using the RSA feature switch to the NetSuite 2FA
solution as soon as possible. The RSA feature is retired as of
2018.2. All customers still using RSA will be transitioned to the
NetSuite 2FA solution when they are upgraded to 2018.2.
when you created a new sandbox account, you had the opportunity to
add a suffix to the account name. Now, you can change or update your
account name suffix before every refresh or activation. This option
helps users differentiate between multiple accounts. After entering
the desired text for the suffix, to submit the request for a sandbox
refresh, click Copy Data to Sandbox or Refresh Sandbox. The suffix is
appended to the account name and appears in the Account Name field
after the refresh is complete and the account is activated.
2018.2 enables users with the Import CSV File permission to import
two new record types. The Customer-Subsidiary Relationship and
Vendor-Subsidiary Relationship record types enable users to add
multiple subsidiaries to vendor and customer records, and update
those records, as needed. To use the Import Assistant to create
multi-subsidiary vendors and customers, or update these entity
records, go to Setup > Import/Export > Import Tasks > Import
CSV Records. Choose the Relationships import type, and then the
Customer-Subsidiary Relationship or Vendor-Subsidiary Relationship
record type. These records are not visible in the user interface.
However, the fields on these records are available when you map your
Email Message form on the customer record now supports multiple “To”
recipients. Previously, it was only possible to add additional
recipients to the Cc or Bcc fields.

SuitePeople Core HR help videos. To access the Videos section, click
