  • (2020-07-22) Patrick Gomez: It was working before but no longer working now.
  • (2020-06-26) NetSuite Developer: Extension has been a great help. Found a bug ,when viewing the field help for any Select field where the source is a custom record. If you click on the "Go to Source List", the extension assumes it is a custom list.
  • (2020-03-04) Luis Garcia: Love this extension. A HUGE time-saver and very versatile... However, it looks like it stopped working again with 2020.1
  • (2020-02-25) Cindy Lyle: I LOVE it and have been using it for a while!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

  • (2019-04-23) Mark Baker: Adding my voice to the chorus of lovers of this tool. Also echoing David's assertion that the tool does not appear to work in 2019.1. Anything we can do to help bring this back online?
  • (2019-03-11) David Parks: I'm sure you're aware, but functionality seems to have been limited with the 2019.1 release. Looking forward to the fix!
  • (2019-02-27) Paul Lawton: This was an awesome tool, which I relied on heavily, but it's no longer working for me since 2018.2 update. UPDATE: The dev has fixed this - Yay!
  • (2018-11-06) Sandeep K: All working. Thnak you.

  • (2020-07-21, v:2.7) Chance Fry: Custom records not allowing set field value
    When trying to set a currency field value the field does not set on screen. I have tried a value list and still have the same issue. I'm curious if this is a Chrome change or NetSuite specific with the new 2020.2 release coming soon. I have noticed some pre-release UI changes within the NetSuite environment.
  • (2020-07-20, v:2.7) Jesse Harrah: Issues with the extension
    The copy field id button is just copying '/core/help/fieldhelp.nl?f=' for most fields. The link to the custom field record is no longer displaying for custom fields. The options for setting mandatory, and disabled are missing, as well as the fields value being displayed. The table for select options is no longer showing up on select/multiselect fields. Thank you.
  • (2020-07-20, v:2.7) Lee Young: Copy Field Id button doesn't copy field id
    The Copy Field Id button is not copying the field Id, it's placing '/core/help/fieldhelp.nl?f=' on the clipboard.
  • (2020-03-14, v:2.4) Toynk Accounting: Copy Field ID Includes Prefix
    Pressing the Copy Field ID button copies the field ID to the clipboard prefixed by the following: "re/help/fieldhelp.nl?f=" Can you restore the functionality that only copies the Filed ID? This prefix is problematic and seemingly useless. Running 2020.1. Thanks
  • (2020-03-13, v:2.4) Jesse Harrah: It appears 2020.1 broke this amazing extension
    As the title states, the extension doesn't appear to be working in 2020.1. I'm unable to set field values, see list internal ids, see the links to the custom field / list. Thank you.
  • (2019-04-16, v:2.3) Pinoy Hatdog: "Copy Field ID" functionality no longer works in 2019.1
    As the subject states, when using the functionality, the ID is never stored in the clipboard.
  • (2018-11-05, v:2.1.1) Pavel Mishev: NetSuite Login Problem when Advanced Field Help Chrome Extension is enabled
    Hi, Marcel Pestana, Firstly, thanks from all of our team for your amazing and useful extension that saved us a lot of time and effort. The bad news is that we encountered an error on Saturday (3.11). The problem is that we cannot log in to NetSuite with any 2FA-enabled role, such as Administrator. When we type in email and password on the login page, that message is present on the screen: "An unexpected error has occurred. Please click here to notify support and provide your contact information." We suspected any of our Chrome installed extensions for NetSuite, and the lucky winner is your product. We hope that bug will be fixed soon so we continue to use one of our favourite extensions! Thank you in advance and best regards, Pavel Mishev
  • (2018-09-22, v:1.8) Extension Not working
    In 2018.2 Release is not working
  • (2018-09-20, v:1.8) David Parks: nifty extension seems to no longer work with 2018.2
    assuming you're already on the case, but it looks like the latest version has shut down the extension's functionality! super hopefully you guys get it back to working again soon, thanks!
  • (2018-08-14, v:1.7) Lee Young: Include the field id along with the link
    It would be nice to still have the field id with the link. That way one doesn't need to click on the link to copy and paste the field id.
  • (2017-09-20, v:1.6) Donald Tran: "An unexpected error has occurred."
    The title of this message is the exact error message that displays whenever you are trying to view a Field Help. As stated by the other users, this happened after 2017.2 and only affects out-of-the-box NS fields.
  • (2017-09-19, v:1.6) Unexpected Error
    As stated by the prior user, after upgrading to 2017.2, an unexpected error message appears for standard fields. Custom field are fine.
