New NetSuite for Android App released

On 31st May, NetSuite released their fuller-featured NetSuite for Android App. Now available for free download on Google Play, the app provides users with mobile-only features and out-of-the-box support for 19 languages.
Earlier this year, NetSuite released an initial version of the app which provided quick and easy time and expense management, including time entry and bulk uploads of multiple receipts captured as images on mobile devices. Below, we go through some of the new features.

  • Calendar functionality including the ability to view calendars of other users
  • Global search
  • Lists of records with view, filtering and quick sort options
  • Favorites for quick access to specific lists of records
  • Support for Nexus 7 and other non-camera devices
