You can’t manage NetSuite effectively without comprehensive documentation of all the customizations in your account. But getting it isn’t easy — it takes time and resources you don't have, and is prone to human error. That’s where Flashlight comes in.
How many times have you asked yourself some variation of “If I change this, what will break?” NetSuite admins know that to be responsive in a customized environment, you need to know how things are connected. On its own, NetSuite doesn’t give you a way of seeing this. But Flashlight does.
Flashlight by Strongpoint provides on-demand documentation of your customizations — and shows you everything they’re connected to. With it, you can make changes with confidence, and manage NetSuite on an ongoing basis.
...a Swiss Army Knife of system documentation, change management, and risk management
Installing Flashlight has been one of the best things I've done as an admin
...very helpful in tracking changes and in seeing the impacts of a new solution to the current system
Being able to see all connections to a field has often saved me from making costly mistakes.
I am sure that the deeper I get there, will be no way that I could ever go without it!
Flashlight is a Built for NetSuite app that scans your production or sandbox account and produces comprehensive metadata documentation, giving you an accurate, up-to-date record of custom fields, forms, saved searches, workflows, scripts, user roles and permissions, and more.
Flashlight is ideal for system admins, developers and business analysts who work in NetSuite and often have to make changes to the platform. It is ideal for use in smaller organizations, with fewer users/customizations, though larger corporations can benefit, too.
Flashlight comes with a suite of easy-to-use tools and reports that leverage the documentation it produces to help with impact analysis, troubleshooting, change management and more. Watch a rundown of its main features here:
A single-user license of Flashlight is free to use in your production or sandbox environment, for as long as you need it. We only ask one thing in return — if you like it, head over to our SuiteApp page and leave a review.
It’s simple — Flashlight is free because we think every NetSuite admin should have it. We have a range of paid products for teams with more complex change management and compliance needs, and the documentation Flashlight produces is a big part of how they work. But for most admins, that documentation alone can be a critical time-saver that will make their job easier and less stressful.
No! Flashlight is a Built for NetSuite app that sits inside your account. All documentation is produced and viewed natively, so there is no need to export it outside the platform. That means no integrations, no controls and no synching data between systems.
