Super helpful time saver

The ERD tool has been very helpful in showing me whether fields and searches I want to cleanup are actually being used by anything else and safe to delete.

Saved hours on just one task

During the trial of Flashlight, I had a requirement to update all the help on a form in NetSuite...both where it was missing and updating what was there. Flashlight helped me quickly identify those fields with no help and link me directly to make the updates. This alone prompted me to request my company to invest in the full upgrade to Strongpoint.

Useful tool to see impact of changes quickly

Flashlight is very useful to being able to quickly see where a script is being used and how different objects are connected before I change anything.

Very Helpful!

Very easy to install with minimal effort. We've been using it for about a week or so and my first impression is that this will be very helpful. The dashboard has a good summary of your NS account health with tools readily accessible.

Flashlight

This tool came recommended to me during a Netsuite SuiteReview.
It's been particularly useful in determining the impact of bundle uninstalls and, also in identifying inter-dependencies within our account.
I'd highly recommend it to any Netsuite Administrator who has inherited a lot of customization that needs cleaning up.

ERD and Flashlight are Fantastic

I have been using StrongPoint since it came to market and it has been a great tool. I have been using the ERD function to ensure changes don't break anything else. Being able to see all connections to a field has often saved me from making costly mistakes.

Fascinating

Flashlight offers much insight into any and all of your customizations. What happens if I touch this field? Will I break a workflow? a script? Where does this field reside? What records? What searches? etc. It provides a plethora of information. A bonus is that you can also search to see where SQL formulas reside. For example, you know you created a formula and would like to use it, but forget where it is. Flashlight will find it for you!

I just started using this product. But, I am sure that the deeper I get there, will be no way that I could ever go without it!

Must-Have Admin Tool

The flashlight tool has become vital to our administrative process within Netsuite, particularly in identifying effects of field changes beyond delete/inactive dependencies. We all know how quickly Netsuite becomes over-customized, and this saves hour upon hour of research to find the scripts, workflows, etc. that a seemingly innocent field change will impact. Also, IDs missing help texts and bad custom field IDs, which are an absolute must when you've had multiple admins in your environment over time.

Flashlight

We currently use flashlight. We are still learning and growing with the product. So far, it has been extremely useful as we are new to Netsuite and this allows viability to areas we are not familiar with in Netsuite as new users and admins.

Incredible Product

I learned about Flashlight at SuiteWorld 2019. I met a number of Netsuite administrators that said this is a Swiss Army Knife of system documentation, change management, and risk management. For me, I have found the ERD to be most useful because it helps me to manage and prevent issues. I can clearly see how a field on the sales order is used in a script, workflow, and/or in saved search. Support is just as stellar as the product. We discovered an issue with the product and within no time, they released an update that corrected the problem. I highly recommend this product.

Administrator's Best Friend

Installing Flashlight has been one of the best things I've done as an admin. We have only been using NetSuite for about 2 years, but we already have a number of customizations in our environment. What led me to want to use the product was a third party approval script we had written for us that all of a sudden stopped working as intended. Flashlight allowed me to diagnose what features the script was affecting so that I could safely undeploy it without adversely affecting the system. In addition, the Spider alerted me to customizations and features that were lacking important information that I needed to address. It has allowed me to clean up our environment in ways I never would have thought of. I would recommend this product to anyone with NetSuite.

The documentations and tools have been very useful. The product have saved us valuable time. We've been using it for about 2 months and so far we're very happy with it.

Netsuite Administrator

The product is easy to install and offer free 14 days trial.
It is easy to use and features are intuitive.
It helps Netsuite Administrators to keep track of all the related fields and records, so that it reduces the risks of developing faulty custom solutions.
It is very helpful in tracking changes and in seeing the impacts of a new solution to the current system.
Highly recommended to companies that do not have resources to maintain and track all of the changes made to Netsuite.

FlashLight Review

I have been using Flashlight for just a few months, but I am really impressed with the level of detail it can provide. This tool is really helpful in creating technical documentation and specially in reviewing the ERD when a change is being made to an existing customization or adding a new one.

You can so easily look at all the places, a field for example, is being used to judge the impact of the change.

Great tool overall.
