The Dashboard is the first thing users will see when they login into the NetSuite, with dashboards users can get a high-level overview on what's happening on their day to day business.


  • Dashboard pages under each center tab displays a collection of real-time data relevant to the page and to the role of the user viewing the page.
  • When user’s login and select the role they would like to work in, they are directed to the home dashboard page.
  • The dashboard page is comprised of what are known as “portlets”. Refer to the above image for the sample dashboard portlets. These portlets can be configured to provide various information, which can be displayed in a variety of ways.

  • Compare how well user sales channels are performing.
  • Track customers average order value.
