At the bottom of the header is a navigation bar. The bar is made up of tabs labeled to represent the information that it links to. The tabs that are available depend on your user role. Here is an example of the navigation menu bar.
Notice the ellipsis at the right end of the menu bar. It appears when the page is too narrow to display the full menu. The ellipsis means that more menus are available. When you hover over the ellipsis, the additional menus drop down so that you can access them without scrolling.
All of the tabs expand automatically to become navigation menus when you move your pointer over them. Navigation menus often have multiple levels. Hover over a menu to display submenus, and click a menu option to select it. For example, hovering over the Transactions tab displays the Transactions menu. In the following screenshot, the pointer has followed the Transactions menu to the Bank submenu and then to Make Deposits and is hovering over Search.
When you select a menu option, the tab remains highlighted to show you the context of the page you are on.
Three of the tabs on the navigation bar use icons instead of words. These are:
Recent Records – NetSuite remembers the records you have viewed recently. Click this icon to open a dropdown menu of recent records. For more information, see Using the Recent Records Menu.
Shortcuts – When you click this icon, you open the shortcuts menu. It contains links to your most frequently used records, transactions, lists, or reports. These shortcuts also appear in the Shortcuts Portlet. Often an administrator has set these up for you. For more information, see Shortcuts Portlet.
Home – Click this icon to go to your home dashboard page. When you hover over it, its menu includes a link to the Set Preferences page. For more information, see Dashboards.
Your personal settings and preferences are accessible from the Settings portlet on your Home page dashboard rather than from a menu. For more information, see Settings Portlet.
