The Custom Segments feature lets you create custom classification fields similar to class and department. You can create an unlimited number of custom segments, define possible values for each segment, and add the segments to specific record types. People working in NetSuite can then use the segments to classify records appropriately.
You can configure segments to display on the GL Impact page. Also, standard NetSuite reports can be customized to use custom segments as filters and columns. In financial reports, custom segments can be added as a horizontal dimension. The functionality of custom segments enhances your ability to categorize data and meet your organization’s unique reporting and analysis needs.
To enable custom segments, go to Setup > Company > Enable Features. On the SuiteCloud subtab, check the Custom Segments box, and then click Save.
To create a custom segment record, see Creating a Custom Segment.
