Navigating NetSuite

This section introduces you to the elements of the NetSuite user interface (UI). It includes topics for common UI elements and tools.

The UI uses progressive disclosure. This means that the pages focus on your content. When you move your pointer over areas of a page, the links, menus, and icons that are appropriate for that area appear. If you do not see a link or button you expect, move your pointer around the area and see what appears.

Best practice is to always use the NetSuite Back button for navigation, rather than your browser Back button. If you use the browser Back button, you may create duplicate entries.

Instructions for common UI elements and tools are included in the following help topics:

If you are using NetSuite on a mobile device, see NetSuite for Mobile Overview.
