Setting Preferences for Reports
NetSuite provides both user-level and company-level preferences that can be set to tailor your NetSuite accounts to your specific business needs. Some of these preferences affect reports.
User-level preferences are available at Home > Set Preferences. The preferences you set on this page are unique to your currently logged in role, and do not affect other users or other roles to which you have access.
User preferences for reports are available on the Set Preferences page's Analytics tab. For information, see Reporting Preferences on the Set Preferences Page.
Company-level preferences are available from the Setup tab. These preferences apply to the whole NetSuite account and cannot be overridden by individual users. Setting company preferences requires setup permissions; usually administrators set these preferences.
Many Setup tab menu links have sublinks for preferences, for example, Setup > Company > Preferences > General Preferences. The company preferences that apply to Reporting are available at Setup > Accounting > Preferences > Accounting Preferences. For information, see Reporting Preferences on the Accounting Preferences Page.
The options available in report results page footers act like preferences for individual reports. For information about setting these options, see Setting Report Footer Options.
Reports respect time zone preferences set at Setup > Company > Preferences > General Preferences or Home > Set Preferences > General when calculating report date fields that include timestamps. Report results for these fields are based on company or user time zone, rather than system time zone.
