NetSuite Addin Guide

This page will guide you through configuration and basic use of the Level365 CRM Connect NetSuite Add-in. It is expected that you are already familiar with the Address Book, Call History and Preview window, and the basic concepts of integration and screen popping using the Add-ins.

NetSuite and the database used to store your contact data should already be installed and working normally before proceeding with this integration.

Level365 CRM Connect must also be installed already with the initial configuration completed.

Information You'll Need

  • Windows account username and password
  • NetSuite account number*, login email and password (if password protected)

*Instructions on where to find this information are given below if required.

Locating your NetSuite account

Alternatively, you can use the Token-based authentication to configure the NetSuite integration. 

To configure it this way, you will need to enter your Consumer Key and Secret, and your Token and Secret.

To retrieve these, see Finding your Consumer Key.




Finding your Consumer Key

1. Enable the SuiteCloud Token-Based Authentication feature in Company Setup by browsing to Set-up > Company > Enable Features > SuiteCloud.


2. Create an Integration Record with the Token-Based Authentication enabled. Make note of the Consumer Key and Secret that is generated. This is achieved by browsing to Set-up > Integration > Manage Integrations.


3. If you do not already have a role set up that includes the following permissions, you will need to create one:

  • User Access Token
  • Access Token Management
  • Log in using Access Tokens
  • Web Services.

To create one, browse to Set-up > Users/Roles > Manage Roles > Create New > Permissions>Setup.


4. Assign the role made in Step 3 to a user. Set-up > Users/Roles > Manage Users > Edit a User > Access > Add Role


5. Create a new Access Token for the integration (from step 2) and User (from step 4). Note the token and secret that is generated. (Set-up > Users/Roles > Access Tokens). Make note of the Token ID and Secret created. 


Paste the Consumer Key, Secret and the Token ID into the Level365 CRM Connect Configuration screen.

In the 'Entities' section, select the NetSuite account contact types you want to be used by checking the corresponding boxes.

Click the Save button to store the information you've entered and apply the configuration.

Activity Logging

This option allows you to attach details of the call with the associated contact, either manually or automatically.

Under the heading 'Data Connection', check the box 'Create activity on call end' to automatically log the call activity to the contact in NetSuite or, to manually log the call activity, check the box 'Show activities on Call' Window. When the caller's number is recognized within NetSuite, this will present an additional button within the Level365 CRM Connect program call preview window. Pressing this button will open an activity / note taking window in NetSuite, pre-populated with important call details.

It is advisable to only select one of the two options.

The above activity logging features may not yet be available in your version of the Level365 CRM Connect application.

The contact needs to have a company associated with it to create the call activity.

Click the Save button to store the information you've entered and apply the configuration.


To test if the configuration worked, enter a phone number from your NetSuite account into the 'Telephone' box in the 'Integration test' area and click the Search button. The results will be displayed after a few seconds.

If the test does not work, go to the 'Log' page of configuration and see if there are any errors in the log.
