Printing Journal Entries in NetSuite 2017.2

NetSuite continues to add functionality and depth to their user experience with the 2017.2 update. Controllers, Accountants, and Auditors will finally be able to print a Journal Entry after it is created to retain outside-the-system documentation of Journal Entries in printed or electronic PDF form.

Additionally, users can now customize the template for printing these Journal Entries to include classification information like Department, Class, Location, or custom segments. Any additional custom fields you may have added to your Journal Entry transaction screen can also be included in the printed version.

To Enable Printing of Journal Entries

First, the Advanced PDF/HTML Templates feature must be enabled.  To enable this feature, go to Setup > Company > Enable Features > SuiteCloud under SuiteBuilder check the box for Advanced PDF/HTML Templates.
