Reading Time: 2 minutes


The ability to add a custom field to forms in NetSuite is a great feature that allows you to change the view of your system to adapt to your company’s environment. When adding custom fields, we typically need to update that change on all the forms the field appears in, so here is a simple way to rename the custom fields in NetSuite on all the forms.

    1. In the Label field, you can edit the name to what you would prefer. For example, if we want to rename this Sales Engineer field to Sales Coordinator, we can just edit the field and then change the Label.
