Common questions for Netsuite

How can I create a Saved Search in NetSuite?

In the following link you can find a very useful video about how this feature works inside NetSuite: Watch the video
Also, in the following link you can find a guide on how to create Advanced Saved Searches: Watch the video

I get a message stating "[MAX_RCRDS_EXCEEDED] The maximum number ( 1000 ) of records allowed for a READ operation has been exceeded.", how can I fix this?

It is recommended to clean up Netsuite saved searches, get rid of the ones that are no longer being used and reduce the number of saved searches to fewer than 1000.
Once the number of searches is reduced, the message will disappear and you'll be able to use the integration properly.

I'm getting lead error message "Error Fetching http headers". What does it mean?

This is a casual and temporary error that LeadsBridge application encounters sometimes with Netsuite integration. It doesn't depend on LeadsBridge but it is caused by network slowness on request and response to Netsuite servers, this is due to many variables.
Anyway, LeadsBridge application has a re-sync system which tries to re-sync leads in error status with a frequency of some hours.
