Glad to know you're interested in the beta. Everything you need to get started is here.
Before you start installing the beta
Please ask your Admin to contact your Customer Success Manager or email email@example.com with the subject line "CloudExtend Gmail Beta" and include a note with your company name and your NetSuite account number (see Step 1 below)
Once you do that, the CloudExtend deployment team will enable the installation of the beta in the requested accounts and inform you when it's ready for installation via email.
A few notes about performance and feature parity
The first time a user invokes a search on the App it may take 5-10 seconds for the results to appear. Subsequent searches should yield results in just a second or two.
We've added the most commonly used features to the beta first and will be adding other features as the beta progresses.
At present the following production features are not yet available or are different in the beta App.
Celigo Send Button (invoking the Celigo Send button during compose mode will invoke the older Gmail extension). Until this is addressed users wishing to add an email they have 'composed' will need to do so from their Sent Items folder (open the email in your sent items folder and then add it to your desired records).
Navigating to a NetSuite record from within the app is not yet possible.
Creating and editing NetSuite records from with the App is not yet possible.
The Send From Gmail button (in NetSuite) will only work with the production extension
Record types available for attaching emails are currently limited to those on this list (from our Outlook integration).
Inline images sync as attachments
Emails will no longer be stored on the Gmail sub-tab or as custom records. All emails will be stored on the native messages tab in NetSuite. Attachments will also be included as part of the email on the native messages tab giving the user full visibility as to where the attachments came from. Users will be able to differentiate between native NetSuite emails as well as emails manually attached by CloudExtend users and also those attached by CloudExtend Autopilot. This is handled by the externalID field. See this support article on how to customize NetSuite to differentiate between emails attached natively by NetSuite and those by CloudExtend. You can even differentiate between emails manually attached or attached via Autopilot.
Using the App Side by Side with Production
It is technically possible to use the beta app along with the production app. We would recommend this only for users that need the app for creating and editing NetSuite records. For most users we encourage you to turn off the production app (navigate to your extensions and click the slider next to the App to disable it).
