Updated this week

CloudExtend Analytics is being upgraded and release highlights are below.

How to prepare for the upgrade?

Target date

The upgrade will roll out in phased approaches to customers beginning on April 30, 2024. Once your account is targeted for the upgrade you will see a screen prompting you to upgrade.

The upgrade will require users to complete two steps:

  1. Click a button to migrate all their reports to the new app (this only takes a few seconds)

  2. Install the newest version of CloudExtend Excel for NetSuite from Microsoft AppSource.

    • A link to the upgraded application is here.

    • Note that the name of the upgraded application in AppSource is currently CloudExtend Excel Data Management for NetSuite. This upgraded application will now also enable users to access all Analytics features they currently license through a single interface.


About this upgrade

With CloudExtend Excel Analytics for NetSuite users can export NetSuite saved searches in Excel on-demand or on a schedule, and then use that data inside of NetSuite for reporting, even connecting to Power BI or Power Query.

The latest version of CloudExtend Excel for NetSuite will incorporate the merging of CloudExtend Excel Data Management allowing users to easily switch between applications if they have a license for both apps.
