  • No Switching Back: Once you complete the upgrade, you will not have the option to switch to the previous version of CloudExtend.

  • Email Address Verification: Logged in to the same account role tied to the workbook. You will be prompted to login to "CloudExtend" with your Microsoft email address. After logging into CloudExtend you will then be prompted to connect to NetSuite using the email address you normally use to login with NetSuite.

  • Read the Notification: Understand the terms and agree before continuing to upgrade.

πŸ”΅ Do I need to install something for the upgrade or it will auto upgrade?

  • You would have to install the new CloudExtend Excel for NetSuite app from the Microsoft App Store and Sign in with your Microsoft Account in the new app to see all your existing reports after Upgrade.

πŸ”΅ By when will I have the option to stay on the standalone version of CEAN?

  • Till Mid May. We would force all users to upgrade in the week of on 20th May.

πŸ”΅ What is new in this Upgrade?

  • Support for multiple connections, Support for Login with Google, unified login and connection for both data management and Analytics, renaming connections. Learn more about it here.

πŸ”΅ I want to use Google login in the new app. Will my reports be migrated to the Google id or Microsoft?

  • During upgrade you will be asked to sign in with Microsoft account again so your reports would be migrated to the new version against the Microsoft id. If you want to use Google account going forward, please contact CloudExtend Support. We will guide you through the process.

πŸ”΅ If I missed to include few reports during Upgrade, how can I access them again in the new app?

So you can review the workbooks from there and then recreate the ones you want in the new version.
