The first step – Test and Validate the 2021.2 upgrades in your NetSuite Release Preview (Sandbox) Account

NetSuite emphasizes the need to test and validate the upgrades in the NetSuite Release Preview (Sandbox) Account to ensure that they do not interfere with any of the existing customizations, scripts, workflows, or integrations that are in place once the upgrade gets LIVE

What do Testing and Validating the 2021.2 upgrades mean? 

Simply put, we must test the new upgrades with your existing system functionality. If there are any changes, your system is going to upgrade which results in improved efficiency, productivity, and speed. 

However, it is important to note that if we do not test your system before NetSuite gets it Live, there is a chance that one of your customizations/custom work processes might run into issues in your Production account. Hence NetSuite provides Release Preview Accounts in phases to trial and test. 

Your Release Preview Accounts will be available for testing from September 2021. 


We understand you might have some questions and we are happy to provide a FREE consultation to answer them
