Crazy but…. Has anyone been able to change the background color of NetSuite via injection to the DOM?
Yes I know this sounds crazy but this is a business idea from the C levels. Depending on criteria they want to make it easier for Sales staff to identify what type of customer they are looking at by changing the background color of NetSuite?
Sounds almost illegal to me but I’m exhausting all my resources…. basically it requires to inject HTML, CSS and JS though the DOM which can be considered to some extent as a “hack”
Has anyone come across this type of request and will we break any contractual, legality with NetSuite?
It is possible. It is EXTREMELY likely to break your NetSuite account.
The stakeholders should be guided towards attention-grabbing data practices that are supported by the system. An example would be an Inline HTML field that shows a bit of color depending on the situation – rather than trying to change the entire record’s color.
If you do not know what NS supports or not, I’d recommend hiring a consultant for a small engagement. I’m sure there are many little things that can be addressed.
I fully agree with you. Execs and Prod Owners can sometimes be hard headed into their expectations and requirements. I explained the same thing to them and pitched the idea of just making a field value stand out with some styling and this is what I’m pushing for.
