I was at the SuiteWorld Ask and Expert questions session and someone wanted to now how to find out about what permissions grant what function in Netsuite. I knew I had a spreadsheet with all the functions on it, but had a little trouble tracking it down.

Hopefully this will make your managing user roles easier, and also make it simpler to take people off roles that give them too much permission.
