Hide or Customize the Activities Tab in NetSuite

It happens quite often that our customers wants to Hide the Activities tab from the main menu or  enter there own content in the Activities tab.

Both cases can be handled by creating a copy of the Activity tab and link the copy to the center on which the role is based. You can then choose to customize the tab or hide it for the role.
