What’s New in SAP Business ByDesign May 2015: Leads without Accounts

In this blog, we’d like to introduce you to one of things that is new or has been changed in the May 2015 version of
SAP Business ByDesign.

Of course, you can find more information in the What’s New in SAP Business ByDesign documentation, which is
available online
or as a pdf.

Today, we’re going to talk about Leads without Accounts.

From the New Business or Marketing work center, you can now create and maintain leads without an account. You can maintain the address details while creating new leads or editing existing leads. With this you can avoid creation of unnecessary account master data while creating leads.

  • Hello! How can I use the address details entered into the lean lead address fields to create a new account? This is necessary if I want to convert the lead into an opportunity…



    • Hello Ulla,

      Thanks for the feedback. We will make another round of feature enhancement for lean leads functionality where we will also consider this automatic creation of account from lean lead.

      Best regards, Mohit

  • Hi there,

    Useful feature, however I didn’t find a way to add a contact to the lead without linking it to an account. Is there a workaround to this?



    • Hi Seb,

      Yes, we have caught this as well and we will add the functionality for adding contacts to lean leads within release 1505 itself. It will either come directly when the upgrade to 1505 happens or with the next support pack after upgrade.

      Cheers! Mohit
