Account Lifecycle/ BP Role and Replication to ECC
I am seeking advise on the best approach to implement the following scenario in SAP CRM 2007:
We want different screens depending on customer "status" (eg. roles: prospect, customer, ship-to). We also want that only business partners who are not prospects are replicated to ECC.
I know that with the new WEB UI, i can control the screen (fields etc.) by the account lifecycle and I know that replication is normally controlled by BP role, however this means that the user have to change both the role and the account lifecycle stage when a prospect becomes a customer, which I do not like....
Is there a way to change the role when I change the lifecycle stage automatically?
Or is there a whole other approach to solve my scenario?
Any advise is appreciated.
Best regards, Mia

The first question I have to discuss with development.
For the 2nd question there is a note available. It's not that you have the Role as a View-Control, but you can define views dependent on different attributes.
