In SAP CRM 2007, you can show different user interfaces for a user, depending on the user’s partner function within a transaction. The new user interface makes this possible with minimal development. Find out the four steps to set up this functionality within an opportunity.
In opportunity planning, as well as other SAP CRM areas, you may need to restrict access to certain transactions. You can use Access Control Engine (ACE) to set up these restrictions on an object level (e.g., an opportunity planning transaction).
Furthermore, you may have to restrict what users can see within the transaction, depending on the role they have in relation to the transaction. I’ll describe the four steps you need to take to set up this functionality in SAP CRM 2007.
Step 1. Create the object type and subtype
Step 2. Add the partner functions to the business object layer (BOL)
Step 3. Configure the assignment block area
Step 4. Configure the sales team area
After you set this up, you have different views on an opportunity, depending on which role the logged-on user has in the opportunity.
