When a lead is converted to a contact with an account, I would like the lead status to remain 'New' if there is no opportunity associated with it.
The only time a lead should be in a 'Converted' status is when the lead has been converted to an opportunity.
In other words, when converting a link without specifying the optional opportunity, it should work exactly the same as if I have added a new lead to the account via the 'Create' button on the Leads subpanel.
I have tried with a simple logic hook:
// If there is no pipeline associated, the lead status should remain as 'New'
function convertAndCheckPipeline($bean, $event, $arguments)
$bean->status = 'New';
// $bean->converted = false;
This is ineffective because the status gets changed to 'Converted' later in the process.
