Thank you this is great open source software :-)
Testing latest release (docker 3.01) there is a few things I can't figure
out:
1) How to select a specific user or group in a workflow to approve a
certain state and how to get him/she notified
2) how to mass approve documents in a workflow and
3) how to write an index filter which can convert metadata to numerical
representations for computation (they are all strings) - do I have to
register a custom django filter ?

Hello again
I wonder if anybody can help - is there a documentation for this or do I
need to pay for support (which I'm willing to ) :-)

Thanks!

1- The way notifications work in Mayan is via subscription to events. The
user must be subscribed to the document's events to receive notification
about changes to a document. We've discussed the possible implementation of
a "workflow inbox" to received a list of pending workflows to attend by
assignment. If we finish the specifications of this we might start working
on it soon.
2- At the moment this is not possible. If we implement the workflow inbox
feature, the it will possible to add a multi select as it is done in the
document list view for example.
3- I'm not sure I understand the question. Can you expand on it?

The issue tracking the Workflow assignment/inbox
feature: https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/issues/471

The decision blocking implementation is if whether to allow assigment to an
user, group or role. Also should this assignment be "free for all" meaning
any user in the system or to a restricted list defined somehwere else like
in the workflow definition itself. We need to come up with a solution that
works for 95% of cases and not just for document approval type workflows.
This is the main point we are trying to define to start working on this
feature, everything we've figured out.
