[EP-tech] Adding more stages to approval workflow?



Hi all,

I just realized, that I might have taken a wrong turn with this 
approach. The states still work fine, but: I think I would have needed 
more states or levels in the review-area. I thought that I could use 
subjects or divisions to configure this, but that still just leaves one 
level of review between the editing and the archive. So what I need is 
something like:

Editing (User)
|
v
Review 1 (Editor with role x)
|
v
Review 2 (Editor with role y)
...
...
Review z (Editor with role z)
|
v
Archive

Might this package be of help https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fbazaar.eprints.org%2F495%2F&data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cb294f5964b50404c731908d71508e29b%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&sdata=%2FGSi27CVf6BOYz9SAvae41piHj5jBHqPZKK%2B%2FQo2RBg%3D&reserved=0 or which 
approach should I use (if it is possible). Or should the states that I 
have added by now still be sufficient and I'm just missing how they might?

Thanks
Johannes
