Wrong statement concerning "change document type" in Post 'Workflow Concepts Introduction by rssfed23'

Post by develissimo »

Hi folks,

on 13th.January.2020 user and Global Moderator @rssfed23 wrote in his tutorial about *Workflow terminology*:
When the metadata value of "Paid" is added to any document of the type "Pending Invoice", change the document type to "Paid Invoice", add a tag with the value of "Paid" and add today's date to the Documents metadata with a metadata label "Date Invoice Paid"

Some months before this post core developer rosarior wrote here Link: viewtopic.php?t=948, about 'Workflow to change document type' that this is work in progress.

Today 26th.Dec.2020 I tried with Mayan-EDMS Version 3.5.4 (docker-Image) to produce a scenario explained by rssfed23 in his mentioned post.
For test and Mayan-EDMS evaluation purposes I tried to achieve to change document type in an action during workflow state change.
This should be possible to achieve with Mayan-EDMS Workflow.

But after my today's trial and error, I could not succeed changing document type in a workflow.
Is this still a missing feature?
Did I interpret rssfed23's post wrong?
Or is the given information missleading/wrong?

Thanks for clarification.

Kind regards,
Raphael
