Pulling tasks in wf and auto assigning tasks [SOLVED]

Hi All,

I have a workflow, aspects etc all setup which works fine but have two questions which are related:

1) How do I automatically assign changes in workflow state to users?  I.e. if I have a user "artist1234" they work the job and then I want it to pass automatically to "reader5678".  when the artist hits "Pass to Reader".  Also I would like to do this based on the reader with the least amount of work.  I.e. I do not want the artist to select someone by hand, the system needs to do this for them.

2) When a user with a specific roll (reader or artist for example) want a task they press "Give me a task" button.  This then passes them the highest priority/oldest task to work. This would move the task from a "Wating for Artist" state to a "Artist Creating" and then mocing it to a "Waiting for Reader" state.

Question 2) is essentially the more important and more likely scenario for me.

Many thanks in advance.

Jim
