Model-Drive Apps How do you automate stage progress in the business process flow?

I've been working with Canvas Apps for the better part of 8 months now and love it. I recently ran through the App in a Day lab and found Model Driven Apps interesting though the documentation and available examples/use cases seem VERY sparse. It seems like a lot of features for MD Apps are being pulled in from Dynamics 365 which I have no experience in.

I work in a design and manufacturing company. I'm working on building an App that will allow our employees to submit a supplier for accounting approval and then quality control approval. So the stages aspect of the business process flow was very appealing, but it seems like theres no way to automate the progression of a record through the stages, as such users would have to hit the "Next Stage" button to send a supplier on to the next stage of its lifecycle. Does any one have suggestions on how this can be automated? Should I just stick with Canvas apps and Flow?


Thanks in advance!
