Hello guys , 

I was wondering if its possible to change a workflow state for an example from open to draft based on a selection from the field below :

'contract_usage': fields.selection([('Rental', 'Rental'), ('Standard', 'Standard')], 'Type of Contract', size=10),

so far done this so far :

    def activate_draft(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
           workflow_obj = self.pool.get('account.analytic.account')
        val = workflow_obj.browse(cr,uid,ids, context=context)
        if(val.contract_usage == "Rental"):
                 self.write(cr, uid , ids, {'state':'new'})
                return True
                self.write(cr, uid , ids, {'state':'open'})
                return True

do i need to put something in the xml to actually activate the function ?
