I have a group of merchandise provider users that have to be selected before moving forward to the next step in my process. After I selected the desired providers users and submit a quote request, the process should send an email and assign a task (create new quote form) to be completed by N number of merchandise provider users. How should I setup my process model nodes in order to send email notifications to this selected providers and assign tasks to be done in a sub-proccess to create new quotes?
This is how my process model looks like:

As per my understating ,in first form you will select multiple users ,for that users you need to send email and then you need to assign a task(which is your new quote sub process ) to those users ?
please correct me if i am wrong
Yes, that's correct
1) Collecting users list : your first form you are selecting multiple users,save that user in rule input where type user(list) and save that value in process variable (pv),so your pv!users will have users list .
2) Send Email to Users : In send email smart service ,you need to specify "To" ,in that give you list of users like pv!users .
3) Assigning a task to users which is in sub process
multiple node instances(MNI) : In sub process node select others tab in that tab you can configure mni
Select check box "Automatically run multiple instances of this node " and select radio button "Run one instance for each item in " for this radio button you will see a drop down their you need to select your list (pv!users).
And select "Move on when:" option as "All instances are done"
So for this sub process parameter is single user right ,you need to pass like pv!users[tp!instanceindex]
