One approver skips the normal approval flow. All reports she approves goes to final approved.
In a typical scenario, a newly submitted report is sent to the persons direct management for approval. The first approver approves the report, and then it is routed to accounting. Once accounting approves the status is changed from "processing to approved". We have one approver (shown in Capture 1 as "[email protected]) whose direct reports skip the accounting approval step and go directly to the status "approved". I believe this approver and all her direct reports have the same settings as every other employee. Capture 2 and Capture 3 (attached) show the approval settings currently set up for the both the person who submitted the report in Capture 1- Aya and the first approver for Aya- Jaimee. Please let me know if you have any suggestions as to how we can fix this!
