There are different ways of avoiding the auto-approval of documents:
- First, try to make sure that all cases are covered in the approval matrix, so that at least one approver is selected
- Use Default Approver: if
nobody is selected as Approver in a particular step according to the workflow
rules, then the previously defined Default Approver will be added
- Add a fallback step in the very beginning / at the very end with an "Always approves"
- Use "Safety catch" feature: requests will be auto-rejected rather than auto-approved if no approvers are selected in any step
