How can the auto-approval of requests be avoided?

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" condition
  • Use "Safety catch" feature: requests will be auto-rejected rather than auto-approved if no approvers are selected in any step
