Configuration of Expense Property Settings
Step 5: Configure Properties 4: Navigate to Admin > Properties > Approval Process > Approvals and configure properties to Ignore Zero Approvers for Requests by navigating to Admin > Properties > Expenses > Approvals/Reviews.
Step 6: Check both the ‘Enable 5: Under both Enable Dynamic Approval Sequence For Expense Requests’ and also and Skip Zero Approver check the ‘Skip Zero Approver For Expense Requests’ options to TRUE (checked)"Expense Request" option.
