Thank you for this clarification. I wanted to check whether I am missing something.
There were a lot of discussions in the past about how the workflow should work and who should be able to skip it. There are some cases in which even if you are the approver going through all the steps of the workflow is important. I understand that not all the cases are like this so we should definitely think of a solution with our UX team.
