Why are items I am supposed to approve automatically approved by the system?

To prevent delays in the approval process, the system may automatically approve timesheets, time off bookings, or expense sheets. When this occurs, <System> is added in the approval details.
The system will automatically approve the item if:
For example, a user submits a timesheet that uses a Supervisor –> Project Leader approval path, and one of the projects on the timesheet has not been set up with a project leader. After the supervisor has approved the user's timesheet, Replicon will automatically approve the timesheet and thereby complete the approval process.
This means that, if a timesheet is approved by a first approver and then rejected by a second, and the timesheet's owner modifies only comments and then resubmits, the timesheet will be system approved instead of needing re-approval from the first approver.
In this situation, the system will approve all items destined for that approver that were submitted prior to their start date.
