There are no errors, the document(s) are simply not approved by the person that is expected to be able to approve them:

NOTE:   In this scenario, the users that are approving are not manually entering any forward to person.  They are only trying to approve the document.   

Steps To Reproduce
1. User creates PO or Requisitions (or Approves the same from a Notification sent to them)
2. The document(s) are routed to next approver instead of approving directly


1. Expected final Approver approves from a notification and instead of the documented getting approved it is sent back to original status (Incomplete or Requires Reapproval) OR it is send incorrectly to next level of approval
