Expense Claim Workflow with option to skip HR

I have a question about creating a basic workflow for expense claim.

First HR approves if the person can able to get any salary advance then the expense approver see the HR approval and take his decision.

This works perfectly for salary advance scenario. However, work advances do not require any HR action.

Expense approver is able to directly approve the request however, it stays submitted and show s"Draft" which is confusing.

What must be done if expense approver directly approve any request directly and change the status to approved?

Thank You

Workflow looks like this


This isn’t clear to me. Can you share more screenshots with the flow.
