Condition statement to bypass Approval

The process is to dynamically pull approver from SharePoint list, and start the Approval process.  There are also two other approvers that always will have the process sent to them.  How do I bypass the dynamic approvers if they are not needed?  I had a false expression that worked and lost it.


Example:  Director sends form for approval.  Process sends it to Program Director chosen dynamically from SharePoint list.  HR and Executive Director always receives an approval also.  If the process only needs HR and Executive Director approval it needs to skip Program Director Process.

You may need to save the approvers in a SP list and set up flags for the scenarios where they will be needed, also you can combine that with Switch control and configure different cases.

I have an approvers list that is dynamically pulled for "Program Director Approval"  The other two approvals are to always run.
