Automating the "Submit for approval" action.

Automating the "Submit for approval" action.

HI
I have a question about the lifecycle feature in the automation section.

I'm trying to automate the "submit for approval" action in the indecent template.

what I'm trying to do is creating a transition that will automate the "Submit for approval" step, but I could not do it.

Lets take the following senior:

Step1 :
when a requester submit an incident template a request will show in the admin account.
Step 2:
The admin will click on the transition to change the "status" as configured in the lifecycle. (image 1).
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 
                  Image 1. example shown the transition in the incident template.
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Step 3:
The admin have to go to Actions tab and select submit for approval" under the Approve section. (image 2).
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
                 
 Image 2 .Actions tab when the request is open
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
Step 4:
Fill up the "Submit for approval" form.

Step 5:
After receiving the approval, the Admin now can carry on with the lifecycle transients.

now what I'm asking is:
is their a way to automate step 3 and step 4 so that when I click the transition in the image 1 a "submit for approval" form will be sent automatically? ether by "lifecycle" or by "custom function" in "custom action"

thank you.
