If Feature_Description_c contains 'text' then the folllowing alert or message: 'To complete request, click on Submit for Approval button display in the Approval History section on the detail page  ( wihich will appear to the user in the UI (on the edit page layout).

Workflows only fire on save.

 

The other would be a validation rule, but they only prevent saves if requirements are not met.

 

However I thought there was something in the approval process that would mandate it to be submitted if certain requirements were meet on the record.

Yes, go ahead and create the approval process and you can set criteria to have it automatically go into the approval process if field X = blank or a specific text.
