Edit Input before Continuing on?

Hi Folks - I have a flow that does the following and I need your suggestions for an addition I need to make:

 

1) User populates a Microsoft Form to kickoff a Flow process

2) Flow takes the data that was populated in the form and routes for approval

3) If request is approved, kickoff next phase of Flow process 

4) Flow creates a Planner bucket along with various Planner tasks and such

 

I need to insert a step between 3 & 4 to allow the approver to edit the data submitted in the Form so that the Planner bucket and tasks in step 4 are created appropriately.

 

Is this possible?

The issue is that you'll need to store the data somewhere so that it can be edited.  One suggestion I have is to write the data to a SharePoint list.  Send the approver a link to the list item.  Include a check box in the list for the approver to check when their edits are complete.  When the box is checked, retrieve the data from the list and move on to your next step.  Finally, I would delete the list item data when the data has been written to planner.
