Editing the form leading to approval

I designed a form. At the end of the form, approval is sent to my manager with the button and then it is written to sharepoint if it is approved. I have a question here. Can my manager edit the form at the same time when approval is received?

Hi @mtndnmz ,

 

It is doable, however, you need to clarify the logic first, since the auto saving to SharePoint will cause conflict against manually editing of managers. So basically we may create two screens, one for managers and the other for common users. Users will save the item to SharePoint with status Pending, after approval status change to Approved. In addition, attach the item link in Approval Emails and managers will be able to open the specific item use the link, edit the item and save manually without approvals. The link need to include the item link as well as item ID, which is called deep link:

Hope this helps.
