Trigger a flow 2 times or set a Global Flow Variable

To shave 1-2 seconds printing I came out with an Idea and I wonder if this is possible.

 

I am currently printing a HTML document when the task is done. It's a normal Powerapps trigger that create a file on a Onedrive folder that get picked up by a script and printed out. That takes about 9-10 seconds for the process to complete. Shaving 2 seconds would really help in the environement this is produce. So I thought about creating the HTML when it's submitted instead of when the task is done. The item that gets dumped in the HTML does not change between being submitted and task completion. 

 

So want I thought I could do is dump the HTML file on Onedrive on submittion, wait there until task is completed, and when it's completed, move the file to another folder to get picked up and print. 

 

As far as I can see I cannot have two Powerapps trigger in one Flow. And I cannot seem to be able to create a global Flow variable that would picked up the file and put it in another Flow.

 

Any of you have an idea if this could be done?
