Change the approval status when the user edits the form

I have a flow, when the approval is rejected, the user can edit and the approval status changes to a new Approval, is that Possible to do?

What is the user editing to trigger the initial approval? Once an approval is decided either approved or not, it's done. It won't revaluate itself if the value that was approved changes post-approval. You have to have the smarts on the source object to know if the value is changed (like a sharepoint list item created/modified) to resend an approval. 


One alternative would be where if the approval action is rejected you can have subsequent steps under the approval action that will information the user the request was not approved and tell them to fix it. Then you can delay for x (1 minute,1 hour, 1 day, etc...) amount of time,  then recheck the submitted value and resend another approval or if you have some method of knowing if it should be auto-approved you could do that as well. 


But really setting up your job to run when a value is updated or created is the best approach
