Getting data from our app back into flow builder?

Hey everyone! We have an app in the Flow Builder, and what it does is it processes data from a new order (for example) and then it needs to return some data back into Flow Builder, that the user can use in next actions, like a variable they can reference. Is this possible?

Currently Flow actions do not support return data, but we want to enable that in 2023. You could technically do it by creating a trigger that is fired when with that return data, but that would impact the usability of your tasks.
