This isn’t possible, but you can create a command that asks the user 
for a string and then proceeds to use that string, possibly inserting 
text (or a snippet) derived from the string.

Another option I have seen is to insert a snippet with something like:


Then assigning `tab-trigger-for-next-action` as tab trigger for part 2 
of your workflow, would allow you to “continue” by pressing tab 
twice, after entering the text in the placeholder.
