Autolaunch Flow To Update Lookup Field

Hi guys,

I'm looking to build an Autolaunch Flow which will update a lookup field in the OpportunityLineItemsSchedule object when a field has been update on another object.
I have created a custom object Pronto__c which is a placeholder for inbound data from an external database. I have a custom field on this object called LineItemScheduleId__c. The data coming from the external database also includes the recordId of the OpportunityLineItemSchedule record. Once the LineItemScheduleId__c is updated I want the Pronto__c record to link the the correct OpportunityLineItemSchedule record.
Can anyone guide me with the correct steps I need to take to get this to work using Flow and Process Builder?

Guys I'm still stuck on this. All of the resources that I am finding only display how I can either create a child record or update a lookup field where a junction object exists between both objects.
The fact that I am working with OpportunityLineItemSchedule is restricting me from referencing it in the process builder. 
I need to be able to update the custom lookup field on the OpportunityLineItemSchedule with the Pronto__c record, when the Pronto record has either been created or updated. The OpportunityLineItemScheduleId will be on the Pronto record as a text field.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am running out of steam on this one.
