Find/Replace User-Inputted Text?

Is there a way to change the text a user enters before saving it in the database? For example, on the how-to help doc about embedding YouTube videos, it says to use the /embed/ URL – but what if the user just pastes in a regular URL? Is there a way we can use regex to add /embed/ in there?

Would we currently have to hook up an endpoint to listen to a new record, modify the field, then use the Adalo API to update that record?

@konreu a combination of custom actions and conditional actions might do what you’re looking for
