Hi,

If I have a column with the field type “URI” it doesn’t actually check that the inputted data is a valid URL. Is there a way for me to define a custom field type with the API/Apps. The ideal situation would be a custom field type that is validated by Regex.

Thanks in advance (:

Welcome to the Airtable community. You cannot create new field types. However, your app can do validation on data in an existing field and take action if the data doesn’t match you pattern.
