:extract with Regex
This is an advanced feature that lets you extract entries from a text using a regex. For instance, if the regex is ‘@\S+’ and the text is ‘@one_name and @another_name’, this will return a list of texts, @one_name, @another_name.

Hey can someone break down what this means? Newbie here

You can use a “regular expression” to extract values from a text. In the example, it’s looking for text that comes attached to an @ symbol, and will give you a list of all of those in a given piece of text. The documentation is letting you know that the feature will return the strings in a list format.
