Setting Search Box Default Value with Entries not in the List (Get data from URL)

HI All~!

Does anyone know how to set Default Value for Search Box as TEXT that is obtained via “Get data from Page URL”?

I can’t seem to set it as TEXT even though I have checked the box for “Allow entries not in list when typing”

USE CASE for the search box is,

STEP 1 to allow users to either:

  1. Type in keywords for book title that may not be in my database; OR
  2. As when they are typing, the searchbox dropdown will be used as keywords suggestion for book title.

STEP 2 Pass the typed text or value in the searchbox to Algolia search

I prefer not to use Algolia search for keywords suggestion because it is not economically viable, as every keystroke will be counted as an Algolia search operation.

REASON for setting Default Value for Search Box as TEXT that is obtained via “Get data from Page URL” is so that when users revisit the bookmarked URL , the searchbox will by default shows the Keywords.

A close example would be like searching Books on Amazon.com
