Automatically Changing Field A Based on Field B

Last updated: Jan 18, 2023
Is the current/best way to change field A based on field B (with live updates) still to use a listener on the field and then a patch or mutation?

What kind of change do you mean? You can use the
keys. Or are you looking at doing something more complicated?

For example, when field A is set to "title", set field B to "title something else"

If you want it to automatically change, then you will still want to use a listener and a patch. Otherwise, you can do something like a document action that updates the value of B when the document is published.

Well, they'd want to be able to change it, so yeah, a listener. It's tricky because we need to fill if empty, otherwise, don't change it. In our situation, it's
tag vs. "page title" in
. The use case is that it's almost always the same, but not always, but it's a pain for them to enter twice, so...thanks again,
