Insert Post-processing Function

Insert Post-processing function can be used in agents to insert some text before our extracted field result. For example, I have this scraping agent "Extract price example" in my account. And, I want to add the domain as http://www.domain.com in the ProductCartLink field in each row to make this relative URL as full. So, I can use the built-in Insert Post-processing function here.
