Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut if you’re trying to pre-fill URLs with text and want to make sure it’s readable when opened in a browser.

This replaces characters like spaces and symbols, but does not percent-encode every type of special character – Apple designed the action for URL Encoding specifically.
