Filter certain characters out of a Forms answer

Hello,

I made a form for my teachers to submit tasks, and Power Automate will upload files to SharePoint and create a Planner task.

However, the flow fails sometimes because the teachers put one of the following characters in the title of the task, and SharePoint can't create a folder.  / \ : * ? " < > |
(My flow puts the title of the task in the folder name)

Is it possible to initialize a variable, which will be the forms answer but these characters are filtered out, so SharePoint can create a folder?

I'm not further than this currently (the condition, if the answer contains one of these characters) xDhelp_pls.PNG

 

Thanks in Advance 🙂
