Do you mean that, you want a task to run between your search form and your results page?

Like, upon searching, before it shows the results a search, it will run a task first?

For this case, I suggest that you use a triggered action instead. Then, follow the procedure stated here:  https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/tech-parameters/how-to-separate-search-page-and-results-page-into-two-different-webpages/

additional notes for the procedure:

*create a dummy table and use that for the makeshift search form(submission form)
*apply the triggered action on this dummy table
*make sure that the triggered action is designed similary to the task

basically, what will occur is, we will create a triggered action that run on "Insert" for the dummy table which we use as the table data source for the makeshift search form. Therefore, every search will activate the trigger.

well... that the idea, depending on how fast the process of your trigger is or how long before the makeshift submission form redirect to results page, you may have to refresh the page first to get the proper results.
