Modifying Data Type property value after records import.

Hi everyone, I'm kinda new to Pega 7.2 so any help is greatly appreciated.

I wanted to apply something similar to the "Edit Input" modification on a Data Type property, where it changes the value shown in the record depending on the value of a column. It has to be automatically done as soon as the data is imported from a CSV. I've been searching for a way to do this without using an activity with no success, since "Edit Input" was the first solution that came to my mind but it only does it after an HTTP Request.

Another approach I tried was creating a "pyDefault" Data Transform for the data class I'm using, so that after I import the CSV it would automatically use it as soon as the class is instantiated... but it didn't worked in that way, so I'm not sure if there's a better approach I should take to this or if I did something wrong with implementing this solution.

Thanks in advance!
