Default values

If you have a value in mind for the field, you can have the field automatically populate that value for the user. The user can then chose to change the default value before submitting the form.

  • To set a default value for a field, click on the field. The field's settings will appear to the left side of the builder canvas. Type in the default value.‚Äč
  • The default value for a field can also be a calculation in order to change the default value based on values of other fields on the form. Click the lightening bolt icon in the default value textbox to open the calculation editor.
