I’d love to be able to define a default for LONG TEXT type fields so that I can spell out a template for my sales team to fill out prep sheets. Just a bunch of headings with colons. I am sure that I could automate this with a RECORD CREATED automation and populate the field if empty, but seems like there should be a defaults option for that field type.
Yes, I agree with you that there should be a default option for long text fields.
However, the default field option is extremely limited and should never be depended on, as explained in the thread below.
Hands-down, your #1 best bet for this is to use automations for all your default field values. It’s the only way to ensure that you’ll get default values for all new records.
Yeah, bummer! But thank you for the info!
You’re welcome! Glad I could help!
