Default Values Request

It would be great if you could make the default values also work for API created records. Maybe optionally for backwards compatibility.

Completely agree with this. Just spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what I was doing wrong with the API, only to discover that default values aren’t applied when I create a record using the API. For now, I have to manually set the values when I make that request, but this is likely going to lead to errors if I ever add any new fields to the table. I will need to remember that they also have to be initialized.

Definitely needed.
I got here after a google search about this problem.

This is an absurd behaviour. I don’t see the point of having a default value if it is not set using both the api and manual addition in UI. Really hope they fix it

Yeah, but at least there’s a workaround now with automations…
