@Mike_Ball, would you please consider adding to your excellent feature request the ability to set the default value via either formula or string expressions?
For instance, where you suggest that
“on …date [fields], the obvious [default value] is Today”,
such a default could be implemented by typing the following formula in the default field: today()
Additionally, by allowing a FORMULA to be entered as the fields default value, it allows users to prepopulate each record with more value scenarios which could easily account for and predict the default value for 30-90% of the time, yet still allow the user to quickly and CLEANLY override the default value.
For instance, instead of simply setting the default value of a field as Today() a business could set the expiration of a short term lease as Today()+90, but allow the two parties to adjust it to more amenable/responsive terms.
Has anyone managed to get this to work with Zapier? I tried the suggestion to filter by a kanban view but zapier does not list kanbans in the list. Searching the field for “Uncategorized” or leaving blank both don’t work.
I’m very surprised this hasn’t been implemented considering the $150 million+ raised in 2018. For single select this would be as easy as adding one of those switch toggles used in filtering (“none of” option) to flag which should be the default. What gives?
Update: I was able to set up an Integromat integration that updates all empty records (Status=’’) to the default value. It runs at 15 minute intervals in the free tier which is sufficient for my needs.
