Simply the ability to set a default on fields other than numeric
On a date, the obvious is Today
On a string, just set a default value
yes I came to the same workout for Project Management application. However since the field is calculated there are some limitations when the records are grouped by this and you want to add another record with the same grouped parameters.
Was very surprised to find this was not already a feature
This seems like a very heavily requested feature for a very long time now. I also would really like to able to set defaults on other field types!
Any update on this?
It’s 2020 why are still asking for this?
This seems like extremely basic functionality that many, many people have been asking for for years — why isn’t this prioritized over something like Pexels integration that no one was asking for?
+1 on this. Would be great to have the ability to set the default selection for the single-select field, and also have default text for the single line text, and long text fields.
Having asked the original question nearly 4 years ago I am staggered this hasn’t been addressed. It seems such a simple fix but gets overlooked by major (but questionable) new functionality. Worries me about Airtable as a commercial enterprise solution as it feels like the developers are prioritising things they think are “cool” over the market needs.
Lol, well the Pexels block was actually created by Pexels themselves, not Airtable.
And +1 on this feature request for field defaults! :slightly_smiling_face:
Adding default number is not working - it doesn’t pre-fill the cells
In case there is a need for some kind of minimum users requesting this feature.
+1 for default fields, specially for single select))
