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
It would be especially useful to set a default value for a Single Select field.
Add my company’s interest for this feature
+1 for a single select field default.
It would make the kanban view more usable instead of having everything show up under an “Uncategorized” column which isn’t helpful. By convention, the first column in a kanban flow should always be some categorized first step, so it’s really redundant to have to manually categorize every item we add to be that first step.
How can such a basic, important feature not been implemented in over 5 years?
I started this and find it bizarre it’s not addressed. I’ve moved on from Airtable for exactly this kind of reason. Gannt chart views rather than something so fundamental??? Lost sight of what they were supposed to be and what they did well, Better tools out there now which is a real shame
Can I ask what you’ve moved too ?
If I have a row with 30 columns/fields, and I need to create a new row, instead of having all of those values “ready for me” I have to manually select all 30 values (at a maximum). It becomes tedious. Default values would fix this tedium.
Wow, this is still not resolved? That’s a disapointment.
Seems like a must for a database kind of application
You can do default values with automations.
