    I'm using below as a widget in Jotform.  I'd like to have a default AM/PM for each day.  Is it possible to do that?  It is laborious to have users input 4 pieces of data (time and then AM/PM) for each day of the week and I am trying to speed the process up.   If not, any suggestions you recommend?

    I understand that in your form you have used this input table field.

    Please note that currently, you've set up all columns as dropdowns.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to set default values in dropdown fields in the Input table. As a workaround, you can use this app to generate pre-populated form URL:

    If you want to have a default AM and PM for each day, you will need an additional set of rows for each day and change the AM/PM column to a text box field as shown below:

    Then using conditions pass on value to the AM/PM text box fields as shown below. I've used a trigger field as the "restaurant name" as it is a required field:
