    Can we add default values to fields?

    Asked by blakereynoldz on May 29, 2015 at 04:32 PM

    Thank you! Can I put in predetermined answers? Ex:

    Quantity: 25

    Colors/Locations: 2


    (an answer I plug into the site.)


    I don't mind doing the work I just want to know if it can be done. We already have our pricing I just need a way to plug our pricing so whatever our customer plugs in it gives the amount that we decide)

    Depending on the actual field, this might be possible very easily, so it would be best if you could give us a link to the form that you have and let us know which fields should hold default values.

    Since most of the time this is related to TextBox, the easiest is to open the form for editing and then to click on the textbox field.

    Once you do, just select the Default Value option in the toolbar and that is it :)
