    Can I set a default value in the Drop Down field?

    Asked by FreedomSolar on November 04, 2016 at 11:18 AM

    Would it be possible to auto-populate a state dropdown question with Texas by default or have it appear after the user presses "T"?

    Unfortunately, you can't set default value in the US State Picker widget. However, you can use the Drop Down tool and set a default value. Here's how:

    1. Insert a Drop Down field in the form. Click the "Special" button at the toolbar and then select "US States".

    2. Click the "Selected" button and then choose "Texas".

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
