Hi all,

I know that I can set a default value for a checkbox.

How would I use the first value in a list field (radio buttons or pull down) as the default value each time a new record is created in a multi-record editor.

Thanks,

Hi,

Currently, CMS Builder doesn't support default values for dropdown lists. You can make it a required field to ensure that the field is not left blank however.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Since this isn't currently supported by CMS Builder, the easiest workaround would be to have a checkbox called Pendering Moderation with a default value set to checked. You can then set it to be Admin only so that it can't be overridden.

Hope this helps.

Good thinking Jason! I'll see how that might be worked into the flow of site management.

Thanks,
