Field default value was created by timstohr
Hi Kyle.
I have fields which are basically my access level control (eg give Employee the right to access CRM etc...). The fields themselves work perfectly.
I would like to set it so that if the value is left empty, then it should enter the value 2 (which is No for me).

At the same time, I want to be able to import users and set the value of the user to 1 during the import or leave it blank .

Lets make it easier. I want the field to have either value 1 or value 2. If no value inputted, then it should be value 2...

Field default only applies to registrations and only if the field is displayed on registration. There isn't a way to set a default outside that scenario. For profile edit I recommend just marking the field as required so they have to select a value. To ensure some sort of default you'd need to use CB Auto Actions and a Field action, but where you enforce it would be up to you (e.g. could be after registration if you don't want the field displayed on registration). As for imports you should be able to just specify the value in your CSV import file.
