Default values

Previous Next

A domain may have a default value. This is the value that is used whenever a user does not take specific action to set a column to a different value. For example:

You could have a domain COUNTRY with Default Value = "United States" if the vast majority of your customers are from that country. In columns based on the domain, the value 'United States' will automatically appear, but users will be able to overwrite it if necessary.

You could have a domain with 'Y' and 'N' as allowed values, Default Value = 'N', and Display Type = Checkbox. In the user application, columns based on this domain will materialise as a checkbox that is empty by default. If it applies, the user must check it herself.
