How to set a specific value as default value for choice?

I have a choice component and I want it to have 1 as a default value selected.
In the setting I want, 1 is already selected and if I add row I want 1 is added in that column.
Is there any fuction in Glide for this?



On the setting panel of the choice component you will find the default value option.

I’m not close to a computer at the moment. If anybody else doesn’t provide a screenshot of it, I will later today.

Hi Santiago!

Seems like it only exists in form setting. Can’t understand why it is designed this way. Glide is really a useful tool but I can’t understand why they don’t allow a flexible form or screen.

They do have reasons to do it that way, in my opinion.

What if you use a default value for a choice component outside of a form environment, and point to a wrong column, mistakenly delete all the data of that column and overwrite the default value to it? I don’t think many users will be happy with that.

Custom form is a workaround, so you have to use set columns to set default values.


Depending on what you’re doing, you can use an if then else column.

If x cell is empty then x value.
