Default value for a custom field


Question / Problem: 

Can I have a default value for a field?

Answer / Solution: 

There is a setting for "Default Value" in the document field window.

NOTE! This is only available for custom header fields whose type setting is set to Text.

If you select Save default value per supplier, the default value is updated, on a supplier basis, each time the value is changed during verification. For example, if you set the default value to "ABC", the value is initially "ABC" for all suppliers. However, if an Office user changes the field value to "XYZ" during verification, the new default value for that particular supplier will be "XYZ". The other suppliers will keep the original default value of "ABC".
