 +====== Default Value (Field Setting) ======
 +
 +Automatically prepopulate any [[Field|field]] so that a [[User|user]] does not need to type in the values themselves. This features requires use of the [[Expression Builder]] to find, manipulate, and format the data to be used for the default value. Setting a default value does NOT save the value. The user must still save the [[Form|form]]. The default value applies only the particular instance of the field; it is local not global

 +  * Settings
 +    * **Simple - Build an Expression** - You can type a value or build one using the Expression Builder
 +    * **Advanced - Run Actions** - Use this when your default value depends on either context or some other value. For example, let's say you offer a subscription to your application. You would like to send your users a reminder email when the subscription is about to expire. Using the Advanced Default Value, you can set a date field for this reminder to be sent two weeks (or any other amount of time) before the subscription end date.
