I've created a Checkbox Group field, 'myPony' with two entries:

 

id: one

label: One Pony

 

id: two

label: Two Ponies

 

Now I want to select some defaults using a rule for field definition. I'd like to accomplish the following scenarios:

  • 'one' by default
  • all options by default

 

How do I achieve this?

 

Thank you very much!

Hi @Matthew Johnson 

Welcome to this community

You can set defaults via ConfiForms Registrations Control (FormView) macro, setting the parameter to override defaults or via ConfiForms Field Definition Rules macros

myPony=one

or 

myPony=one,two

Hi Alex,

 

Thanks, that clarified things for me - I've got it working! Also, the video was helpful to pull it all together.
