I modified an existing Contact picklist field to no longer have a default value (it previously did). However, new Contacts still get set with a default value and I'm not sure why. Here's the field setup:

Any ideas why?

Turns out it was a record type issue. Got it fixed!

EDIT: Here's how I did it for others with this problem:

  1. Go to the object and find "Record Types" in the setup menu

enter image description here

  1. For each record type of that object, click on the name of the record type (don't click "edit")

enter image description here

  1. You'll see a list of picklist fields available for that record type. Find the one in question and click "edit"

enter image description here

  1. Set the default value

enter image description here

  1. Rinse and repeat for all other record types of that object
  • From review: Adding a more detailled answer would be great for others having the same issue in the future. – Markus Slabina Jul 27 '17 at 19:46
