In general, Skuid uses a Field's default Value when setting values on fields in new records, but Skuid currently does NOT support default value formulas, such as
When attempting to set a default for Fields in new records, Skuid looks for information from the following sources:
- Default values, such as true/false, or a Default Picklist value, specified in the Field's Salesforce metadata.
- Active Conditions on the Model whose Operators are "=" or "starts with"
So if you have a Skuid Page that is, say, used for creating a new Contact record, you can add a Condition on your New Contact Model that achieves something similar, e.g.
- Field: My_Date_Field__c
- Operator: =
- Value: Single specified value, Today
Skuid supports a number of Date / Datetime Literals, but only Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow can currently be used for setting default field values on new records.
