Using variables or text as a Default Value for Forms


For a Forms page, you can set a Default Value for a Salesforce Element.

To do so, add the text or variable as the Default Value for a Salesforce Element in a Forms page. Text should be entered exactly as you wish it to appear. Variables will always have their name surrounded by curly brackets and begin with a dollar sign such as {$Variablename}. Only text or a single variable can be used as the Default Value.
