Introduction:

When creating a select field in an IRF, it can be useful to set a default option for the select field.  First drag the select field to a page in your IRF as well as an Option or 2:

Your IRF should look like this:

Clicking the drop down shows the Option1 and Option2 values.  

Question:

But what if you want to have a default option selected when users are responding to the IRF?  For our example above, let's say that you want users to open the IRF and have Option1 already selected from the drop down list with the option for the user to change that if they would like.  How do you do that?

Answer:

To select a default option, simply select the option in your IRF design as shown below:

Now when you save the IRF, that option will be the default shown when presented to the user.
