Default values can be assigned to variables so that when a search is used, one or more fields will have a predefined default value. For example a default value can be added for the search path.
Default values are added by selecting the background of the Complete Search data card
Then select the Default Values button
From the Default Values pull-down, select the variable list and pick a variable you would like to assign a default value to
Then enter a default value.
When the search card is used, the default value will be displayed.
This approach can be used for other variables, such as Workflow and Workflow State. Default Values can also be used on other Data Cards, such as File cards.
