Default selection in dependent dropdown selection

Hi All,

 

Do we have an option to set default value based on the dependent dropdown list selection. I have 2 lists A and B. List B is filtered based on selection from List A. I would like to know if there is a way to select display default value after a value is selected from List A dropdown.

 

Thanks,

Aparv

Hi Aparv,

No, currently we don't have this option.

Thank you for the reply Vignesh!

 

In List B let say if it holds 5 values, If i select its parent from Parent A it should pick top most value as default value and display in dashboard, if List B has only only one value based on List A selection it should become default value to be displayed in dashboard.

Hi Aparv,

We can achieve this through formula in another line item, but can't make it as default item in dependent drop-down.

Hi,

 

As mentioned by Vignesh we don't have such functionality, by default, available in Anaplan. There are workarounds though. May be you can post this idea on Anaplan Idea exchange.

 

Thanks,
