You can set the default value of a Caldera Forms field using a shortcode attribute. In the Caldera Forms shortcode, use the field ID as the attribute and provide the default value. For example, to set the field with the ID “fld_2758980” to the default value of “42” you would use fld_2758980=”42″.
- This feature requires Caldera Forms 188.8.131.52 or later.
- You can not use another shortcode to set the field default by nesting it inside of the Caldera Forms shortcode
