Default Value in Model Driven App

I am pretty new to PowerApps and have been working on a Model Driven Application (MDA). The question that I have is how do you set a default value in a MDA form (text field) only when you create a new record. I know how to do this in a canvas app but not sure in a MDA.

Hi @Montana 

To set a default value, you would define a business rule. The documentation for this is here.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/data-platform/data-platform-create-business-rule

The trick is to add the condition 'created on' does not contain data. That's the condition that identifies a new record.
