How to set the default value for a managed metadata field

On a SharePoint list where the form has been customized with PowerApps:

  • I have a managed metadata field called scCountry plugged to a termset that lists all countries
  • When I create a new item in the list, I would like the scCountry field to have the default value France (which GUID would be for instance cfbda370-ce29-4033-a110-948a0cc3f948)

When I manuallyt select France in the listbox of that field and I look at the datacard value for that field, I see it is formatted as France|cfbda370-ce29-4033-a110-948a0cc3f948.

 

How can I set this listbox to have the default value France when I the NEW form shows up for my list ?

Hi @R3dKap,

 

In current, “Managed Metadata” is a read only field and it’s impossible to configure the default value of it.

 

Here is the reference link:

Check the following link for how to set default value of share point field:

Hope this helps.

 

Regards,

Zheng
