Include Default Dropdown Selection in IsBlank Code

Hi Experts,


On my OnSelect of my button, I have the below code to make sure that all fields aren't left blank before continuing to the next screen, all of the dropdown boxes have the default option set to "Please select an option", is there a way that I can include that to make sure the user actually selects something from that drop down list? Also in the notify message, is there a way of telling them which ones haven't been filled in? 


    IsBlank('Dropdown-1'.Selected.Value) ||
    IsBlank('Date-Created'.SelectedDate) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-2'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Date-Closed'.SelectedDate) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-3'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-4'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Job-Number'.Text) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-5'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-6'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-7'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-8'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Dropdown-9'.Selected.Value) || 
    IsBlank('Txt-1'.Text) || 
    IsBlank('Txt-2'.Text) || 
    Notify("Please fill out all items"),



OnAppStart or on Screen (where you form/controls are there) OnVisible property you can add => Set( varOnSubmit, false)

    'Dropdown-1'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" ||
    IsBlank('Date-Created'.SelectedDate) || 
    'Dropdown-2'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    IsBlank('Date-Closed'.SelectedDate) || 
    'Dropdown-3'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    'Dropdown-4'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    IsBlank('Job-Number'.Text) || 
    'Dropdown-5'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    'Dropdown-6'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    'Dropdown-7'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    'Dropdown-8'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    'Dropdown-9'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option" || 
    IsBlank('Txt-1'.Text) || 
    IsBlank('Txt-2'.Text) || 
    'Dropdown-10'.Selected.Value = "Please select an option",
    Set(varOnSubmit, true);
    Notify("Please fill out all items"),
Set(varOnSubmit, false);
