I created a form with 2 top projects X and Y and want to see different default values when selected project X than project Y , whilst keeping the same fields.
You would need to create two separate forms. Default values are not dynamic.
That is a great idea though. Feel free to browse the Product Ideas tab (at the top of the page) to see if someone else has already submitted the idea. If they have then you can add your vote to it. If they have not, you can submit it as a new idea which will give others the ability to add their votes.
Also... Don't forget to post a link to the idea here in this thread as well so others looking for the same thing can easily navigate to it and add their vote.
Thanks for your respoonse Paul.

I've merged your Idea onto the one that already exists: Dynamic dropdowns - Waterfall request
@Genevieve P. I'm not sure they are the same. The one idea is for dynamic dropdowns whereas this post is looking for dynamic default values within the form. Or did I misunderstand?
Ah yes you're right.
@Lahcene can you clarify if you're only concerned about the default value that shows in a form, or do you want the actual options to change in the dropdown list as well as the default?
@Paul Newcome I believe it would still be the same functionality that's needed for the default logic to update - if dropdowns could waterfall, then we could change the default based on initial selections. I could be wrong here but the context provided for the Product team on that other Idea post will be good for them to see!
When I think of "Default Value" in a form, I think of a value that is pre-populated in the field, but not necessarily dropdowns. It could be a default date, contact, or text string/number too.
I'm thinking along the lines of form field logic that says...
If [Dropdown] is "A" then set default value in [Date Field] as 01 June 2023.
If [Dropdown] is "B" then set default value in [Date Field] as 02 June 2023.
I do think that some of the logic is similar, but I think it is two separate outcomes?
Is there a way to create a filter to only show let's say cells highlighted in yellow?
I'm having some issues with the workflows cos' sometimes they just stop working and once i run them again, everything works again. So, I think I may be the number of columns the Smartsheet has (about 200)
