How t set a default value to Symbol column

edited 12/09/19 in Formulas and Functions


I have a symbol column with 3 options representing payment status, (Yes, No, Hold).

By default it should be "Hold" until the user choses if the payment was accepted or rejected, so what I would like is that whenever a new row is filled, the symbol cell should be set to "Hold" by default. I know formulas don't work with dropdown lists, but I don't know if there's an option to set it to Hold by default without a formula.

Thank you in advance
