I don't see a way to default the EmployeeName column (person or group type) to current user. Is there a powershell way to set this up? I am not sure if the following code will work for Person and Group type column? I saw some jquery way but I rather go with OOTB if it's possible.
$w = Get-SPWeb http://inside.nov.com $l = $w.GetListFromUrl("/Lists/EmployeeSurvey/AllItems.aspx") $f = $l.Fields["EmployeeName"] $f.DefaultValue = "[ME]" $f.Update()
I tested jquery and it works perfectly with new form by adding cewp and reference the js from asset library.
