Is it possible to use shared list columns with default values and set different default values per content type?
I have two content types, one is the List default
item content type. The
Test Area content type was created at the site level and added to the List, it was added to my list with only the Title field, I then added List columns to this content type.
I want to use shared
list columns with different
default values for each content type.
In List Settings>Content Types>Test Area content type - when I am editing the content type, if I modify a field and set a default value I find that the same default value then is also set in the
Item content type. This is not the behaviour I expected or desire. I expected I could set a default column value per content type.
For example in the
Test Area content type I set the AREA column to have a default value of
Test Area. But when I create
Item content type it also uses the same default value - not what I wanted.
Here are the two forms, side-by-side showing the default value circled in red:
