Whilst in the latest version of Pathways the "Host Defaults" are commonly used to provide default values for new placements, some customers like to have a system-level default as well. In the absence of a host having some placement defaults, these are used as a catch-all.
The idea is when you create a placement, these values are automatically copied into the new placement record to save data entry or assist in consistency of data.
- Visit the Setup Screen - https://www.pathwayscloud.com/Coordinator/Setup
- Click on the "Default Values for New Records" link at the top left, as shown below
- In the popup you can optionally set a key set of core placement values. Be sure to hit "Save" at the bottom right when complete. All placements created from this point onwards will have these defaults copied in if the Host itself doesn't' have any of their own.
