Setting default values in List box

Hello,  

How do you set default values in filter.   I have list of several hundred values in user selection filter and want to set 5 default values from that list that will always be selected when users access dashboard.  

Appreciate the help I can get.  Thank You

Either as bookmark as described by Dilip, or

create a trigger on open and store it with the document:

Settings -> Document Properties -> Triggers -> Document Event Triggers -> On Open -> Add Action(s) -> Selection ->

and then either "Select in Field": enter Fieldname and your selections in brackets and separated by "|", e.g. (Value1|Value2|Value3)
or choose "Toggle Select" and enter your selections one-by-one.

Re: Setting default values in List box

You can select the 5 values and create a bookmark of the same.
then set the bookmark as the default bookmark for the app, so when app opens this will be selected always
