Set a default value for a visualization dimension

I have created a new visualization. It includes a selectable list of field names (lets assume it is called 'Departments' for this example). It works really well when my visualization is running - and people can click on any department to see the chart change to reflect the data for it. However, I'd like to default that setting to be "Marketing" department which is one of the 4 departments listed there.

How do I default the selection so that everytime anyone opens the visualization it starts with the "Marketing" selection for the Department Dimension?

Thank you.

You can set a onopen trigger which has a select in field trigger to select Marketing.
