Setting default bookmarks

You can set a default bookmark for an app. By specifying a default bookmark, you can choose the default selections that your app consumer sees when they open the sheets in your published app.

Consider the following when using default bookmarks:

  • You can only set or remove a default bookmark in an unpublished app.
  • You can only set one default bookmark for an app.
  • You can clear the default bookmark when viewing a sheet. However, the bookmark will be applied when you re-open or reload the sheet.
  • In a published app, the app consumer can clear the default bookmark and make other selections. However, the default bookmark will be re-applied when the app consumer re-opens or reloads a sheet.
  • When you duplicate an app, the default bookmark is duplicated with the app.

For more information about bookmarks, see Bookmarking selections.

You can use a default bookmark in conjunction with the Always one selected value for a field to highlight specific selections for your app consumer. For more information about the Always one selected value, see Always one selected value.

Set a default bookmark

Do the following:

  1. Click > in the toolbar of a sheet. The Bookmarks window opens.
  2. Right-click an existing bookmark, and then click Set selections as app default. An icon is added beside the bookmark indicating that the bookmark is the app default.
  3. Click the bookmark. The Bookmarks window closes. The bookmark is shown in the top toolbar, and the selections are shown in the app.
  4. To test that the default bookmark is working properly, close and then reopen the app. The default bookmark and selections should be shown when you open a sheet.

To remove a bookmark as the default, open the Bookmarks window in an unpublished app, and then right-click the default bookmark. Click Remove selections as app default.
