[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Problems with Default Fields in Resource Records

You might want to review the User, Repository and Global preferences (which can override each other).  There’s a checkbox to “pre-populate” records.  I think you need that set to True before default values will fill for new records.

External Email - Exercise Caution
Hello All,

I utilized the “edit default fields” function to create a default resource record but it is not working for *most* of our users. It does not work for the majority of the team including me – when I create a new resource record the default fields don’t show up – but it does work for another admin. When she creates a new resource record, the default fields I implemented show up for her.

Anyone dealt with anything like this before? Thanks!
