Default Values on Standard Fields

Globalization & Custom Schema

It would fantastic if we could have the same Default Value functionality on Standard Fields that we have on Custom Fields. It would make the user experience much better if we could default Opportunity Close Date to (Today()+30), or Opportunity Amount to ([Quantity]*100.00), or create other default value formulas like those.

    A good workaround is using workflow field updates (EE and UE customers). You can have the rule fire if the field is blank upon create to set the default value.
