    Is there a way to have a select all button for multi-select field? Then have the user only uncheck the ones they don't need vs. having to individually check 10 boxes?

    Thanks

    You can set up the "Default value" option in the field settings w/ the desired values separated by semicolons, like so:

    Hi SkyTriv,

    Dan is correct it is possible to set up a default selection of options that will pre-populate for a multi-select text field. One thing to keep in mind is that multi-select text fields are limited to a total of 20 selections at any one time. So if you are making use of a multi-select text field with more then 20 options you would need to pick  a set of 20 to populate by default instead. Alternatively, it is also possible to create a API Edit Record button that will allow you to push a set of values into the Multi-select Text field or a Form rule that can the Multi-select text field to a preset list of options. For example when the Energy Industry checkbox is checked change Multi-select text field to "Industry-Energy; Industry-Power; Industry-Utility". I hope these suggestions are helpful SkyTriv.
