Every time i create a new field the settings are automatically checked for 

"Add this field to all new reports" and 

"Copy the value when using "Copy this Site" to add a new Site"



I've figured out how to make the default "unchecked" for Adding to all new reports, but i can't find the option to uncheck that "Copy value..." field.

I hate having to go into each field and manually uncheck that box.

What a depressing way to start the new year - EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. In 2017 I would be concerned that the QuickBase community does not choke on the tidal way of JavaScript goodness that is going to wash over all your applications and propel your company to unheard of levels of productivity and profitability.

For a demo follow this simple three step procedure (without taking any shortcuts):

STEP 2: Create A New Field:

STEP 3: Edit Your Field Properties

Note that the two checkboxes are UNCHECKED:

"Copy the value when using "Copy this Record" to add a new Record"

"Add this field to all new reports"
