Enter Default Values per Information ID

This procedure is used to enter default values which will be proposed as information values for specified information IDs.

The value used can depend on the information ID and its individual item. These information values are proposed the first time an information ID is entered for an individual item. This can happen when a new information version is entered and an information structure is used as a template to create the information block and information IDs for an individual item.

The default values can also be used when a new information block with information IDs is added to an information version for an individual item, or when a new information ID is added to an individual item.

The default value used for an information ID depends on the information block and certain criteria that the item belongs to or that applies generally for all individual items.
