I have a table field with 3 columns, one of them is 'Weekday', Type = single line text.

how can I set a placeholder to the weekday column ( Monday, Tuesday,....) in the Control Panel.

right now I have to set the value manually each time I create a new entry.

I forgot to mention that I set default values but it's also not working . enter image description here

    Do the default value settings take effect if you create a new entry with that field? Changing default values for a field won't affect existing elements using that field.

You can set default field values in Settings → Fields → your table field.

Scroll down on the page and you will see a Default Values section (docs).

Add the rows/values you need, save your field and next time you create an entry, the table will be prepopulated.

  • Actually, I did this step at first, but it seems not working. the default values are not populated at all. I'll update my question, Thank you
