Set Field Default value based on a different field

It would be nice if you could use Date Record Expression Language (DREL) to set the default value of a field.

Example:   In field "After Hours Contact" , I want to have a default value from the field "Day Contact".   When I type in %a[Day Contact] as a default value for Field, I get the text "%a[Day Contact]" instead of the actual name.

    Hi Lenny,

    It's possible to do this (with caveats, see below) using a conditional logic rule that sets the "After Hours Contact" to the answer to "Day Contact", so long as "Day Contact" is answered:

    However, please note that if your mobile users are moving back and forth through the form, or if there are dispatch workflows, the conditional logic might re-trigger and overwrite any new answer your mobile users entered. 

    I hope this solves your problem, and I'd be happy to hear your feedback or further details on this feature request.

    Thank you,

    Erin Longhurst

    Having the field overwrite itself when the user went back to that page is what I was trying to avoid
