Is there a straight forward way to prepopulate text in a Custom Text field? For ex. a new Text field is created in the Custom area of a Feature. By default there is some text present describing the purpose of the field.
I appreciate any assistance on this.
Hey Alcantara, give Templates a try, they are available for RTF fields. Looking in my own workspace, I have a custom field called 'Custom Text' and it's got the Templates option. To auto-populate text, set a default template.

But is there a rich-text editor as an app? I'm trying to add documentation to my dashboards.

Hope that helps.

Gave that a shot and seem to be having issue with it as a default. No auto populate... When generating a new feature, using a new template set to default doesn't apply it to the field. Manually it works like a charm if I go in an then hit apply.
