      Just wanting to share a little win …

      I wanted to set the currently logged in user as the default choice in a people picker field. Ideally I was hoping for it to be a column setting like other fields, but it doesn’t look like it is available anymore in SharePoint 2013. Googled up a few alternatives, but all looked clunky. Enter DFFS:

      – New Rule: SetRequestorDefault
      – Validate on: Form load
      – If this trigger: Requestor is equal to <blank>
      – Set field value: Requestor {currentUser}

      Unfortunately this doesn’t trigger on bulk list edits, but making requestor a required field keeps it workable.
