Default value for a dependent picklist field

How can I set a default value for a dependent picklist field ?

Hi,

 

You can set default values for controlling fields but not for dependent picklists.

Currently, if a picklist is the dependent field in a Field Dependency, its value will never be defaulted. This kinda makes sense when the field dependency restricts the default value from being an option. However, when the default value is an option, there's no logical reason for it not to be defaulted. This is true whether the default is set via record type or via the picklist field itself.
