Session Defaults are configurable default values set during user sessions.
Consider a scenario where you have 8 companies set up in your account and you have to set the 'Company' field every time while creating a new Sales Order. This is a very time-consuming process when you have to deal with multiple Sales Orders daily.
2. A 'Session Defaults' prompt will appear. Set the default values for the respective fields and Save.
After saving, the default values will be set everywhere.
You can open a new Sales Order and check. The company field is set to the default Company.
Open a new Task. The 'Project' field is set to the default Project.
Open a report, for example, General Ledger. Company filter is set to the default Company.
The default values are set for that particular user for the ongoing session. Once logged out, these default values are cleared.
The Settings button is only visible to the System Manager or to a person having permission to access 'Session Default Settings'. This button navigates you to Session Default Settings where you can add or remove the document types for which you want to set Session Defaults.
