Required Dropdown Selection


Question

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but...I have a dropdown field that has about 10 values in it and it automatically defaults to the top value.  I want the user to have to select something from the list and not just accept the default value.  So, I made the field "Required" and inserted a default value of "Please Select".  So when the form is displayed, that value shows and there's a red asterisk showing that the field is required, but the user never has to select anything in that field because the app is accepting the default value. 

How do I make the user have to inspect that field and select a legitimate value?

You need to remove "Please select" in the "Value" field. You may find more details here
