    I'm trying to set the default value to a List - User field to a specific user instead of the current user. Is this possible? If so, any assistance would be appreciated.

    Not tested but you can make a formula List user field with the value of the default user and then use a form rule to populate if its blank.  Post back if you need help with the formula

    not tested by try this

    Make a formula List User field type called [Default List User] with the formula

    ToUserList(User())

    Then make a formula rule that says that when the list user field is empty change the value to the value in the field [Default List User],  

    Uncheck the checkbox at the bottom of the rile so that it fires all the time.

    Thanks for the response. Could you tell me a little on how to do that. I tried playing around with it but I cannot get it to work.
