How To Default Employee Name On a Data Field

I am trying to default the employee field on the timesheet details to employee name.

I tried to use the field default, but not able to do it.

Please advice.

Is it a custom or standard field?

Have you created User Permission for Employee ID? Or updated User ID in the Employee master?

Not sure I follow, but its a custom field of type data. I just need that field to default to the employee name

@ayman_elkhashab You want to try the “link” docfield type. In the Options section write Employee

From a usability perspective, you may want to use “User” instead of “Employee”; it casts a wider net.
