I'm sure this question has allready been answered on the forum - you should really search. But because you are new and I want the brownie points...

Log in as administrator (dont think you need technical rights)

Activate developer mode (you can search to find out how to do this

Go to a customer form

Change the value of what you want to make default eg county = United Kingdom

Select from the developer mode "set defaults"

Choose the default from the drop down

Select who you want the default to apply to.

Save default

There's no default for Country nor country code in res.partner.

I had one reference link where you can see how to set default country via code.

It might be batter option for dedicated solution.


Or you can set default as above option suggest, but it might again require to configure with new database.

O' I like your way! - I can see a configuration file being started! - But I think it will be a bit challenging for Joep
