Change Your Default Plan Version

Explains how to  change the default version of your instance.

The default version:

  • Must be a plan version
  • Is the default for your entire team
  • Is bold in the version drop-down 

When you view sheets, you view the default version data until you select a different version. When you view reports and dashboards, you view the default version's data unless the builder of the report or dashboard specified a different version. 

You choose the default version in the settings of the version:
