Adding Files when opening the Appsmit App


I want to be able to specify several files at startup of the Appsmith application, which are available in a file picklist without having to be selected by the user. Currently, there is no way to set a default value in a FilePicker widget. Additionally, the video in the Document Viewer widget is linked to the wrong tutorial.


Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to set default selected files in a FilePicker widget in Appsmith. However, if you provide more information on your use case and why you need this feature, we may be able to suggest alternative solutions. One idea is to use a DocViewer widget to display pre-selected files.

In terms of the issue with the video in the Document Viewer widget, it appears to be a mistake and should be corrected by the Appsmith team. We suggest reaching out to their customer support for assistance.
