Bounty: 100

I am working on a list view, where i have a choice column named TrackingStatus. Now for this choice column i defined the default value to be In Progress from the site columns settings.

But i have noticed that inside the Quick edit grid the default value for the TrackingStatus column will not be rendered (unlike inside the built-in create and edit forms).. so i tried to implement the default values using JS Link as follow:

I upload the following script inside my site collection:

(function () {
    var overrideContext= {};

    overrideContext.Templates = overrideContext.Templates || {};

    overrideContext.Templates.Fields = {
        "TrackingStatus": {
            "View": function (ctx) {if(ctx.CurrentItem.your_column == "")
        return "In Progress";



Then I edit my list view WebPart and I provide the following to reference the above JSlink under the WebPart Miscellaneous section.:


But the JS Link is not having any effect in respect to applying default values for my column, although when I checked the page source I can see that the defaultvalues.js is being loaded and i got the alert(1) which I intentionally added inside the JS Link.

How can I define default values for my choices columns inside the Quick Edit grid?
