Add preference to set default for "Target Promotion State".

Add preference to set default for "Target Promotion State".

When creating a Promotion Request the user currently must select the Target Promotion State from a dropdown list of possible states.

Sense the vast majority of promotion requests will be to the same state (i.e. Released), it would be benificial to have the ability to set that state as the default. By doing so, you eliminate two clicks in most cases from the promotion process (one click to display the drop-down list, the other to select the state from the list). If a state other than the default is desired, then there would be no change to the number of clicks.

Oh yes that would be great to save some clicks for heavy users!

In addition if it would be possible to change the UI element for the state attribute from a dropdown to radio buttons you would save another click also in the case where the default is not the right pick.

Peridot

What we did is a little different, but will result in few clicks.  You can set a property to set the Initially selected or Initially Selcted and Collected as Promotion Targets by default.  The user then only needs to select the Target state.
