There are cases where you want to display a Dropdown field but you want to set a "Select an option" placeholder text to the dropdown for your users to select an option from the list.

To do so you will need to go to your Dropdown field > Advanced > Placeholder Text and set the value that you want to display as your pre-selected option.
