hey everyone! i'm having a strange issue with my schema where i'm trying to set the initial value of a toggle input to be
by default, but for some reason, it refuses to get set to true. this is my code + a screenshot of what the result is in sanity studio:

      title: 'Show Product Reviews',
      name: 'showProductReviews',
      type: 'boolean',
      group: 'shopModule',
      initialValue: true
was wondering if anyone had any idea on what's going on or where i went wrong?

Did you change the schema after the document was already created? If I remember correctly the
will only be set on documents created after adding that setting to the schema.

, I think I’ve run into a similar issue that may be the source of some trouble you’re having. Is the parent of the
boolean a Product created via Sanity Connect for Shopify?
If so, it seems like `initialValue`’s are only set for documents created in the Studio itself.
