Hi,
I would like to set a custom column as default, so that when a new site is created, it will appear visible automatically.
This custom column contains a link to a flow and it is a site column (it is a column formated with JSON to add the link). Is this possible? I find it very strange that no one has asked this before, or that this is not an option!
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi, you can use the Site Designs and Site Scripts to customize the site and store it as a template. So whenever the user chose your template, all the list and other artifacts are automatically created and ready to go. Please refer to the below link for more details.
