Option to write Default Value to PI tags created through AF Templates
When creating PI points through AF Templates, there should be an option to "Write Default Value after Point Creation", or some other way to initialize the value of an automatically created PI tag.
Right now, there is no way to replace the Pt Created value with a default value upon creation, and the "Default Value" in the AF Template serves no real purpose for PI Point Data References.

This would be beneficial for a template I just created that is a counter. I needed to initialize the PI Point on the PI Data Archive, but if this functionality was there AF would be able to perform the entire procedure.
Since these are PI Points, we tend to consider them to be time series data. Is that true in this situation or is the data fundamentally different? Ideally, where would these default values come from?
