Auto-Populate Field Based on Drop-Down Choices

The more I learn, the more I realize how very little I know.  I swear - I've read through all the auto-populate threads.  I just don't know JS well enough to fight my way out of it.  Here is what I need:

 

User chooses which Trainee applies. Options are Shift Manager, Assistant General Manager, General Manager and Above, and Franchisee.

Based on which Trainee is chosen from the drop-down menu, the field Amount is automatically filled in. Shift Manager, Assistant General Manager, and General Manager and Above have set values, but the Franchisee choice will be fillable by the user.

 

I've attached an image of the document. If this has a really simple answer to someone, you're smarter than me. Help! Thanks in advance.Screenshot 2023-12-13 at 1.50.39 PM.png

If you set values as export value, for dropdown choices, you can use something like this as custom calculation script of the field where you want to show value :

if(this.getField("Dropdown").valueAsString !== "Franchisee")
event.value = this.getField("Dropdown").value;

Don't give "Franchisee" any export value.

Change "Dropdown" to your actual dropdown field name.
