Set current user as requestor

Hi I thought there was a way to set the current user as the default for a people picker field however I am not seeing documentation or a thread on it.
I have a requestor field that is a people picker that I want to auto fill to the current user.
Any help would be appreciated.

Dear Jennifer,

Please use this code:

   fd.field("People").ready().then(function(field) {
      fd.field("People").value = _spPageContextInfo.userLoginName;	

Notice that you should replace “People” with the internal name of your people picker field.
