Preset a value/selection based on existing collection value

Is there a way to preset (on screen load) the value / selection of a horizontal chip list based on the value in another table/variable? This seems like such a simple/obvious thing, but impossible to achieve…

Scenario: User (collection) logs a daily progress log (collection) of health statuses. These status are entered via a series of chip list selections. When the user revisits a prior day’s log, it is impossible to show what selections were made using the chip list, because there is no way to pre-load those values to that component.

Thank you!
