    Unfortunately it's not possible to set the date in configurable list as empty or blank, the default is current date, you can change the formatting around but it will always view a date inside the fields.

    Thank you!

    My understanding is that you want your users to have an option to edit the form submission. In this way, they can just add or edit values on the input fields. Please take note that they need to click the "Submit" button after editing the form.

    You can insert an Edit Link on the Autoresponder email. Here's a guide: How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date.

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you're referring to a different issue. Thank you.
