    Configurable list widget: Display date field blank instead of current date

    Asked by marklane on June 15, 2016 at 12:26 PM

    Is it possible to have the (Calendar : date : m/d/y : 2000-2015) display all blanks as a default instead of whatever the current date is? Please let me know if this is possible.

    The problem is found if you indicate that you have kids. The birthdate box pops up with info prefilled (current date).

    I understand that you want to have the date field displayed blank instead of the current date in a configurable list widget. Unfortunately, there is no setting in the widget to have the date field blank at the moment. Let me forward the issue to our backend team to evaluate the issue. I cannot provide you an ETA at the moment. However, when we have any update with the issue you'll be posted here. 

    Thank you!

    Any help with this? I would like as well to have an option not to display current date but display all blanks as a default instead or at least say select.
