Unable to set date in picker to null

Good morning.

I have a very simple nintex form in SP 2013 (no workflows etc) with multiple date pickers. Users are unable to delete the date if one has already been selected - the picker does initially show as blank, but when it is saved back a previous date appears. Users are however able to select a different date and save that back successfully, but can't set it blank.

 

I do have a work-around in place (setting the date to 01/01/2025 and getting excel to filter it out in the export) but would like to understand the issue and have a fix.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Can you check that the column does not have "Require that this column contains information" option set to Yes?

Re: Unable to set date in picker to null

what exact version are you on?

classic or responsive forms?

I've tested with 2.11.5.0 and couldn't reproduce that. once I cleared form control and submitted form, the date list field got cleared as well.

 

 

how do you set that 2025 date? by a javascript?

couldn't a javascript cause a date is populated if its empty in list?
