why was the field clearing feature removed?
until last friday, it was possible to clear a deal field completely in automations.
the workflow builder even showed a confirmation: "if you leave this field empty in this action, the field will be cleared, are you sure you want to continue?", and if that was not the intended result, you could simply go back one step and remove that field entirely from those affected by the action.
now, apparently, out of the blue, fields aren't clearable any more, and the warning says: "if you leave this field empty in this action, it will be left alone and ignored".
so basically now we can set a field, but we cannot clear it. it's like having a car that can only accelerate but has no brakes. why on earth would that be? the warning was 100% clear about this, how can the system be usable without?
also, FYI, [not that this would in any way be an acceptable solution] there's no way - anyway - of clearing a field via zapier or api, specifically because zapier says: "it is not possible to empty out a field via api".
so in essence, our 30+ workflows that have carefully been orchestrated to work together, with a lot of zapier sparkled here and there, are broken, and we're screwed.
please add the feature back.
Thanks in advance
