I have a list that accepts 5 different values, but some things on my spreadsheet are empty, meaning its none of the 5 things. However during the feeds import, it is saying my empty field is not a valid selection.

Is there a way I can still import even though the value is empty?

  • Yes, its key is _none

Select Element's API

#empty_option: (optional) The label to show for the first default option. By default, the label is automatically set to "- Select -" for a required field and "- None -" for an optional field.

#empty_value: (optional) The value for the first default option, which is used to determine whether the user submitted a value or not.

So using this information, you are able to use the null value's defaults from the select element.
