Hi @Anonymous,

 

Currently there is no way to configure the default property of the Dropdown with Null value.

There is an idea submitted on this already:

Drop down control has no blank option

By default, if the default property of the dropdown is not configured, it will automatically map to the first item of the Dropdown list.

You may take a look at my another reply in the this thread.

 

Regards,

Michael

Could you collect a blank into your DropDown and use that as it's default value?

 

I posted on this earlier and it might help in this case: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Forum/Dropdown-list-with-distinct-values-and-option-for-quot-All-quot/m-p/64819#M26662

 

You could create a collection for your dropdown with a  "" as the first value instead of "All" and set that to your default dropdown value.
