Add the Ability to clear a Field mirroring the CRM workflow designers feature

In the existing CRM workflow designer we can choose a function to clear a field, Be it a lookup, text string or date field.  Basically setting it to Null in the db.  Presently there is nothing in flow which matches this that i can see or am aware of

In flow there is no clear way to do this. I can copy another date field using dynamic content and if the source is blank it will then set the destination as blank, i cannot gurantee the source is blank in this instance. 

Using a compose and setting to to NULL works for look ups and text stings when using the compose output as dynamic content. this will clear the target setting it to NULL. 

However for a date field the flow fails as the date field expects an inputw wiht in a specific date range rather then the 01/01/0001 which is tries to enter as NULL

 

odata.metadata=minimal\r\nOData-Version: 4.0\r\n\r\n{\"error\":{\"code\":\"0x80040239\",\"message\":\
"DateTime is less than minumum value supported by CrmDateTime. Actual value: 01/01/0001 00:00:00,
Minimum value supported: 01/01/1753 00:00:00\",\"innererror\":{\
"message\":\"DateTime is less than minumum value supported by CrmDateTime. Actual value: 01/01/0001 00:00:00,

 

The ability to celar a field if a condition is met is a sizable requirement on many workflows and there is not a clean way to do this presently with out some genuius temporary tables to contain blank date field which can then be used to set dynamic content
