Can the default answer be changed?

Can the default for student gender be "blank" to force registrants to choose which gender their child is?  With early registration we've had nearly a dozen mislabeled due to the default of male not being corrected by the registrant.  Thanks for considering.


Because of the way our system handles drop-down lists, they cannot have a blank option if they are required, which gender is.

We are looking into changing gender to be a radio button field, which does not have a default. We expect to have that change in the next update, which will be a few weeks.

Thanks for the suggestion.


We have updated the gender field to use a radio button style control, which does not have a default. Hopefully this will prevent people inadvertently choosing the wrong one.
