[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Problems with rapid data entry

When trying to enter a box of 18 files using rapid data entry, some of my
folders are undated. The date begin and date end columns don't seem to have
an option that allows you to enter a null value, and you can't leave them
blank. In AT, I would enter Undated in the date expression field and leave
the date begin/end fields blank. At the moment, I'm entering a fake date
and then going back after I've saved an deleting the date one by one. That
defeats the entire point of the efficiency of rapid data entry.

Also, if I have to stop my work early, there seems to be no way to delete
rows after you've created them in rapid data entry, that I can find. Am I
missing something?
