I have a few dropdown lists used for filtering data in a grid. Initially the grid will show all the data and the user can select options from the dropdowns to filter by those selections.
Two questions: 1- What's a better option to indicate the dropdown has no selection? A blank option or something like '(View All)'? This will be the first option in the dropdown.
2- If the initial dropdown option is blank to indicate nothing is selected, would that confuse some users and make them think the dropdown is empty?
