    Does your userbase know what a Null value means?

  • Haivng Null and Empty next to each other is confusing, given how these terms are so similar but also so different in different contexts. I would need a little more information on its use case and implementation to help improve the solution. Jan 25, 2019 at 17:41
  • From a user, perspective what is the difference in treating the entered text as null or empty? I understand at code or database level it can be useful but why should a user select this option?

In my opinion the "Null" would be confusing for the most of people. I would used the "Empty" text.
