How should I respond to the "What's your desired compensation?" when it's on the application, is a required question and it won't allow you to put a range or use letters?

I usually put tbd if they allow it. Sometimes they only allow numbers, so then I do put in my desired compensation.

Realistically, just put what you want. They’ll still reach out as long as you’re relatively close to their range. And if you’re way off base, it’s not worth getting that role anyway.

Put 0 or 1

Am I asking much?

TIA
