DS-260 Electronic form, how strict in regards to past employment/residency?

I just found out my husband and I need to do this. I had no idea about it as I never received an email and haven't been on VJ in several months.

I understand the new form requires the beneficiary's employment and residency history as the DS-230 did but now they want the exact dates?
I foresee a problem here. My husband has had many many jobs in the last 5 years, I can't remember how many but at least 10 different employers. There is no way my husband can remember the exact dates he was employed.
I certainly cannot remember my own work history down to the exact date I started and ended. I think it is ridiculous to request this of anyone. I doubt most of his Indian employers have even kept a record of their employees so we will have to guess an approximate date.

How strict are they going to be in regards of the dates? Are they going to issue misrepresentation if we are not exact with the dates?

I am the petitioner.

I do not know if they're asking for exact dates.. when I did the form It was month/year but exact addresses. I only had to fill out my current employment. It's possible that it's changed though and I thought I saw a screen shot someone had uploaded of the DS-260.
