I createa a sharepoint choice column called "skills" as "checkbox" . However when I need connected/create a powerApp out of it, it shows as dropdown. The real requirement for me is that end user wnats to select multiple answers as a checkbox instead of dropdown .

Re: Checkbox SharePoint column is showing up as drop down

Hi @rajkumar88 ,

Could you tell me how do you set the choice column as check box?

As far as I know, you could only set the choice column as drop down or radio.612_LI.jpg

If you choose radio, you  could only choose one value of the choice.

If you choose drop down, you could set it to multiple choice or not.

If you set the choice to multiple choice, the choice column will display as combo box by default in PowerApps. This allows users multiple choice.

If you want to use check box for multiple choice, I'm afraid it's not suppoerted to update multiple choice. I suggest you change this field to text type.

Here's a doc about how to use check box(multiple choice) to update text type for your reference:

Re: Checkbox SharePoint column is showing up as drop down

Well not sure why it looks different for you. If you see my screen shot, I can able to create a choice column with "Checkbox" type. And yes, we can create choice column in that way.
