I have a problem with creating column in Sharepoint part for HelpDesk app

according to instructions I should select Choice as type of information, specify my choices and then select Drop-Down menu





but I am not finding that option....

but when I ckick on it, it is changing to text field and no option to make a choice which was defined in earlier steps.

Re: Drop down missing in column of sharepoint list (HelpDesk app)

It looks like you are creating the column from your list view. When you do that not all the options are available. In this case you want to go to the list setting's page and create the column from there and then you see the other options.
