another Column should show when selecting the one of the dropdowns

Hi I'm new to the PowerApps.

I have a column called "Guest User Confirmation" its a choice field with drop downs (I confirm the user's email is accurate, The User's email need to be updated & I cannot confirm this users email address)


When user clicks on  (The User's email need to be updated) another column has to show up "Revised Email" (name of the column) and its a single line of text.


Its a very high priority, help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

You can use a combo box instead. It will behave exactly like a dropdown but will provide the following additional capabilities:
1. You can have a blank default value
2. You can select multiple values; if you don't want that, you can select multiple select = false
3. You can display multiple values by clicking on Edit field and selecting double instead of single. It will then allow you to pick the two values you want to display.

Not in front of my computer so dont have screenshots. Let me know if this doesnt work.

I assume you are talking about showing that column in a form.  If so, add the extra column normally and then change the Visible property on the data card to show or hide the column based on the choice in the dropdown.
