Getting a Dropdown field to auto populate text to another field

I am having the issue with the naming of the combobox of a sharepoint list item. 

What I am trying to do is make what ever selection a user selects in the RTO dropdown box, that it will autofill a text field box labeled "Critical".


What I am doing is a form that is running from Sharepoint list. 

I select Customize with Powerapps and enter this if statement in the Default field of the Critical text box,

Currently I have a support intake form that I am currently building for my company and we have a Sharepoint list that has a:

@Edwin-Abdalian   I got it to work. Should have tried it before prematurely responding. Man thank you a lot for your help this completes my form! You sir will be blessed! So easy a process thanks to you and your knowledge. I cant wait to go to Ignite next month to learn more about this product. Powerapps and Flow has been a life saver for me. Thanks again sir. I will mark your suggested solutions sir.
