How to add it

Add the Column by clicking the '+' to the right of your Columns and selecting "Dropdown" from the resulting menu like this:

Note: If you do not see this column type in the resulting menu, click on the "More columns" button to access the full column center and search for this column type.

 

How it works

Once your column is added, click inside the cell and add/edit your dropdown options.

To select multiple options from the dropdown menu, you can simply just select multiple options from the list. 

Note: We currently have a limit of 500 labels per dropdown column.

 

Keyboard shortcuts

To work with the Dropdown column more efficiently, try using some of the below keyboard shortcuts!

  • ENTER: To create a new label or select the first label, simply press ENTER
  • CTRL (PC) or CMD (Mac): You can choose multiple options without closing the dialog by holding on CTRL (for PC users) or Command (for Mac users)
  • ESC: For closing the dialog

 

Copy/paste to the dropdown column

If you have a list of labels that you'd like to transfer directly to the dropdown column, you can do that simply by copying the relevant labels from your Excel or Google Docs and paste it into the dropdown column.

Turning the dropdown column into tags

You can convert your dropdown column into tags using the Tags column. The tags created are based on the labels used in each cell of the dropdown. 🙌

To convert your dropdown column, click on the three-dot menu to the right of your Dropdown column, click on "Change column type" and then "Tags" as below:
