AppSheet displays a drop-down list for Enum or EnumList fields. 

  • An Enum allows the user to select one value from the list of allowed values.

  • An EnumList allows the user to select zero or more values from the list of allowed values.

Tip: To explore this feature, see the Dropdowns sample.

To define an Enum or EnumList:

  1. Go to the Data > Columns pane in the app editor.

  2. Expand the table that you want to edit.

  3. Click the edit (pencil) icon to the left of the field name you wish to make a drop-down list.

  4. Select either Enum or EnumList in the Type field.

  5. Enter the allowed values in the Values fields.

  6. Consider enabling the following options:

    • Allow other values - enables users to enter any value they wish in addition to the allowed values displayed in the drop-down list.

    • Auto-complete other values - makes it easier for the user to choose from the set of previously entered values. This option can help ensure all entries are submitted in the same way, thereby avoiding typos.

  7. Control how the values are displayed by setting the Input mode.
