This action passes input through as output.

Result

This action passes input through as output.

Comments

For each item, place the desired actions underneath the corresponding sections in the action – all before End Menu.

Then, when the shortcut is run, the user chooses from the items and only the the actions placed underneath the chosen option are utilized – you can create different subpaths within one shortcut and choose which route to take during runtime.

If you instead want to pass the option names out as input, consider using List and Choose From List instead.

Using an If action can also replicate some of the behavior of Choose From Menu, but it can get complicated to nest If actions for the various conditions.
