"Switch" type collection fields not appearing in collection template

When trying to use text from my CMS in a collection template, it won’t let me see or use “switch” collection items. Do I need to change these fields to plain text in the CMS to be able to use the switch values? If I don’t need to change the CMS, what type of item will allow me to display the data?

Thanks in advance!
