  • You cannot change the type of column after the column is created.

  • However, if you have names present in "Single line text" column then you can create a "Person or Group" column.

  • Keep them aside by modifying the display position.
  • Under "Quick Edit", copy and paste the name values of "Single line text" column to "Person or Group" column.
