Choice workflow variable how do I set the choice options?

When I create a workflow variable of choice datatype in Office 365 how do I set the choice options?

 

I want to set possible values of:

Not Applicable

But I cant see in the workflow designer how to set these options for the workflow variable.

HI,

The Choice variable is used to set a single choice on a choice column. You do not store all choices in the variable as the available choices are already configured in the column.

Thanks @SimonMuntz 

Different to how I thought it would be used.

 

I'm just a bit too familiar to the experience of the SharePoint on-premise workflow variables.

Oh my mistake sorry. I didn't realise you wanted to show the variable on a start form.
To do this in O365 you have to create a choice variable and then tick the Initiation check box and a yellow cog will appear. Click the cog and you will be able to enter the choices.
