There's all about hierarchy :

Menu1 Item 1
Menu1 Item 2

    SubMenu1 Item 1
    SubMenu1 Item 2

Menu1 Item 3

Item 1 could be any menu type, like an article or link or.... you only have to select the parent menu you want, in this case (SubMenu1)

And in SubMenu1 select Menu1 as his parent.

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Check the example here

And then click on Menu test 1 here

Before attempting to add a drop down menu item, review your template settings to be sure your template supports drop down menus.

Wow - you are right - this template does not seem to support dropdown menu items - but the weird thing is that when i saw the demo - it has them (drop down menu items)

This link below explains clearly & i do not have the Category blog option:

Your template could not have the drop down menu but there are plenty alternatives:
