If you have certain numbers that should be calculated in your template documents, such as quotations, PPUs, or total salaries, you can create formulas for them.

A simple example of a use case for formulas could be calculating a yearly salary by multiplying a monthly salary by 12. **Numeric references can be used as parts of formulas**, meaning that if you already have an existing reference for monthly salary, you can multiply that reference by 12.

To create a formula, simply

- Click
*Templates*in the top menu, click the template which you want to add formulas to and open the template document in the editor, - Set a reference name for the formula and create the calculation by inserting numbers, references, and operators. Some of the allowed operators and their uses are:

“( )” - Parentheses

“+” - Addition

“-” - Subtraction

“*” - Multiplication

“/” - Division - Insert the formula by clicking
*References*in the editor’s top menu, or by clicking the green*Add formula*button (the “+” symbol) next to the formula in the editor’s left-hand menu.

**Pro tip: **Formulas also allow for mathematical operations and functions such as modulos, exponentials, booleans, and comparisons, allowing for more advanced calculations.
