# Adding formulas to your application

Use formulas to assign values to items on an HCL Domino Volt form. They are divided into two categories: Item Formulas, which list formulas created from the Properties panel, and General Formulas, which list complex formulas created from the Settings tab.

There are two places within Domino Volt where you can access the
Formula editor:

- The Formula tab of the Properties panel.
- The Formula menu item from the Settings tab.
