Formula Language

Formula language is a programming language for building formulas in IBM's Notes and Domino software. Formula language helps users write code that performs tasks such as data validation, agent scheduling, and view column calculations within the environments of Notes databases and Domino applications. It provides simple syntax tools like operators (e.g., +, -, *, /), functions (text manipulation, date-time handling), reference handling (fields or constants) to simplify common programming tasks without requiring extensive knowledge of traditional programming languages such as JavaScript or Java. Formula language allows non-programmers to create automated actions within an application platform tailored towards collaboration and workflow management.
