  2. Press = or select the Formula button in the toolbar

  3. Search for a formula or scroll the list

Format cells with cell types

You can use a variety of cell types to format and customize your tables. Select a cell in your table, then choose Cell Type from the toolbar to use the following options:

  • Auto - text and numbers

  • Number

  • Currency

  • Percentage

  • Checkbox

  • Text

  • Date and Time (this offers a range of date formats)

Note: Cell types change based on the data you add. E.g. If you add a date, Milanote turns that cell into a Date cell, so it's nicely formatted.
