Can I include a formula field on a edit screen?

Knowledge Article Number 000232993
Description When a user creates a record the formula fields are not visible on the Edit page but becomes available once they save the record. Is there any way the field with the value can be visible on the Edit screen when they create the record?
Resolution Formula Fields cannot display on the edit screen using the Classic Interface. However, they are available in Lightning Experience.

If you need to see the Formula fields in the Classic Interface you'd have to educate your users to use Inline Editing or override the Edit page with a Visualforce Page.
