Document Automator to Replace Content instead of Add to It?

Hi all!

I'm working on building a Google Docs Automator where the automation updates a google document instead of creating a new one. I was able to create the content to pull all of the applicable data I need, but I noticed it's just adding to the content of the google doc, rather than replacing the content in it. 

Is there a way to set up the automation where the content is replaced with each automation run (i.e. "update")?

For reference, this is to build itineraries for individuals that I have set up to update once a week (for now, but may increase the frequency later) - so it gets a bit cumbersome and superfluous in the document very quickly if it keeps adding a full schedule on top of what was already in the document - not to mention confusing for the folks referencing the schedule.

Thanks for any help that can be provided!

Hi @Abbey_Matye, I know I'm a bit late here, but please check out DocsAutomator.

It's a tool to turn Airtable data into Google Docs / PDF.
