i have a script step in an automation that i have been using for many weeks. it has been working as expected- with many runs per day. i've been rebuilding some automations, so i've been running them a lot as i test them. 

just now, the automation stalled out and finally failed:

An unexpected error occurred, please contact Airtable support.

When i tried to test the script, i received this error:


There was an unexpected error while executing your script.

the script in question is: 

output.set("date", new Date().toISOString())
I started using this script in December to replace having a "Today" field that used the Today formula. I use the script to update a field that displays when the last automated activity took place. it is used in many automations and all are now failing.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

HI! Same here,

All my script to get the current date/time are not working.
Result : all my scripts are unable to work.

Exemple :

const today = new Date().toISOString();
output.set("now", today);
