I am receiving a cryptic error when attempting to create a record using the code below:

// Change this name to use a different table
let table = base.getTable("Touchpoints");
//let ctable = base.getTable("Contact");

// Prompt the user to pick a record 
// If this script is run from a button field, this will use the button's record instead.
let record = await input.recordAsync('Select a record to use', table);

let billTillString = await input.textAsync('Bill Orders till which date? (format YYYY-MM-DD)');
//let notes = await input.textAsync('Any Notes to mention');

let billTillDate = new Date(billTillString);

/*
//newRecs[0]['id'] = 'recDYGIT7fj80tTAH';
//let namer = new Array('recDYGIT7fj80tTAH');

//let Contact = record.getCellValueAsString("Contact"); // Contact RecordID
//let recordID = record.getCellValueAsString("Contact RecordID");

//console.log("ID is: " + recordID);
*/
await table.createRecordAsync({
        'Start Date/Time': billTillDate,
        'Contact': [{id: 'recI7YlIh4jJkUiYT'}],
        'Notes': 'Sample Note'
    }); 

/*

console.log(billTillDate);


if (record) {
    // Customize this section to handle the selected record
    // You can use record.getCellValue("Field name") to access
    // cell values from the record
    console.log(record.id);
} else {
    output.text('No record was selected');
} */

It's also INCREDIBLY slow - any input or ideas would be much appreciated. Thank you!

P.S. I'm just trying to create a new record with a date which is inputted along with a linked record.

You don't say the field type for your {Start Date/Time} field, but I'm guessing that it is a date field. You need to convert the date to an ISO 8601 string, per the documentation.

 

'Start Date/Time': billTillDate.toISOString(),

This issue is fixed, I updated to the following code and it's all working now 🙂

 

let table = base.getTable("Touchpoints");
let cTable = base.getTable("Contact");

let trecord = await input.recordAsync('Select a record to use', table);




let callBack = await input.textAsync('What is the callback date? (YYYY-MM-DD)');

let notes = await input.textAsync('Include any callback notes');

let callDate = new Date(callBack);
let recordID = trecord.getCellValueAsString("Email");



let query = await cTable.selectRecordsAsync();

// Replace "example@example.com" with the email address you want to search for
let emailToSearch = trecord.getCellValueAsString("Email");

let record = query.records.find(record => record.getCellValue("Email") === emailToSearch);

if (record) {
  // Do something with the record, such as log it to the console
  await base.getTable('Touchpoints').createRecordAsync({
        'Start Date/Time': callDate,
        'Notes': notes,
        'Type': { name: 'Call Back' },
        'Contact': [{id: record.id}]
    });
  console.log(record);
} else {
  console.log(`Record with email ${emailToSearch} not found.`);
}

Fore more context on the crash that happens on a linked record

Thank you so much for your reply!

Unfortunately even when removing all references to Date the app still crashes. Video below provides more context:

Thank you so much! This did end up working - much appreciated!
