Hi,

would it be possible to define a custom formula? For instance I want to make one that generates a UUID that can be used across a variety of platforms.

Thanks in advance

You cannot create a JavaScript formula. Formula fields are limited to Airtable’s set of functions and operators.

You can create a custom script in JavaScript and run it from a button or run it in an automation.

Yup, but having an automation recalculate a field every xyz interval would get you close to that functionality, so long as you’re fine with asynchronity.
