Don’t overcomplicate this and forget about the Scripting block, because Airtable’s formulas are perfect for your use case and take a fraction of a time to set up. You don’t even have to use VALUE() to do things manually given the existence of datetime_parse, datetime_diff, fromnow, tonow, etc.

JavaScript itself has nothing that comes close to Airtable’s (JS-powered) datation library that formula fields are by now.

Lol, I guess the world kept turning in spite of one vague and hastily written post on a productivity software board, go figure.
