Hello! 

I wrote a script that creates multiple days worth of events people can book at a time, but it takes into account some settings to determine how long those slots are, when the lunch break is so it wont create a slot then, etc. I'm also making an automation to create a new day's worth of these every day at midnight, so that after we run the manual script once we can leave the rest of it to happen automatically. I'm wondering if there's any way I could grab the settings from the manual script for use in the automation.

No. An automation script does not have access to the settings of a scripting extension script. An automation does not have access to any extensions.

You can manually design the automation script to take input variables that are similar to values set in script settings.

Thank you! For some reason, I thought the input variables had to be values from previous automation steps, I didn't realize you could type in anything. 🤦🏾‍♀️
