I would like to use a scripting automation to check if a record exists. i.e. Does John Doe exist already in the Name column?

The results should be simply yes or no.

I’m not great at scripting and am looking for some fast track help!

Welcome to the community, @Cameron_Mason1! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: This can be done without a script. Use the “Find records” action to search for a record with a matching name. In a conditional branch, execute the actions you desire if the count of records found from the “Find records” action is 1.
