We’re thrilled by all the enthusiasm for the scripting block so far, and are really excited to see what you’ve all been building! To that end, we’re going to have one more scripting block contest (for now :winking_face: ). Unlike our beta contests, which were a little more focused, this one is totally open ended: submit your very best new script. Just one twist - this time, we’d love to see it in action with a short walkthrough screen recording (we recommend free tools like loom, but there are plenty out there to choose from.)
Similar details to last time:
Create a new thread with your script and video walkthrough, and post the link as a reply here by 5:00PM (PST) on Monday to be considered.
Everyone who enters will get something for participating, and the winner will walk away with a $250 Amazon gift card and some fun Airtable swag.
Follow best practices for open sourcing a script as much as possible, including:
input.recordAsyncto avoid references to specific fields or tables that might be different for other users. If you do reference specific fields or tables directly in your script, we recommend pulling them out into variables and moving them to the top of the script so others can change them to match their own bases.
That’s it! Happy building!

EDIT: I updated the script to be able to handle more than 50 records in batches, and updated my post and Universe example as well. - @Jason @Zoelle_Egner

Trying to get this in by the deadline for the contest.
I will try to edit my post later to make it sound better.

We’re excited to announce that @Jeremy_Oglesby is the winner of this scripting block challenge! We chose this script for a few reasons:
Thank you to everyone who submitted a script! And, we’re looking forward to more challenges (HINT: keep an eye out over in blocks madness later today) with this block.
