I am looking to run an automation or a script. I would prefer to use a button so a script would be better.

Here is the scenario:

  1. I have a table with student information
  2. I have a table where I take daily attendance
  3. I would like to on a daily basis, preferably at the press of a button, copy my list of students from the name field in the students’ table to the name field in the attendance table.

in the attendance table, where I want to paste the name is a linked field to the student table
In the students table I want to copy the primary field

Which students do you want to copy over? Can you show examples with screenshots?

I want to copy all of the students in a view.

So yes, you will need to write a script for that. I don’t have enough time right now to do it here, so if you want me to help you further, please shoot an email to
