Early this year I wrote a script1 to help a user organize some sequential events, where one event would start when the previous event ended. Rather than continue to post updates to that original thread, I felt it would be best to start a new one.
This script lets you go from this:

A version that will work in an Airtable automation is coming soon… :winking_face:
1 While I used to develop scripts like this for free from time to time when I was becoming acquainted with Airtable’s development environment, custom development now comes with a price tag. I’ll continue to offer free support for this script as best I can, but if you’re looking for any kind of custom script development, please message me directly to discuss my current rate.

WOWOWOWOWOW!!! This is a GAME CHANGER for planning events. Thank you so so so much @Justin_Barrett!! I just put this into my run of show base, and hours of tedious/error-prone work just got reduced to a press of a button. I am so grateful!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Welcome to the community, @Niruban! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Thanks for reaching out! I saw that you also pinged me directly via my website, so I’ll reserve the more direct part of my reply to an email, while also trying to cover your general question:
There are two main ways that the script could auto-execute:
The latter is definitely possible, but would take some significant development time.
The former is also possible, but aside from the requirement that your base must be in a Pro-plan workspace or higher (required to run automation script actions), the tricky part is the trigger mechanism. You mentioned two options for triggering a refresh, both of which have their own unique problems:

Better late than never, but did the 'When even times are changed' workaround ever surface?
