    I am not familiar with how the TrackVia API's work, but calculated fields should be calculating when data is added/updated.

    I do know that Apps Scripts do not run during import and/or bulk updates, so perhaps this is the same scenario. For this, I've had to update each record separately to get the script to run.

    You may want to load a default view (all records). The system is supposed to run any calculations each time a view is loaded, unless you are using Triggered Fields, in which case you are back to updating each record separately.

    I'll be watching for replies on this as I am interested in this also.
