Trying to Figure Out Scripts

Options

Hey all! I must preface this by specifying that I am a complete newb when it comes to Smartsheet. I know the very absolutely basics, but am now trying to learn more about it.

The issue I'm trying to figure out is keeping track of multiple packages I send out a week. I wanted to see if there's a way to write a script where it would update the status in a cell when the package status changes. Would this be possible? From what I've seen so far, this can be possible in Excel with a script, but I use Smartsheet more.
