I'm attempting to use update a Column [Days Since Last Contact] by calculating the different between =TODAY() and a Column [Date of Last Contact].

I've been trying to use [Day Since Last Contact] as a calculated column, but the list doesn't update this column unless the item has been edited.

The goal is to have the Days Since column update every time someone loads the page. Any idea how to go about this? I can't see to find a way to attach javascript to the list for this purpose.
