There is a script for my Google spreadsheet so that every change in a cell is indicated by a red color marker. When users with a Google account that I have shared to the spreadsheet make changes, the script is executed. However, when a user without a Google account accesses it via the share link, the script does not run. What settings do I need to choose so that the script will run that way?

I use two different scripts:

    function aktiveZeileInAndereTabelleKopieren(){
  // Aktives Tabellenblatt
  var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSheet();
  // Aktiver Bereich und auslesen der Zeile
  var row = sheet.getActiveCell().getRow();
  // Tabellenblattname wo die Daten gespeichert werden sollen
  var zielTabellenName="Blocktermine";
  // Auf die Zieltabelle zugreifen
  var zielTabelle=SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getSheetByName(zielTabellenName);
  // Letzte Zeile der Zieltabelle auslesen
  var letzteZeileVonZielTabelle=zielTabelle.getLastRow();

Secondly i use a simple on edit script:

function onEdit(e) {
  var color="red";  // Rot
  var range = e.range;
var s = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSheet();
if( s.getName() == "Tabellenblatt1" ) { 
var r = s.getActiveCell();
if( r.getColumn() == 3 ) { 
  var nextCell = r.offset(0, 7);
  var newDate = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), 
  "GMT+2:00", "dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm:ss");
if( r.getColumn() == 1 ) { 
  var nextCell = r.offset(0, 9);
  var newDate1 = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), 
  "GMT+2:00", "dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm:ss");
if( r.getColumn() == 2 ) { 
  var nextCell = r.offset(0, 8);
  var newDate2 = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), 
  "GMT+2:00", "dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm:ss");
if( r.getColumn() == 3 ) { 
  var nextCell = r.offset(0, 7);
  var newDate3 = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), 
  "GMT+2:00", "dd.MM.YYYY HH:mm:ss");

My recollection is that simple triggers run fine for anonymous users. Your script will fail if any of the target ranges are protected. Check the executions log for errors.
