Hide or close the script pane when users initiate a script from a button

New Contributor



I'm using a number of buttons to trigger excel online scripts in a shared workbook.


But, I don't want the users to keep seeing the scripting pane popup every time they click a button. 


Anyone know of a way to close/hide the script pane when the script starts (or finishes) or prevent it from opening?

Hi @MattG! PM from the Office Scripts team here This currently isn't possible though we definitely hear you that it can be frustrating to see the script pane pop up every time a user clicks a button. Out of curiosity, what would you envision the ideal experience to look like?

Thanks for asking and for this feedback!
