Microsoft Excel

Microsoft has announced a new Script buttons feature that is coming soon to Excel on the web. This has been a top-requested feature from users, who will be able to create and add script buttons to a workbook and easily share their Office Scripts with colleagues.

For those unfamiliar, Office scripts allow users to automate their repetitive day-to-day tasks or workflows. Scripts lets Excel users record their actions within a workbook and save them to be used later or shared with others.

To add a new script button to a workbook, you will need to navigate to the Automate tab and choose your desired script. Click the More options (…) menu available in the All Scripts pane, and choose the Add button option. Once done, you will see a button in the workbook that runs the associated script.

Microsoft says the Script buttons feature is currently rolling out in preview to all Microsoft 365 commercial or educational subscribers on the web. To get started with Office scripts, we invite you to check out the samples and scenarios Microsoft shared on this support page.
