office scripts

Is there any plan to move office scripts into individual workbooks like VBA is on the desktop app? The current setup of saving them on an individuals OneDrive is cumbersome. Anybody who already has permission to use a document, also has to be granted rights to use the script, which is a pain in an office setting with many people using the same document. It's an even bigger pain when they have to update their password every couple weeks. Having them saved off the work book also slows running any script down, as it has to load the script before it can run.

    Hi Kenneth, thank you for sharing your feedback with us! At this time, we don't have plans to store Office Scripts within individual workbooks, but we hear your pain with permissions, password updates, and performance. We'll keep this feedback in mind as we continue to improve Office Scripts!
