Hi Reda,

Your requirement can be achievable by using the fileMenuItemSelect event as like as below.




 function fileMenuItemSelect(args) {

    console.log(args.item.text); // returns the selected item text

Hi Reda,

Currently, we don’t have any event for creating the new workbook in spreadsheet. And we need to check the feasibility of this requirement. So, we will update you the further details on October 12th, 2022. We appreciate your patience until then.

Hi Reda,

Before we proceed further, please share your requirement for call back event while creating new workbook. Is there any customization need to be done in your side? If yes, please share the detailed description of your requirement based on that we will check and provide you a better solution quickly.
