With the introduction of spill formulas, I believe that this request will get less important over time.

Thanks for your comment and sorry for the delay. The link you provided actually has a very good parcial solution for the issue.
It would be great to persist not only a task pane in a document, but the whole Addin! That way when opening a document, we would have a complete set of its own ribbon buttons.
By the way, document-level addins are more important! Read this for an example, please: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43139155/is-it-possible-to-create-a-document-level-excel-customization-with-office-addins

Yes, it would be great.
This would cover this scenario: suppose the user selects only 10 cells, so an addin command will not take long to execute and I don't need to disturb him with a task pane in his screen because it'll be fast.
However, there may be cases where he selects an entire column and I need to show him a progress bar and additional information (like cancel button). So, I would need to call my generic progress bar task pane. After the progress bar finishes, it would be great to close it automatically.
Hello! the API is in preview now! Make sure to have the latest insiders fast and use our Beta CDN, more info on this here https://aka.ms/excelapiopenspec
Here is a sample code snippet using the API
