  • Hi vanikalyani,

    I try to test this thing on my side and find that currently it is not possible to do this.

    both addin load and work independently.

    so we can't control it from other addin.

    then also I try to make some test.

    I try to create task pane addin first.

    then in the same project I create content addin.

    when I run the project both addin load in individual workbook.

    so to load them in single workbook.

    I try to add a hyperlink of Home.html page of content addin.

    when I click the hyper link it open the content addin in taskpane.

    but not on the sheet.

    but when you deploy that addin this reference will not available.

    so currently there is no way to load one addin from another addin.

    Regards

    Deepak

  • Hi vanikalyani,

    you just need to add HTML button in HREF Tag.

    but notice that it will load that addin in the task pane.

    not on the sheet area.
