So many developers in the Chrome Extensions or other tools with google Sheets and Excel write horrible code that will repeat API function calls to OPENAI or other apis every time you change cells or change the sheet or refresh the sheet.

Here is an example.  I cannot even refresh this Google Spreadsheet now because so many api calls are happening on the backend.  It seems like 50% of the extensions or tools I have tried with Google Sheets and Excel suffer from this which really sucks because especially if you are paying for the API access then you are not ONLY wasting your money and OPENAI resources, you are also killing the environment using more compute over and over again that is COMPLETELY unnecessary and abusive really.

Do not have your application do this:
