How to know if Zotero is processing a command

I am using Word on a macbook

Often I will select refresh or add a bibliography and Zotero doesn’t seem to respond. Sometimes this is because it is taking a while. Is there some indicator on the website or on the Zotero tab of my document that shows that it has received a command is currently processing it— so that I don’t have to press the button again to see if it is working? Am I missing something? Is a button greyed out when it is doing this? Thanks

    Just to clarify, this doesn't have anything to do with the website. The Word plugin interacts with the Zotero program, not zotero.org.

    There's a progress bar when inserting a citation, but we're limited in what sorts of feedback we can provide, and refreshing and adding a bibliography don't show a progress bar. You just have to wait for activity in the document to stop or for the bibliography to appear. Don't press the buttons twice — clicks aren't ignored, so if nothing has happened yet, it's almost certainly still processing.
