Script causing bouncing Icon in Dock, fmpa 17

I have a script that runs on our solution 'home' window/layout, on a timer script. It checks statuses for customer tickets in our 3rd party ticket support system. If FileMaker is not active/front app, it bounces the icon in the dock (fmpa 17). Additionally, on my multiple-monitor set-up, it seems to blip/flash a square in one of the monitors.

 

It's not a huge deal, but it is pretty distracting. It is very common for our staff to have the FM solution 'home' window up in the background. No action/interaction is needed for the script.

 

This has been asked before, (FMPA 11 Dock Icon Bouncing During Scripts , Excessive dock bouncing ) but as far as I can see, not in 5+ years, and there were no answers back then, so hoping there may be an update. The one suggestion I've seen, disabling all dock bouncing, not a good option.

 

So, anyone found a way to stop the FM icon in the dock from bouncing when a script runs in FM, especially when no interaction is requested or required?

 

Cheers!
