Using triggers to move a scrolling panel in Storyline 2

I cannot select a scrolling panel as an object for a trigger. I'm trying to have a scrolling panel move when a button is clicked. And return to its previous position when it loses focus.

I'd like to do so via motion paths or JavaScript for UX purposes. I know it can be done with an entrance animation and the use of a show layer trigger, but that solution lacks the return animation.

I have experience with JavaScript and can accomplish the animation with code but do not know how to target the object directly (ie. by name).

Sounds like javascript will be the solution, is there a way to target the object?

example

var scrollPanel = document.getElementById("scrollingMenu");

or

var scrollPanel = document.getElementsByName("scrollingMenu");

or maybe via jQuery? Where the scrolling panel is "element"?

$("element");
