  • Patent number: 10802838
    Abstract: In some implementations, a computing device can present dynamic graphical user interface previews of an application on a display of the computing device. For example, cached graphical user interface (GUI) content can be dynamically generated in response to receiving application data update information for the corresponding application. The computing device can dynamically determine a portion of the cached GUI content to present on a display of the computing device. For example, the cached GUI content can be an image that is larger than the display of the computing device. The computing device can generate a GUI preview based a portion of the cached GUI content that fits on the display of the computing device based on an indication of which portion of the cached GUI content the user wishes to view and present the preview on the display of the computing device.

  • Patent number: 10795529
    Abstract: A screen sharing session between a participating computer and a presenting computer can be established. A copy of a graphical user interface screen from the presenting computer can be presented within a display on the participating computer. A selection of the sub-portion of the copy of the graphical user interface screen from the participating computer can be received. Boundaries of the sub-portion can be determined and can be transmitted from the participating computer to the presenting computer. Responsive to receiving the boundaries, the remotely located computer can define the sub-portion of the graphical user interface screen of the presenting computer. The defined sub-portion of the graphical user interface screen can be conveyed over a network from the presenting computer to the participating computer without conveying data for other portions of the graphical user interface screen.

  • Patent number: 10732810
    Abstract: Various systems and methods are provided for accessing and traversing one or more complex data structures and generating a functional user interface that can enable non-technical users to quickly and dynamically generate detailed reports (including tables, charts, and/or the like) of complex data including time varying attributes and time-series data. The user interfaces are interactive such that a user may make selections, provide inputs, and/or manipulate outputs. In response to various user inputs, the system automatically calculates applicable time intervals, accesses and traverses complex data structures (including, for example, a mathematical graph having nodes and edges), calculates complex data based on the traversals and the calculated time intervals, displays the calculated complex data to the user, and/or enters the calculated complex data into the tables, charts, and/or the like. The user interfaces may be automatically updated based on a context selected by the user.

  • Patent number: 10691299
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for the efficient display of hierarchical datasets using high-water mark scrolling. Certain techniques allow for the creation of simple, intuitive, and computationally inexpensive user interfaces for displaying hierarchical data sets. According to some embodiments, a defined number of items of a hierarchical list are presented in a hierarchical user interface module. This defined number of items may be referred to as a “high-water mark” value. When one of the items having associated child items (that are not currently displayed) is selected, one or more presented items in the hierarchical list are replaced with a corresponding one or more of the child items, thus maintaining a same number of displayed list items (i.e., the high-water mark number of displayed list items).

  • Patent number: 10671337
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide systems and methods for automatic or adaptive sizing of a customer service agent's co-browsing view of a contact's user interface. According to one embodiment, at least a portion of the agent's interface in which the customers interface is presented can be resized so that the agent's view matches the customer's view, e.g., one-to-one. This sizing of the agent's view may be performed automatically, when the co-browsing view of the customer's interface is first presented to the agent or, according to one embodiment, may be toggled on and off by the agent, e.g., by the agent selecting a button or other control presented in the agent's interface. In this way, embodiments allow the agent to see exactly the same view of the web site as the customer sees in the customer's interface regardless of the device or screen size used by the customer.
