  • Patent number: 11295273
    Abstract: Techniques are described for providing normalized object exposure in a collaborative platform. Implementations provide a collaborative platform to enable multiple users to collaborate to address an issue collectively. The platform enables a user to create a work routine in which objects may be added and manipulated by multiple users. The objects may be normalized through use of a normalized object contract. Tools may be added to the work routine, and linked to objects to apply functionality to the object data of the objects. The tools may also comply with the normalized object contract to be consumable within the platform. Through the contract, objects may exhibit a shared common state such that multiple users and/or processes access the same state for a particular object at any given time in a work routine.

  • Patent number: 11287967
    Abstract: Changes in display area automatically lead to changes in the format used to display graphical content of a list of items such as thumbnails or application icons, for example. A list display controller transitions between scrollable format and fixed format, and transitions between fixed formats with different numbers of display slots. Transitions may be triggered by window resizing, by moving a graphical user interface from one device to another while the application runs, or by switching between landscape and portrait mode, for example. Even when the format is not changed in response to a display area change, graphical content is automatically resized to match changes in the size of the display area containing the graphical content. Format transitions and content resizing help provide a pleasant user experience by maintaining content density with expected usage patterns for a given device, and reduce proliferation of code versions.

  • Patent number: 10911550
    Abstract: On a client computer a request is sent to a server computer to open a first portion of a document. The document is stored at the server computer. The first portion of the document is smaller than the entire document. The request includes information used by the server computer to determine a size of the first portion of the document. The first portion of the document is received from the server computer. A second portion of the document is rendered on a display screen on the client computer. The second portion of the document is a subset of the first portion of the document. When the client computer determines that the user has scrolled a third portion of the document and that more of the document is available at the server computer, a second request is sent to the server computer to open an additional portion of the document.
