  • Patent number: 10783012
    Abstract: Various of the disclosed embodiments provide systems and methods for efficiently recalling data on a single device and for efficiently transitioning data between devices. Users may use graphical user interfaces on one or more client devices to manage “buckets” of data. These data collections may be stored locally on the client devices and on a server storage system. In some embodiments, the system may synchronize bucket collections between client devices. Bucket data may also be cached locally on the client device to facilitate ready user access and efficient workflow. Various embodiments may be used, for example, in collaborative work environments to readily store and exchange data assets between team members.

  • Patent number: 10768774
    Abstract: System, method, and computer program product embodiments describe back navigation features of a page. In an embodiment, a display device displays the page in a first layout, selected from a set of layouts associated with the page, for displaying a first content. The display device navigates from the first layout to one or more subsequent layouts, each subsequent layout selected from the set of layouts. The subsequent layouts include a second layout that concurrently displays the first content and a second related content in separate panels of the second layout. The display device stores a navigation sequence from the first layout through each of the subsequent layouts. Responsive to receiving a command to return to the first layout, the display device selects the first layout, from the stored navigation sequence, to navigate from the second layout to the first layout. Then, the page is rendered using the selected first layout.

  • Patent number: 10747556
    Abstract: In an example, a registration request is received from an application provider, the registration request including one or more application programming interfaces (APIs) providing software code for interfacing with a cloud-based application provided by the application provider. The APIs are scanned to identify potential events triggered during execution of the cloud-based application. A graphical user interface (GUI) is caused to be rendered for a customer who has subscribed to the cloud-based application, the GUI providing a first area in which one or more of the potential events are rendered along with a selectable GUI element for each of the rendered one or more potential events and a second area in which the customer may type or upload one or more functions to be executed by the cloud-based application upon triggering of one or more corresponding potential events that have been selected by the customer via their corresponding selectable GUI elements.

  • Patent number: 10684763
    Abstract: A method for controlling display of graphical information in a display window is presented. A scroll region, i.e. a scroll bar, is provided with a “memory” that indicates to the user where to return after scrolling away from a current position within, e.g., a large document. This is advantageous in that it relieves the user from having to be very attentive to the scrolling content of the window, which means that the scrolling can be performed more quickly when compared to prior art solutions.
