  • Patent number: 11368373
    Abstract: In one disclosed method, a first application accessed by a client device receives an indicator of an action that a second application is configured to take with respect to a third application. The client device accesses a fourth application and presents, based at least in part on the indicator received by the first application, a user interface element for the fourth application. Based at least in part on detecting selection of the user interface element, the client device presents a user interface configured to cause the second application to take the action with respect to the third application in response to a user input. The client device detects the user input to the user interface and causes, based at least in part on the user input, the second application to perform the action with respect to the third application.

  • 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: 11249643
    Abstract: A method and electronic device are provided for displaying a list of executable applications on a split screen. The electronic device includes a display, a memory, and a processor. The memory stores a history including information indicating split-screen areas in which scenes associated with executed applications are respectively displayed in a split-screen mode. In response to execution of an application, the processor displays a first scene associated with the executed application on the display. In response to receiving a signal for entry into the split-screen mode, the processor identifies a first split-screen area for displaying a reduced scene of the first scene, and identifies second and third split-screen areas obtained by dividing a remaining area of the display, other than the first split-screen area, generates a first list of applications, based on the history, and displays the first list in the second split-screen area.
