  • Publication number: 20220311631
    Abstract: Management of web conference assets in a content management system. At the conclusion of a web conferencing session, an event is raised at the content management system. Various web conference assets (e.g., recordings) and web conference parameters are analyzed in conjunction with content management system metadata. Based on the analysis, one or more actions to perform on the web conference assets are determined. The content management system metadata may include user profile information of at least one web conference participant. Rules and/or a classification model that considers then-current conditions at the content management system are used singly, or in combination, to determine action characteristics and/or labels such as a retention period or security classifications to apply to the web conference assets. The web conference assets are stored in a hierarchical directory at the content management system. The hierarchy of the directory is derived from aspects of the web conferencing facility.

  • Patent number: 11368538
    Abstract: A web conferencing system is hosted in a first computing environment and is Internet-connected with a content management system hosted in a second computing environment. Upon detection of an occurrence of a file or folder drag-and-drop event at the web conferencing system, the file or folder corresponding to the drag-and-drop event is made available to the content management system. A directory hierarchy of a file system of the content management system is generated on-the-fly. The content management system initiates operations to retrieve and store a copy of the file or folder into the director hierarchy. Access permissions corresponding to locations within the directory hierarchy where the copy of the file or folder is stored are established such that users of the web conferencing system who were not users of the content management system can access the copy of the file or folder that is stored in the content management system.

  • Patent number: 11210610
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing improved content previews of files stored in an online content management system with collaboration environment are disclosed. An optimized PDF rendering engine is used to reproduce the appearance of previewed PDF documents. The present disclosure includes a method of evaluating the available system tools for converting files from an existing format to a target format to determine the optimum tool(s) to use for the conversion process of a file.

  • Patent number: 9519526
    Abstract: A system and method for providing a file management service for collaboration is disclosed. The method for providing a file management service for collaboration, which may be implemented on a system, includes, for example, providing a client through which a user accesses a file through the file management service, further providing, by the file management service via the client, the user with collaboration capability of the file with other users, and/or controlling editing of the file by other users based on whether it is specified as being shared by the user. In one embodiment, the file management service further enables integration of a third-party service with the file management service and the third-party service is accessible for use with the file via the file management service.

  • Patent number: 9063912
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing content previews of files, including video files, stored in an online content management system with collaboration environment are disclosed. Permission to view a preview of a file is determined based upon access permissions associated with the file and/or workspace in which the file is stored and the access level of the requesting user. The system can also provide a progress indicator indicating the approximate time remaining to process the file for previewing based upon averages of times for processing previous files having similar attributes. In one aspect, embodiments of the present disclosure include a method, which may be implemented on a system, for downsampling a video file to decrease the processing time for providing a preview.

  • Patent number: 8583619
    Abstract: A system and method for integrating a plurality of web-based applications with a web-based file management system. The web-based application may provide a service to the users of the web-based file management system, such that the web-based application can interact with the files of said users. The integration of the service of the web-based application with the web-based file management system is achieved through a simple web interface to configure the service, without the developer of the web-based application having to change the application programming interface (API) of the application. The user of the web-based file management system may add services of a plurality of available web-based applications and use these services with one or more files that are stored on the web-based file management system.
