  • Publication number: 20190199823
    Abstract: A reservation system associated with an app installed on a user device can be used to regulate access to network-based features of a primary software service offered by the app. Network-based features can include providing access to online content items. Regulating access to these features can prevent overloading the backend service components that provide the network-based features. Growing the user base in a controlled fashion can benefit the user experience. A waitlist with a countdown can be used for users that have installed the app, but who are not yet allowed access to the network-based features of the primary software service. A user interface can display a reservation status (e.g., how many people are in front of the user in line, how many people are behind the user in line, and the like). This can increase user anticipation of the app features and reduce user attrition.

  • Patent number: 10178063
    Abstract: A system and method for synchronizing messages between client application instances and a message service provider includes a connection service communicatively coupled to a plurality of client messaging application instances; a first intermediary transfer layer with an inbound message data queue that queues message updates of a client application instance and an outbound message data queue that queues message updates and notifications from a mailbox service layer; a mailbox service layer communicatively coupled to the connection service through the first intermediary transfer layer; a second intermediary transfer layer with an mailbox message data queue that contains queued message data directed at the mailbox service layer and a message service data queue that contains queued message updates directed at a message service layer; and a message service layer configured for message interactions with an outside message service provider.

  • Publication number: 20180131653
    Abstract: Filtering rules for incoming messages can be dynamically generated by a message management service based on patterns in the user's behavior. The message management service can analyze event records associating user actions with features of messages to detect correlations between message features and resulting actions, including correlations across multiple messaging accounts belonging to the same user. Based on correlations, the message management service can provide a suggested rule to the user's client device, and the user can accept or decline the suggestion.

  • Publication number: 20170302607
    Abstract: A system and method for sorting messages within an interface including providing a navigational menu with at least three menu options of at least three message collections, the menu options ordered according to an ordered horizontal virtual arrangement of a set of message collections; upon receiving user selection of one of the menu options, activating the message collection corresponding to the user selected menu option, which comprises—displaying the message collection of the selected menu option and virtually positioning the remaining set of message collections off screen; within the active message collection of the set of message collections, detecting a gesture swipe in a horizontal direction; selecting a sorting option corresponding to a message collection virtually positioned in the horizontal direction relative to the active message collection; and transferring the message to the message collection of the selected sorting option.

  • Publication number: 20170302603
    Abstract: Generation of filtering rules for incoming messages can be activated by a user through a gesture-based input. When the user activates filtering rule generation, the message management service can cause a user device to display a prompt requesting additional data to be used to generate the filtering rule. The gesture can be a swipe and hold gesture, where the swipe is associated with an action (archiving, deleting, deferring, or adding the message to a list), and the swipe and hold action can activate filtering rule generation associated with the action.

  • Patent number: 9755995
    Abstract: A system and method for managing messages within an application interface that includes receiving a message stream; providing a navigational menu to a set of message streams; detecting an initiated gesture item for at least one message within a view of the navigational menu; tracking gesture-state within a progressive order of gesture-states; identifying an action of the gesture-state wherein the action corresponds to the current view and relative ordering of the navigational menu; and applying the message sorting action on the message according to a final gesture-state.

  • Publication number: 20170187671
    Abstract: Techniques are described for managing drafts of an electronic document (e.g., an electronic note, an electronic message, an electronic calendar invitation, and/or other types of electronic documents) between client devices. Such an electronic document can be composed using different clients, such that composing the document can be continued using different clients. A draft of an electronic document can be stored by clients and/or the message management service as a metadata. A message management service can be implemented as an intermediary computing system to manage a current version of a draft in local storage when a draft is composed using a client device. The message management service can manage version information of a draft that is exists, if any, on each of the client devices. The message management service can synchronize a draft of the message with client devices when a draft is composed using a client device.

  • Patent number: 9479469
    Abstract: Users of a message management service can collaborate to draft a message to a designated recipient. One user can create a draft message and identify one or more other users to collaborate on the draft. The users become authors of the draft, and the draft becomes available to each user through a drafts folder maintained for that user by the service. The users can each edit the draft. The message management service can send the draft as a message to the recipient when one or more of the collaborating users indicates that the draft should be sent. The message can include an indication that it is a collaborative message from all of the authors.
