  • Publication number: 20190250868
    Abstract: To enable prompt presentation of a user interface that displays documents that other users have accessed or edited, distribution of document activity indicators is performed in a proactive manner such that the document activity indicators are already available at a time when such a user interface is to be presented. Document activity triggers the creation of corresponding document activity identifiers, which are distributed to the workspaces of one or more users in accordance with document activity itself, the type of activity, the user performing the activity, a user who initially created the document, or combinations thereof. When another user utilizes a content creation computer application program, the activity by other users is selectively reflected within the user interface presented by such a content creation computer application program.
