  • Publication number: 20180330329
    Abstract: In general, the disclosure is directed to a computing device configured to identify and display information determined to be relevant to a current task. The computing device receives information associated with a content page for a second application, at least a portion of which is included in a graphical user interface. The computing device determines, based on the information, a context of the second application. The computing device determines, based on the context, a set of objects for each of one or more applications related to the second application. The computing device generates a content page for the first application including graphical indications of at least one object from at least one of the respective sets of objects. The computing device outputs, for display, at least a portion of the content page for the first application within the graphical user interface.

  • Publication number: 20180101620
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a spreadsheet application that is executable using a spreadsheet program; converting the spreadsheet application into a data file that defines characteristics of a networked version of the spreadsheet application that was converted from the spreadsheet application by applying permissions that are set in the spreadsheet application and not applied in the spreadsheet application, wherein the characteristics are defined based on the permissions and include information defining cells of the networked version of the spreadsheet application that are displayable to a user of the networked version of the spreadsheet application; and transmitting the data file to a server to make the data file available to network users as the networked version of the spreadsheet application.

  • Patent number: 9864812
    Abstract: A networked version of a spreadsheet application can be automatically created from an existing “conventional” spreadsheet. In one implementation, a server may obtain a data file, where the data file represents a networked version of a spreadsheet application that was converted from the “conventional” application and the data file defines characteristics of the networked version of the spreadsheet application including logic and interactivity attributes of cells in the networked version of the spreadsheet application. A remote request may be received from a client to access the networked version of the spreadsheet application. In response, the server may transmit a document to the client that represents a portion of the networked version of the spreadsheet application that the interactivity attributes specify as being displayable to the client.

  • Patent number: 9852120
    Abstract: A distributed spreadsheet application executes at a server and a client in a network. The networked spreadsheet application can generally be used without requiring a user to install any specific spreadsheet software prior to using the application. In one implementation, the spreadsheet application may include a client engine that executes within browser programs of a plurality of client computing devices and server logic. The server logic may be configured to distribute the client engines to the plurality of client computing devices of the spreadsheet application when requested through the browser programs of each of the plurality of client computing devices. The server logic synchronizes a single spreadsheet document that is simultaneously open at the plurality of client computing devices.

  • Patent number: 9292479
    Abstract: In one implementation, a computer-implemented method includes receiving a request to access an electronic document collection that integrates a plurality of electronic sub-documents that are each of one of a plurality of defined document types. The method also includes retrieving information that is associated with the document collection, wherein the retrieved information identifies a first sub-document of the plurality of sub-documents using a first non-address identifier, and identifying a first software application that is configured to provide access to the first sub-document. The method additionally includes initiating a first connection with a first server that causes execution of the identified first software application and that, using the first non-address identifier, provides access to the first sub-document.
