  • Publication number: 20240187483
    Abstract: Examples of the present disclosure describe systems and methods for establishing a persistent connection between file attachments uploaded to cloud storage and associated electronic communications. An electronic communication including an attached file may be stored and presented in a communication application user interface that includes interactive functions, such as edit and save functions. Upon selection of an interactive function, a copy of the file may be uploaded to a cloud storage location and, in some examples, opened in a productivity application. A link to the file at the cloud storage location may be stored as a property of the file that is stored with the electronic communication. Resultantly, a connection may be maintained between the file at the cloud storage location and the electronic communication. Based on this connection, the copy of the file at the cloud storage location may be opened upon a subsequent selection of an interactive function.

  • Patent number: 11687538
    Abstract: Systems and methods directed to grouping and displaying query results from multiple data stores are described. More specifically, a plurality of data stores to search utilizing a received keyword may be determined, where each data store includes a different search index. A data store specific query for each data store is generated such that results from each data store are received based on the respective data store specific query, where results from each data store include a plurality of file identifiers identifying files located at the respective data store that are relevant to the keyword. In addition results from each data store are grouped into a plurality of groups based on metadata associated with each file identifier of the plurality of file identifiers. The plurality of groups are ranked based on a relevancy associated with each group and information associated with a ranked group is displayed at a user interface.
