  • Publication number: 20180196644
    Abstract: Rendering an application is provided. An application script file having scripts corresponding to functions of an application may be retrieved. The application script file may be decomposed into a first script file and a second script file. The first script file may be created by removing at least one script corresponding to at least one function determined for deferred rendering from the application script file. The second script file may be created to include the removed at least one script. The first script file may be sent to a user device to be executed to provide an initial render of the application. The second script file then may be transmitted to the user device for execution of the removed at least one script as part of a deferred rendering of the application.

  • Patent number: 10007554
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for implementing information management applications. In an implementation, at least a portion of an information management application is embodied in program instructions that include various task modules and a scheduler module. In some implementations the program instructions are written in accordance with a single threaded programming language, such as JavaScript or any other suitable single threaded language. When executed, each task module returns control to the scheduler module upon completing. The scheduler module identifies to which of the plurality of task modules to grant control based at least in part on a relevance of each task module to a user interaction.

  • Publication number: 20180089633
    Abstract: A meeting service with cost based meeting time and location optimization is provided. In some examples, costs may be assigned to time fragments in individual users' calendars based on time of day, day of week, other events in the schedules, user behavior, and external factors. In case of a single meeting scheduling, a deadline for the meeting may also be factored into the cost. A scheduling agent may auto-negotiate among attendees of a meeting to determine a lowest cost time for the meeting. In other examples, calendars of multiple users may be optimized on a regular basis or on-demand by re-negotiating existing meetings. User preferences and organizational policies may be used to provide constraints or adjust cost values. Historic data and acceptance of suggested meeting times may be used to learn and adjust a meeting scheduling model. In further examples, similar approaches may be applied to determine suitable meeting locations.

  • Patent number: 9886290
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for facilitating information exchange services. In at least one implementation, a request originated from an execution environment is received at an application source. The request is a request to load an application in the execution environment from the source. A user associated with the request is identified and a script is generated based on loading preferences associated with the user. The script is then communicated to the execution environment so that the application can be loaded in accordance with the preferences.

  • Publication number: 20180013607
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for implementing information management applications. In an implementation, an application embodied in program instructions stored on one or more computer readable storage media comprises components and a control component. The components communicate requests to invoke others of the components. The control component handles the requests by at least determining whether or not any component identified by the requests has already been downloaded or is yet to be downloaded. The control component invokes the component when already downloaded and retrieves the component when not yet downloaded.

  • Patent number: 9521171
    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for facilitating information exchange services. In at least one implementation, an information exchange service processes communications indicative of a plurality of actions taken with respect to a plurality of derivative versions of a service item associated with a source version of the service item to determine which action of the plurality of actions controls. The information exchange service identifies a modification to apply to data associated with the source version of the service item to reflect the action determined to control and initiates communications indicative of the modification with which to update data associated with each of the plurality of derivative versions of the service item.

  • Publication number: 20160205186
    Abstract: Systems and methods for synchronizing conversation data between a client and a server in a networked computing environment. A data structure associated with an e-mail conversation is encoded and shuttled between the client and the server. When received at the server, the data structure is analyzed to determine changes within the e-mail conversation. The data structure is subsequently modified to reflect or include only those changes to minimize the amount of information transferred between the server and client.

    Abstract: Provided herein are systems, methods, and software for facilitating information exchange services. In at least one implementation, a request originated from an execution environment is received at an application source. The request is a request to load an application in the execution environment from the source. A user associated with the request is identified and a script is generated based on loading preferences associated with the user. The script is then communicated to the execution environment so that the application can be loaded in accordance with the preferences.

  • Patent number: 8661082
    Abstract: A message extraction system is described that extracts a previous message from a current message in a conversation thread. The message extraction system receives a current message and identifies a previous message candidate within the current message. The system determines a checksum of the previous message candidate and compares the determined checksum to a previously stored checksum of the previous message. If the two checksums match, the system extracts the previous message from the reply message rather than from the server.

  • Patent number: 8225219
    Abstract: Unique content in interrelated email messages is identified and duplicate content filtered out for user friendly display of a flow of exchange within the interrelated messages. Follow-on messages such as replies or forwards are compared to the original message to determine which part of a follow-on message is not present in the original message and is a unique part of the follow-on message. The comparison includes parsing of the messages to extract user viewable parts determination of which extracted part is the last message part containing unique information. Once the unique message part is determined, message body that excludes everything after the unique part including the headers is be displayed.

  • Publication number: 20090234924
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques of automatically associating messages with conversations. As described in this disclosure, when a messaging application stores a message, the messaging application uses a set of heuristics to identify a conversation associated with the message. After identifying the conversation associated with the message, an interface may be presented that group together messages that are associated with common conversations. Such an interface may enable individuals to quickly locate and read messages associated with a conversation.

  • Publication number: 20090183096
    Abstract: Emails are modeled as conversations, which are stand-alone email artifacts distinct from conventional folders. Conversations are arranged to reference messages, to have properties and an existence of their own, and present messages to a user reflecting the relationships between the messages as part of a conversation. Emails aggregated under a conversation may be assigned conversation related attributes in addition to the distinct attributes of the conversation itself. Conversations may be processed specially based on their characteristics such as being muted, branched into sub-conversations, and the like.
