  • Publication number: 20180285323
    Abstract: A networked application and email application were described herein that provide for an intuitive system by which users can participate in collaborative workflow relating to a network document. In one implementation, a system includes a messaging server component to provide messaging services and an application server component to provide a networked application. The application server component interacts with the messaging server component in response to a user command to initiate collaboration on the network document. The interaction with the messaging server component includes providing a link that refers to a version of the network document as created or edited by the user.

  • 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.

  • Publication number: 20180101515
    Abstract: A method of simultaneous multiuser collaborative access to a spreadsheet includes transmitting the spreadsheet to a first device of a first user having a first privilege for a first part that includes a first cell, transmitting the spreadsheet to a second device of a second user having a second privilege for a second part, receiving a first edit of the first cell from the first device, and a second edit of the second cell from the second device, and in response to the first cell and the second cell being different, the first privilege including an edit privilege, and the second privilege including the edit privilege, accepting the first edit, accepting the second edit, forwarding the first edit for display with the first cell at the second device, and providing, to the second device, a real-time visual indication identifying the first user as a last user editing the first part.

  • 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.
