  • Patent number: 10216709
    Abstract: A unified messaging platform is described which provides a comprehensive environment for collaboration, file sharing, and project management. In aspects, the unified messaging platform is organized based on one or more teams or projects, where each team or project is further organized by customizable categories. A user interface is provided for ready access to information related to each category (e.g., communications, files, tasks, work product, etc.), which information is automatically and seamlessly synchronized across the platform such that each team member remains abreast of the current progress and status of a project. For instance, cooperation and collaboration are facilitated by features such as inline replies, which enable team members to comment on and reply to specific items within a single synchronized version of a message.

  • Publication number: 20190005004
    Abstract: A unified messaging platform is described which provides a comprehensive environment for collaboration, file sharing, and project management. In one aspects, a system includes hardware processing circuitry configured to receive a message, the message identifying a user via a user callout, identify a device associated with the user, identify a device type of the identified device and one or more applications on the identified device, generate, based on the device type and the one or more applications, a notification including machine-executable instructions that, when accessed and executed by the device, cause the one or more applications to display a notice about the user callout, and send the notification to the device.

  • Publication number: 20180337877
    Abstract: Disclosed are embodiments of a unified messaging application. In one aspects a system includes hardware processing circuitry and hardware memory comprising instructions that when executed configure the hardware processing circuitry to perform operations. The operations include receiving a message comprising a message body and an attachment, the attachment including a first portion and a second portion of content, extracting the first portion of content from the attachment, displaying the extracted first portion in the message body of the message, receiving, within the message body, an edit to the extracted first portion displayed in the message body, and synchronizing the edited first portion with the first portion of content in the attachment.

  • Publication number: 20180260366
    Abstract: Described herein is a user interface that enables individuals that access a collaborative workspace environment to add subsections to a workspace in a canvas and provide and associate tagging notifications to the various subsections of the workspace. Further, the user interface includes another canvas that displays the tagging notifications and any associated text. Thus, any comments, text, or other content that is provided in the tagging notification is also reflected in the second canvas—regardless of which subsection the messages pertains to.
