  • Patent number: 10440023
    Abstract: Users of a content management system (CMS) collaboratively work together to create, review, and edit the content items in the shared folder. The CMS provides a messaging service that allows the users to exchange messages and automatically recommends chat groups to users based on their shared folders and a level of collaboration determined for each content item in a shared folder. To determine collaboration, the CMS obtains user interactions performed by the users on content items in the shared folder and determines a collaboration value for the shared folder based on a function of weight frequencies of user interactions for each content item. If the collaboration value is greater than a threshold collaboration value, the CMS recommends that the user create a chat group with the users of the shared folder.

  • Patent number: 9071870
    Abstract: A system and method for viewing material displayed on an electronic device. When a user desires to view a document, only a portion of which is viewable on a display at a given moment, the portion is displayed on the display as a primary image. A secondary image is then generated, with the secondary image including the portion and additional material of the document not part of the primary image. The secondary image is superimposed over the primary image on the display when a user scrolls through the document such that both the secondary image and the primary image are visible to the user.
