  • Publication number: 20210099502
    Abstract: The present technology provides a system wherein context provided in a message in which a content item is shared is preserved in a database that is linked to the content item. Additionally, to help users that are sending a content item provide better context when they are sharing a content item, the present technology provides a sharing user interface that encourages the first user to provide helpful context. Additionally, the present technology provides a sharing interface that can present shared content items along with the context in which the content item was shared.

  • Publication number: 20200272602
    Abstract: The disclosed technology addresses the need in the art for providing workflow controls to shared content items stored on client devices, and enforcing content item check outs or content item locks for shared content items stored and accessed on client devices. The present technology further includes automatically locking a shared content item that is edited on a client device so that other team members cannot modify the content item. Accordingly, the present technology improves upon existing systems that provide workflow controls such as file check-in and checkout functionality by permitting users to access content items directly from the file system of their client device, and by providing automatic checkout and check-in functionality.
