  • Patent number: 11836196
    Abstract: Embodiments of the disclosure provide systems and methods for obtaining content for a workspace of a collaboration environment. According to one embodiment, a method for requesting and obtaining a content item for a workspace of a collaboration environment can comprise generating, by a cloud-based collaboration environment system, a content request identifying the content item and metadata for the content item. The requested metadata for the content item can be defined by a requestor of the content item and the content item and the metadata for the content item can be requested from a submitter. The generated content request can be provided by the cloud-based collaboration environment system to a computing device associated with the submitter. In response to the provided request, the content item and the requested metadata for the content item can be obtained by the cloud-based collaboration environment system from the computing device associated with the submitter.

  • Publication number: 20230306133
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products for content management systems. Multiple components are operatively interconnected to carry out operations for establishing a user device trust level. A content management system facilitates interactions between a plurality of user devices and a plurality of shared content objects. The plurality of user devices are network connected to the content management system. One of the user devices issues a request to access a particular one of the content objects. Responsive to the request, a two-step device check is performed before granting access to the particular one of the content objects. A first step of the two-step device check process is based on environmental information, and a second step of the two-step device check process is based at least in part on analysis of the content of the particular one of the content objects. The actual bits of the content object itself are inspected.

  • Publication number: 20230104908
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products for gathering electronic signatures to be applied to collaboration system content objects (e.g., contracts, letters, insurance claims, riders, etc.). A collaboration system monitors changes made to the collaboration system content objects during electronic signature processing. A module of the content management system is configured to associate one or more instances of e-signing metadata to one or more of the stored content objects of the content management system. The e-signing metadata indicates whether or not a particular portion of the one or more of the stored content objects has been e-signed by a designated e-signatory. A collaborator who is not one of the designated e-signatories makes a change to one or more of the stored content objects (e.g., contracts, letters, insurance claims, riders, etc.). The change is remediated on-the-fly and the e-signing process continues without having to restart the e-signing process from the beginning.

  • Publication number: 20230025808
    Abstract: Policy-informed e-signature processing. An electronic signature system (ESS) is interfaced to a content management system (CMS) that stores instances of shared files and coordinates policy-informed interactions with the shared files. Upon detection of an occurrence of an e-signature request event, electronic signature processing is carried out in a manner that observes one or more governance policies that control handling of shared files. When responding to an e-signature request event, the CMS observes the governance policies by issuing an electronic query to a database of parameters, wherein the parameters define metes and bounds of the governance policies. Upon determination that at least some of the governance policies at least potentially apply to the e-signature processing, the ESS and/or the CMS modifies metadata pertaining to one or more workflow objects that are associated with a computer-implemented workflow. The workflow may terminate or be terminated based upon the one or more governance policies.

According to one embodiment, requesting and obtaining one or more content items for a workspace of a collaboration environment can comprise generating a content request identifying the one or more content items and metadata for the one or more content items requested from a submitter. The content request can be provided to a computing device associated with the submitter. A determination can be made as to whether the content item can be submitted anonymously. In response to determining the content items may be submitted anonymously, the content items and the metadata can be obtained while maintaining the anonymity of the submitter.
