  • Patent number: 11734494
    Abstract: Example embodiments involve remote creation of a playback queue for an event. An example implementation involves a computing device receiving, via a control interface, input data representing a request to create a playlist for an event at a particular future time and date and a designation of multiple invitees to the event and sending, via a network interface to a cloud computing system, instructions representing the request. The instructions cause the cloud server(s) to send, to multiple second mobile devices corresponding to the multiple invitees, one or more respective invitations to the event. Each invitation indicates: (i) a future time and date for the event and (ii) a link to a web interface including user interface controls to add audio tracks to the playlist for the event. During the event, the computing device causes the playlist to be queued in a queue of a media playback system for playback.

  • Patent number: 11500820
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for synchronizing read-only folders from a cloud-based server. Users can set permissions when sharing folders with other users. The permissions are enforced by client devices of the users downloading content of the folders from the server. A folder at a user's client from the shared domain may include locally modified content and shared content. Based on first permission assigned to a user for the folder, when an indication of a change by a second user to the folder at the server is received, the user's client propagates the change to shared content below the folder in a folder hierarchy at the user's client. To prevent local changes made by the user from being overwritten, the user's client identifies the folder containing locally-modified content as a local content folder not to be synchronized between the plurality of clients.

  • Patent number: 10868784
    Abstract: A collaborative content item includes an ordered set of comment threads that each correspond to a portion of the collaborative content item. When a user requests that a first new comment be displayed, a first comment thread including the first new comment is displayed within a comment interface. When the user interacts with a new comment interface element, a second comment thread including a second new comment is displayed within the comment interface and a count of remaining new comments displayed within the new comment interface element is decremented. The user can also navigate between comment threads by interacting with the comment interface in a first direction (e.g., swiping, scrolling, selecting an interface element) and can navigate within a comment thread by interacting with the comment interface in a second direction.

  • Patent number: 10713429
    Abstract: Provided are methods and systems for joining semi-structured data from the web with relational data in a spreadsheet table using input-output examples. A first sub-task performed by the system learns a string transformation program to transform input rows of a table to URL strings that correspond to the webpages where the relevant data is present. A second sub-task learns a program in a rich web data extraction language to extract desired data from the webpage given the example extractions. Hierarchical search and input-driven ranking are used to efficiently learn the programs using few input-output examples. The learnt programs are then run on the remaining spreadsheet entries to join desired data from the corresponding web pages.

  • Patent number: 10628593
    Abstract: A content management system for collecting files from one or more submitters in a collection folder and recording activities associated with the collection folder. A collector, who generates the collection folder, can invite one or more submitters to submit one or more files to the collection folder. The one or more submitters have limited rights to the collection folder. The limited rights can include uploading rights and prohibiting a submitter from viewing files that other submitters associated with the collection folder submitted. Thus, the collection folder is able to store files from the one or more submitters, but prevent them from viewing other's submissions.

  • Patent number: 10621278
    Abstract: The invention comprises a system and method using a software application (“app”) running on portable computing devices to download presentations from a central server as thumbnails and manipulate the presentations in thumbnail format. The thumbnails can provide a storybook-type presentation that takes much less memory on a portable device than full native presentation format files. With the thumbnail file, the portable device user can move from slide to slide, reorder slides, delete slides, add slides from other thumbnail files, and add notes/text. After a new presentation is created using one or more thumbnail files, it may be uploaded to a central server where a server-side application recompiles the new presentation into a native format presentation from the thumbnail format. In this manner, presentations can be sourced from virtually anywhere and using nearly any computing device from which one can view thumbnail presentations. Other variations and enhancements are disclosed.
