  • Patent number: 11010425
    Abstract: A computer search service can receive an enterprise graph query from a client computing device that is remote from the computer search service, with the enterprise graph query identifying an actor object set, a target object set, and a relationship between the actor object set and the target object set. The search service can return results of the enterprise graph query to the client device. The search service can receive from the client device an indication of user input instructing the search service to persist the enterprise graph query, with the indication of user input also instructing the search service to associate the persisted enterprise graph query with an entity. Moreover, in response to receiving the indication of user input, the search service can persist the enterprise graph query as well as associate the persisted enterprise graph query with the entity and/or enter a subscription entry for the query.

  • Patent number: 10783318
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to formulating and refining field extraction rules that are used at query time on raw data with a late-binding schema. The field extraction rules identify portions of the raw data, as well as their data types and hierarchical relationships. These extraction rules are executed against very large data sets not organized into relational structures that have not been processed by standard extraction or transformation methods. By using sample events, a focus on primary and secondary example events help formulate either a single extraction rule spanning multiple data formats, or multiple rules directed to distinct formats. Selection tools mark up the example events to indicate positive examples for the extraction rules, and to identify negative examples to avoid mistaken value selection. The extraction rules can be saved for query-time use, and can be incorporated into a data model for sets and subsets of event data.

    Abstract: Therefore, what has been described is an improved for visually implementing a web page layout, where the web page layout includes a nested drop zone. Allowing the user to interactively implement nested drop zones provides numerous benefits, including the benefit of being able to create specialized layout configurations for a web page without requiring the need for expert programmers to write computer code for the new configuration. This permits the user to implement a highly customized layout in a very easy and efficient way. In addition, an improved approach has been described to implement a new type of widget that obtains its context information from another widget. For example, when a contextual widget is dropped into a drop zone, that contextual widget would obtain its context data from its parent drop zone widget.

  • Patent number: 10739932
    Abstract: Existing content such as books are reorganized and condensed as electronic books for display on a mobile computing device. The electronic books have a hierarchical structure. A user interacts with the content of the book by way of a touch screen of the mobile computing device. The navigation may be non-linear in nature and the book is reconstructed as a set of primary ideas, supporting ideas, stacks of cards for the supporting ideas, and individual cards comprising elements and commentary from or about the book.

  • Patent number: 10706599
    Abstract: The disclosed technology includes systems and methods for a recursive cell-based hierarchy for data visualization. The technology disclosed relates to a platform for ultrafast, ad-hoc data exploration and faceted navigation on integrated, heterogeneous data sets. The disclosed apparatus and methods for secure isolation of scripting from graphics make it possible to securely share live data as rendered on a live dashboard, for both desktop and mobile application environments, without saving a new state on a server when time data and dashboard elements are updated. The disclosed recursive cell-based hierarchy for data visualization makes it possible to target multiple platforms—generating data visualization representations that can be displayed when rendered natively on both desktop and mobile devices, and when rendered in a browser window.

  • Patent number: 10698595
    Abstract: A server device may transmit, to a client device, data and program code that instructs the client device to display a graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI may include cards associated with a first categorical group of a first plurality of categorical groups and a second categorical group of a second plurality of categorical groups. The toggling, dragging, and releasing of a particular card causes the GUI to: (i) display a grid interface containing vertical lanes associated with the first plurality of categorical groups and horizontal lanes associated with the second plurality of categorical groups, wherein intersections of vertical lanes and horizontal lanes define graphical boxes, (ii) slide the particular card among the graphical boxes, and (iii) associate the particular card with a third categorical group or a fourth categorical group defined by the graphical box that the particular card is released.

  • Patent number: 10698505
    Abstract: In example implementations, a method executed by a processor is provided. The method receives a first pen input from first pen and a second pen input from a second pen. The first pen and the second pen interact with a single display. The first pen input and the second pen input are translated into a first output and a second output, respectively, that are executed by an application. The first output and the second output are sent to the application. The application executes the first output and the second output simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 10687370
    Abstract: Methods and systems for population of user identifiers based on nearby devices are disclosed. One or more user identifiers are entered into a first electronic device. When the first electronic device is in proximity to a second electronic device, and a user prepares to log on to the second electronic device, the one or more user identifiers from the first electronic device are retrieved by the second electronic device and presented to the user for selection. The user identifiers may be displayed in a prioritized state based on particular factors. Sharing policies for particular user identifiers may be set based on user input. The user can then select one of the presented user names for logging on to an account with the second electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10671244
    Abstract: A system and method for displaying a user interface may include an examination and/or elimination of positional bias of interactive categories in order to drive user engagement. A method or system configured to execute the method on a user interface may include creating a first arrangement of categories. The arrangement can be shown on a user device to one or more users a selected number of times. The users' interactions with the categories in the interface may be recorded. The method may further include creating a second arrangement, which is different from the first arrangement, and this second arrangement may be shown to the users the selected number of times and the users' interactions with the second arrangement may be recorded. Based on the frequency of user interactions with the first and second arrangement, a ranked set of the categories may be created and displayed to users.

In some implementations, a computer-executed method includes receiving user input indicative of manipulation of a particular user interface element with respect to a grid including a plurality of user interface elements. The method identifies, based on the user input, at least first and second rows of the grid to be updated. The method generates an animation to update the grid, including an update of the second row of the grid and one or more transitions comprising at least one of: transition of a first user interface element from the first row to outside the display area of the grid along a first direction, and transition of a second user interface element into the first row from outside the display area along a different second direction. The method causes the animation to be displayed.
