    Abstract: In the context of a co-browse session, one of the participants elects to include a screenshare task in which a screenshare of a browser window displaying a website will be provided to other participants of the co-browse session. When the screenshare task is started, a location of an address bar of the web browser is identified, optional pre-processing is applied to the image of the address bar, and a character recognition process, is used to determine the characters of the URL in the browser's address bar. The URL is compared with a list of allowed website URLs, and the screenshare session is selectively allowed only if the URL is contained in the list of allowed URLs. Once the URL has been approved, a slice of pixels the address bar is obtained and monitored for changes to the pixels that may indicate a change to the URL.

  • Patent number: 11650726
    Abstract: Systems and methods for manipulating a graphical user interface (GUI) are described. The GUI is configured to show, to a user, a transition from displaying an inline card to displaying a corresponding snackbar. The system uses an overlay to seamlessly show the transition without requiring significant edits to most portions of the GUI. In various implementations, a system displays an inline card in a base layer of a GUI and receives an input associated with the inline card. In response to receiving the input, the system generates a transitional object in an overlay of the GUI (with the overlay displayed over the base layer), generates a snackbar in the base layer, adjusts the transitional object in the overlay from covering the inline card to covering where the snackbar is generated, and removes the transitional object from the GUI.

The device receives a first message within the messaging session from an electronic device that corresponds to another user included in the messaging session; in response to receiving the first message, the device displays the first message in a first message region in the conversation transcript on the display. The device detects a first input by a first contact at a location on the touch-sensitive surface that corresponds to a location of the first message region in the conversation transcript; in response to detecting the first input, the device displays an acknowledgement selection affordance at a location in the messaging interface that corresponds to the first message region. The acknowledgement selection affordance displays a plurality of acknowledgement options.

  • Patent number: 11099640
    Abstract: A computer system for improving a user interface (UI) is disclosed. The system includes a reinforcement module that obtains (i) a shortest path to a goal in the UI and (ii) user interaction experiments; a distance module that determines a reinforcement distance for each page of the UI based on the user interaction experiments; and a step analysis module that determines a count of times that user interaction experiments indicate a deviation from each step of the shortest path. The determination is based on the determined reinforcement distance for the page of the UI associated with the step. The reinforcement module is configured to, in response to determining that a step requires reinforcement, generate a reinforcement for the step. Generating the reinforcement includes at least one of generating a prompt for an action associated with the step and altering a UI element associated with the step.

  • Patent number: 10956023
    Abstract: At an application executing using a processor in a touch-sensitive device, a detection is made that the touch-based gesture does not correspond to a perimeter defining a action, wherein the touch-based gesture is made relative to the touch-sensitive device. A set of possible actions intended by the touch-based gesture is determined. Using a disambiguation rule, an action is selected from the set of possible actions, wherein the selected action matches an action computed using the disambiguation rule. The selected action is caused to occur at the touch-sensitive device.

  • Patent number: 10929173
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for inferring design-time information based on run-time artifacts generated by services operating in a distributed computing cluster. In an embodiment, a metadata system extracts metadata including run-time artifacts generated by services in a distributed computing cluster while processing a workflow including multiple jobs. The extracted metadata is processed to identify entities and entity relationships which can then be used to generate lineage information. Using the lineage information, the metadata system can infer design-time information associated with the workflow. The inferred design-time information can then be utilized to, for example, recreate the workflow, recreate previous versions of the workflow, optimize the workflow, etc.

  • Patent number: 10871895
    Abstract: Techniques for providing merchant slot availability management using graphical user interfaces for mobile devices are discussed herein. Some embodiments may include a mobile device with processing circuitry configured to generate a multi-level graphical user interface (mGUI), and provide the mGUI to a touch screen display of the mobile device. The processing circuitry may be further configured to monitor a touch screen for various predefined user inputs for traversing tiered levels, and updating the mGUI. The mGUI may be used to implement interfaces various mobile device interfaces used for organizing hierarchal or structured data. For example, the mGUI may be used to implement a merchant slot management interface that allows merchants to dynamically adjust slot availability and associated properties, manage slots such as by creating tabs, or generate promotions for available slots.
