Application number: 17/538,860

A content management system for collecting files from one or more authenticated submitters in a 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.

Application number: 17/533,436

Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for providing access to a hybrid web application offline. In some implementations, a computing device can be configured with a hybrid application that includes a native layer and a web view. The native layer can provide access to native features of the computing device while the web view can provide web client features, such as graphical user interfaces and server communication functionality. When the computing device is offline and the hybrid application is invoked, the native layer can load from local storage a resource bundle including the web code needed to present the web view graphical user interface, and/or facilitate communication with the web server. Similarly, when the computing device is offline, the hybrid application can load previously stored content items into the web view from local storage through the native layer so that the user can work with the content items offline.

Application number: 17/528,819

In some embodiments, upon detecting malicious activity associated with a user account, a content management system can identify other user accounts related to the malicious user account. The content management system can identify related user accounts by comparing authentication information collected for the malicious user account with authentication information collected for other user accounts. Authentication information can include IP address information, geographic information, device type, browser type, email addresses, and/or referral information, for example. The content management system can compare the content items associated with the malicious user account to content items associated with other user accounts to determine relatedness or maliciousness. After identifying related malicious user accounts, the content management system can block all related malicious user accounts.
