    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0034] Reference will now be made in detail to exemplary embodiments, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings. The following description refers to the accompanying drawings in which the same numbers in different drawings represent the same or similar elements unless otherwise represented. The implementations set forth in the following description of exemplary embodiments do not represent all implementations consistent with the present disclosure. Instead, they are merely examples of apparatuses and methods consistent with aspects related to the present disclosure as recited in the appended claims.

    [0035] The terminology used in the present disclosure is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments only and is not intended to limit the present disclosure. As used in the present disclosure and the appended claims, the singular forms "a", "an" and "the" are intended to include the plural forms as well, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. It shall also be understood that the term "and/or" used herein is intended to signify and include any or all possible combinations of one or more of the associated listed items.

    [0036] It shall be understood that, although the terms "first" "second" "third" etc. may be used herein to describe various information, the information should not be limited by these terms. These terms are only used to distinguish one category of information from another. For example, without departing from the scope of the present disclosure, first information may be termed as second information; and similarly, second information may also be termed as first information. As used herein, the term "if" may be understood to mean "when" or "upon" or "in response to determining" depending on the context.

    [0037] According to an information collection method provided by the present disclosure, a trigger message including a prompt text and a page jump instruction mass-sent (in other words, the trigger message is sent to a plurality of group members at the same time) by a preset group member is received; a corresponding text link is generated based on the prompt text, and the text link is displayed on the group chat interface; and the page jump instruction is executed to jump to a corresponding target page to complete collection of target information when a preset trigger event with respect to the text link is monitored. In this way, target information of the group members is quickly collected during group chatting, which is favorable to improving user's group chat experience.

    [0038] Fig. 1 illustrates an information collection method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure. As illustrated in Fig. 1, the information collection method is applied in a terminal, and includes the following steps.

    [0039] In step 101, a trigger message mass-sent by a preset group member is received, wherein the trigger message includes a prompt text and a page jump instruction.

    [0040] In step 102, a corresponding text link is generated based on the prompt text, and the text link is displayed on a group chat interface.

    [0041] In step 103, when a preset trigger event with respect to the text link is monitored, the page jump instruction is executed to jump to a corresponding target page to complete collection of target information.

    [0042] The technical solutions disclosed in step 101 to step 103 may be understood as an information collection logic loaded in group chat client software (for example, an instant messaging APP) installed in the above terminal. The group chat client software may quickly collect target information of group members during group chatting by running the above information collection logic.

    [0043] In this embodiment, the above terminal may be a mobile terminal of a user. For example, the mobile terminal may be a touch-screen smart phone of the user. The target page may include a group album page, a group sign-in page, and a group activity page; and the target information may include picture information, geographical location information, voice information, and text information. Nevertheless, during implementation, the above target page and target information may include other content besides the content mentioned in the above description.

    [0044] When the user is engaged in a group chat by using client software (hereinafter referred to as APP) installed in the terminal, in addition to providing a group chat service for the user, the APP may generally provide value-added services. When the user uses the value-added services provided by the APP, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting the target information relevant to the value-added services, wherein the target information is generated in the course of using the value-added services by all the group members.

    [0045] For example, in addition to providing the group chat service, the APP may provide such functions as a group album, a group sign-in, and a group activity for the user. When the user enables the group album function and has created a group album relevant to an offline activity, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting photos relevant to the offline activity. When the user enables the group sign-in function, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting the sign-in information such as geographical location information of all the group members. When the user enables the group activity function, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting text feedback information or voice feedback information of all the group members with respect to the initiated offline activity.

    [0046] In the related art, when the APP collects the target information relevant to the value-added services that is generated in the course of using the value-added services by all the group members, collection of the target information is generally dependent on user's initiative uploading. As a result, the target information of all the group members may not be quickly collected.

    [0047] In this embodiment, to more quickly collect the target information of all the group members, a trigger option may be preset in the target page, wherein the trigger option is configured to trigger mass-sending of the trigger message to all the group members.

    [0048] When a preset group member is using the value-added services provided by the APP, by performing a preset trigger operation for the trigger option, the APP may be triggered to mass-send a trigger message to the other group members. The trigger message may include a prompt text and a page jump instruction. The prompt text may be prompt information input by the preset group member in a customization manner, and the page jump instruction may be an instruction defined by the APP system for jumping to a target page.

    [0049] Meanwhile, when the preset group member is using the value-added services, the APP may monitor in real time a trigger event with respect to the trigger option, and judge whether the monitored trigger event is a preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation. If the monitored trigger event is the preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation, the APP may be triggered to mass-send the trigger message to the other group members.

    [0050] It should be noted that, in practical application, the target page may be an independent page, or may include a plurality of subpages. For example, when the target page is a group sign-in page, the target page is generally an independent page; when the target page is a group album page, the target page may generally include a plurality of subalbums, and in this case, the target page may further include, in addition to the main page, a plurality of subpages corresponding to the plurality of subalbums respectively; and when the target page is a group activity page, the target page may generally include a plurality of activity subjects, and in this case, the target page may further include, in addition to the main page, a plurality of subpages corresponding to the plurality of activity subjects respectively.

    [0051] Hereinafter, with respect to the above two circumstances, the process of mass-sending the trigger message by the APP to all the group members is described.

    [0052] In an illustrated implementation manner, when the target page is an independent page, the trigger option may be preset in the independent page of the target page. When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option, a first setting interface may be output to the preset group member. In this case, the preset group member may input a prompt text in the first setting interface.

    [0053] When the prompt text is successfully input, the APP may acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the first setting interface, and then create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and a preset page jump instruction for jumping to the target page. When the trigger message is successfully created, the trigger message may be mass-sent to all the group members by using the group chat function of the APP. The preset trigger operation may be a click operation, and the preset trigger event may be a click event corresponding to the click operation.

    [0054] In another illustrated implementation manner, when the target page includes a plurality of subpages, the trigger option may be respectively preset in the main page and the plurality of subpages of the target page. When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option on the subpage, the first setting interface may still be output to the preset group member. The specific implementation is not described herein any further.

    [0055] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option on the main page, a second setting interface may be output to the preset group member. In this case, the preset group member may input a prompt text in the second setting interface, and select a corresponding target subinterface in the second setting interface.

    [0056] When the prompt text is successfully input, the APP may acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the second setting interface and the target subinterface selected in the second setting interface, generate a page jump instruction for jumping to the target subinterface at the background, and create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and the generated page jump instruction. When the trigger message is successfully created, the trigger message may be mass-sent to all the group members by using the group chat function of the APP.

    [0057] The preset group member may be a group manager or a group member having equivalent rights. For example, when the target page is a group sign-in page, the preset group member may be a group manager; and when the target page is a group album page, the preset group member may be a group manager and creators of the subalbums in the group album page. When the target page is a group activity page, the preset group member may be a group manager and initiators of the activities on the group activity page.

    [0058] In this embodiment, when the APP has mass-sent the trigger message, after the APP of each of all the group members receives the trigger message, a corresponding text link may be generated based on the prompt text in the trigger message, and then the generated text link is displayed on the group chat interface. Since there are masses of group chat messages on the group chat interface, the APP may highlight the text link on the group chat interface when displaying the text link. For example, the text link may be displayed in a highlight manner or using a special font.

    [0059] After the text link is displayed on the group chat interface, all the group members may perform a preset trigger operation for the text link to trigger the APP to jump to the corresponding target page. Meanwhile, the APP may monitor the trigger event with respect to the text link at the background. When a preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation with respect to the text link is monitored, a page jump instruction carried in the trigger message may be automatically executed at the background to jump to a corresponding target page. After the APP jumps to the corresponding target page, the APP may acquire target information input in the target page, and upload the acquired target information to a corresponding service end, to complete collection of the target information.

    [0060] The above described technical solution is hereinafter illustrated with reference to two specific application examples.

    [0061] In one aspect, assume that the target page is a group sign-in page. In this case, the trigger option may be a trigger option "you are invited to sign in" on the group sign-in page.

    [0062] When the APP has monitored a click event with respect to the trigger option on the page, the APP may output the first setting interface to the preset group member, and acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the first setting interface. Afterwards, the APP may create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and a preset page jump instruction for jumping to the target page.

    [0063] The prompt text may be a prompt text "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in", the page jump instruction may be a page jump instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_location" (which indicates jumping to a location page) defined in the APP system. In this case, the trigger message generated by the APP may be a trigger message "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in {mitalk://control/jump_to_location}". When the trigger message is successfully created, the APP may mass-send the trigger message to the other group members in the current group.

    [0064] When the other group members receive the trigger message, a text link "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in" may be highlighted on the group chat interface. In this case, the APP may monitor in real time the preset trigger event with respect to the text link at the background.

    [0065] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event (for example, a click event) with respect to the text link, the instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_location" may be automatically executed at the background to jump to the location page. An option "upload location" may be provided on the location page, and the local group member may click the option to upload his or her own geographical location information to the service end to complete sign-in. Upon completion of sign-in, the APP may synchronize the geographical location information uploaded by all the group members that is stored at the service end to a local terminal, for all the group members in the group to check.

    [0066] Accordingly, in this manner, when the group members are using the group sign-in service provided by the APP, the group manager may quickly collect the geographical location information of all the group members, thereby greatly improving user's group chat experience.

    [0067] In another aspect, assume that the target page is a group album page. In this case, the trigger option may be a trigger option "you are invited to upload photos" on the main page or each of the subpages of the group album page. When the APP has monitored a click event with respect to the trigger option on the main page, the APP may output the second setting interface to the preset group member, acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the second setting interface and a target subpage selected in the second setting interface, and generate a page jump instruction for jumping to the target subpage at the background. Afterwards, the APP may create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and the generated page jump instruction. Nevertheless, when the APP has monitored the click event with respect to the trigger option on the subpage, the APP may output the first setting interface to the preset group member. For example, when the preset group member has created a subalbum, the trigger option in the subalbum may be clicked to trigger the APP to mass-send the trigger message. The specific implementation is not described herein any further.

    [0068] The prompt text may be a prompt text "please upload your photos of this activity", the page jump instruction may be a page jump instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_take_photo" (which indicates jumping to an upload page of the selected subalbum) defined in the APP system. In this case, the trigger message generated by the APP may be a trigger message "please upload your photos of this activity {mitalk://control/jump_to_take_photo}". When the trigger message is successfully created, the APP may mass-send the trigger message to the other group members in the current group.

    [0069] When the other group members receive the trigger message, a text link "please upload your photos of this activity" may be highlighted on the group chat interface. In this case, the APP may monitor in real time the preset trigger event with respect to the text link at the background.

    [0070] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event (for example, a click event) with respect to the text link, the instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_take_photo" may be automatically executed at the background to jump to an upload page of the selected subalbum. An option "upload photos" may be provided on the upload page, and the local group member may click the option to select locally stored photos to be uploaded, and then upload the selected photos to the selected subalbum at the service end. Upon completion of photo uploading, the APP may synchronize the photos uploaded by all the group members into the subalbum that are stored at the service end to a local terminal, for all the group members in the group to check.

    [0071] Accordingly, in this manner, when the group members are using the group album service provided by the APP, the group manager may quickly collect the photos of all the group members, thereby greatly improving user's group chat experience.

    [0072] In addition, during implementation, the target page may also be a group activity page, and the group activity page may include a plurality of group activity subjects, wherein each subject may correspond to a subpage. The trigger option may be respectively provided on the main page and the subpages. The preset group member may perform a preset trigger operation for the trigger option to select an activity subject, trigger the APP to collect text information or voice information fed back by the local group members with respect to the activity subject, and then upload the collected information to the corresponding service end. With respect to such an application scenario, the specific implementation is the same as the implementation in the above described application scenario where the target page is a group album page, which is thus not described herein any further.

    [0073] In the above embodiment, a trigger message including a prompt text and a page jump instruction mass-sent by a preset group member is received; a corresponding text link is generated based on the prompt text, and the text link is displayed on the group chat interface; and the page jump instruction is executed to jump to a corresponding target page to complete collection of target information when a preset trigger event with respect to the text link is monitored. In this way, target information of the group members is quickly collected during group chatting, which is favorable to improving user's group chat experience.

    [0074] Fig. 2 illustrates an information collection method according to an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure. As illustrated in Fig. 2, the information collection method is applied in a terminal, and includes the following steps.

    [0075] In step 201, a trigger message mass-sent by a preset group member is received, wherein the trigger message includes a prompt text and a page jump instruction.

    [0076] In step 202, a corresponding text link is generated based on the prompt text, and the text link is highlighted on a group chat interface.

    [0077] In step 203, when a preset trigger event with respect to the text link is monitored, the page jump instruction is executed to jump to a corresponding target page.

    [0078] In step 204, target information input in the target page is acquired.

    [0079] In step 205, the acquired target information is uploaded to a corresponding service end to complete collection of the target information.

    [0080] The technical solution disclosed in step 201 to step 205 may be understood as an information collection logic loaded in group chat client software (for example, an instant messaging APP) installed in the above terminal. The group chat client software may quickly collect target information of group members during group chatting by running the above information collection logic.

    [0081] In this embodiment, the above terminal may be a mobile terminal of a user. For example, the mobile terminal may be a touch-screen smart phone of the user. The target page may include a group album page, a group sign-in page, and a group activity page; and the target information may include picture information, geographical location information, voice information, and text information. Nevertheless, during implementation, the above target page and target information may include other content besides the content mentioned in the above description.

    [0082] When the user is engaged in a group chat by using client software (hereinafter referred to as APP) installed in the terminal, in addition to providing a group chat service for the user, the APP may generally provide value-added services. When the user uses the value-added services provided by the APP, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting the target information relevant to the value-added services, wherein the target information is generated in the course of using the value-added services by all group members.

    [0083] For example, in addition to providing the group chat service, the APP may provide such functions as a group album, a group sign-in, and a group activity for the user. When the user enables the group album function and has created a group album relevant to an offline activity, the APP generally has a demand on collecting photos relevant to the offline activity. When the user enables the group sign-in function, the APP generally has a demand on quickly collecting the sign-in information such as geographical location information of all group members. When the user enables the group activity function, the APP generally has a demand on collecting text feedback information or voice feedback information of all the group members with respect to the initiated offline activity.

    [0084] In the related art, when the APP collects the target information relevant to the value-added services that is generated in the course of using the value-added services by all the group members, collection of the target information is generally dependent on user's initiative uploading. As a result, the target information of all the group members may not be quickly collected.

    [0085] In this embodiment, to more quickly collect the target information of all the group members, a trigger option may be preset in the target page, wherein the trigger option is configured to trigger mass-sending of the trigger message to all the group members.

    [0086] When a preset group member is using the value-added services provided by the APP, by performing a preset trigger operation for the trigger option, the APP may be triggered to mass-send a trigger message to the other group members. The trigger message may include a prompt text and a page jump instruction. The prompt text may be prompt information input by the preset group member in a customization manner, and the page jump instruction may be an instruction defined by the APP system for jumping to a target page.

    [0087] Meanwhile, when the preset group member is using the value-added services, the APP may monitor in real time a trigger event with respect to the trigger option, and judge whether the monitored trigger event is a preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation. If the monitored trigger event is the preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation, the APP may be triggered to mass-send the trigger message to the other group members.

    [0088] It should be noted that, in practical application, the target page may be an independent page, or may include a plurality of subpages. For example, when the target page is a group sign-in page, the target page is generally an independent page; when the target page is a group album page, the target page may generally include a plurality of subalbums, and in this case, the target page may further include, in addition to the main page, a plurality of subpages corresponding to the plurality of subalbums respectively; and when the target page is a group activity page, the target page may generally include a plurality of activity subjects, and in this case, the target page may further include, in addition to the main page, a plurality of subpages corresponding to the plurality of activity subjects respectively.

    [0089] Hereinafter, with respect to the above two circumstances, the process of mass-sending the trigger message by the APP to all the group members is described.

    [0090] In an illustrated implementation manner, when the target page is an independent page, the trigger option may be preset in the independent page of the target page. When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option, a first setting interface may be output to the preset group member. In this case, the preset group member may input a prompt text in the first setting interface.

    [0091] When the prompt text is successfully input, the APP may acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the first setting interface, and then create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and a preset page jump instruction for jumping to the target page. When the trigger message is successfully created, the trigger message may be mass-sent to all the group members by using the group chat function of the APP. The preset trigger operation may be a click operation, and the preset trigger event may be a click event corresponding to the click operation.

    [0092] In another illustrated implementation manner, when the target page includes a plurality of subpages, the trigger option may be respectively preset in the main page and the plurality of subpages of the target page. When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option on the subpage, the first setting interface may still be output to the preset group member. The specific implementation is not described herein any further.

    [0093] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event with respect to the trigger option on the main page, a second setting interface may be output to the preset group member. In this case, the preset group member may input a prompt text in the second setting interface, and select a corresponding target subinterface in the second setting interface.

    [0094] When the prompt text is successfully input, the APP may acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the second setting interface and the target subinterface selected in the second setting interface, generate a page jump instruction for jumping to the target subinterface at the background, and create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and the generated page jump instruction. When the trigger message is successfully created, the trigger message may be mass-sent to all the group members by using the group chat function of the APP.

    [0095] The preset group member may be a group manager or a group member having equivalent rights. For example, when the target page is a group sign-in page, the preset group member may be a group manager; and when the target page is a group album page, the preset group member may be a group manager and creators of the subalbums in the group album page. When the target page is a group activity page, the preset group member may be a group manager and initiators of the activities on the group activity page.

    [0096] In this embodiment, when the APP has mass-sent the trigger message, after the APP of each of all the group members receives the trigger message, a corresponding text link may be generated based on the prompt text in the trigger message, and then the generated text link is displayed on the group chat interface. Since there are masses of group chat messages on the group chat interface, the APP may highlight the text link on the group chat interface when displaying the text link. For example, the text link may be displayed in a highlight manner or using a special font.

    [0097] After the text link is displayed on the group chat interface, all the group members may perform a preset trigger operation for the text link to trigger the APP to jump to the corresponding target page. Meanwhile, the APP may monitor the trigger event with respect to the text link at the background. When a preset trigger event corresponding to the preset trigger operation with respect to the text link is monitored, a page jump instruction carried in the trigger message may be automatically executed at the background to jump to a corresponding target page. After the APP jumps to the corresponding target page, the APP may acquire target information input in the target page, and upload the acquired target information to a corresponding service end, to complete collection of the target information.

    [0098] The above described technical solution is hereinafter illustrated with reference to two specific application examples.

    [0099] In one aspect, assume that the target page is a group sign-in page. In this case, the trigger option may be a trigger option for "inviting the group members to sign in" on the group sign-in page.

    [0100] When the APP has monitored a click event with respect to the trigger option on the page, the APP may output the first setting interface to the preset group member, and acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the first setting interface. Afterwards, the APP may create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and a preset page jump instruction for jumping to the target page.

    [0101] The prompt text may be a prompt text "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in", the page jump instruction may be a page jump instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_location" (which indicates jumping to a location page) defined in the APP system. In this case, the trigger message generated by the APP may be a trigger message "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in {mitalk://control/jump_to_location}". When the trigger message is successfully created, the APP may mass-send the trigger message to the other group members in the current group.

    [0102] When the other group members receive the trigger message, a text link "please upload your own geographical location to complete sign-in" may be highlighted on the group chat interface. In this case, the APP may monitor in real time the preset trigger event with respect to the text link at the background.

    [0103] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event (for example, a click event) with respect to the text link, the instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_location" may be automatically executed at the background to jump to the location page. An option "upload location" may be provided on the location page, and the local group member may click the option to upload his or her own geographical location information to the service end to complete sign-in. Upon completion of sign-in, the APP may synchronize the geographical location information uploaded by all the group members that is stored at the service end to a local terminal, for all the group members in the group to check.

    [0104] Accordingly, in this manner, when the group members are using the group sign-in service provided by the APP, the group manager may quickly collect the geographical location information of all the group members, thereby greatly improving user's group chat experience.

    [0105] In another aspect, assume that the target page is a group album page. In this case, the trigger option may be a trigger option "you are invited to upload photos" on the main page or each of the subpages of the group album page. When the APP has monitored a click event with respect to the trigger option on the main page, the APP may output the second setting interface to the preset group member, acquire the prompt text input by the preset group member in the second setting interface and a target subpage selected in the second setting interface, and generate a page jump instruction for jumping to the target subpage at the background. Afterwards, the APP may create the trigger message based on the acquired prompt text and the generated page jump instruction. Nevertheless, when the APP has monitored the click event with respect to the trigger option on the subpage, the APP may output the first setting interface to the preset group member. For example, when the preset group member has created a subalbum, the trigger option in the subalbum may be clicked to trigger the APP to mass-send the trigger message. The specific implementation is not described herein any further.

    [0106] The prompt text may be a prompt text "please upload your photos of this activity", the page jump instruction may be a page jump instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_take_photo" (which indicates jumping to an upload page of the selected subalbum) defined in the APP system. In this case, the trigger message generated by the APP may be a trigger message "please upload your photos of this activity {mitalk://control/jum ake_photo}". When the trigger message is successfully created, the APP may mass-send the trigger message to the other group members in the current group.

    [0107] When the other group members receive the trigger message, a text link "please upload your photos of this activity" may be highlighted on the group chat interface. In this case, the APP may monitor in real time the preset trigger event with respect to the text link at the background.

    [0108] When the APP has monitored the preset trigger event (for example, a click event) with respect to the text link, the instruction "mitalk://control/jump_to_take_photo" may be automatically executed at the background to jump to an upload page of the selected subalbum. An option "upload photos" may be provided on the upload page, and the local group member may click the option to select locally stored photos to be uploaded, and then upload the selected photos to the selected subalbum at the service end. Upon completion of photo uploading, the APP may synchronize the photos uploaded by all the group members into the subalbum that are stored at the service end to a local terminal, for all the group members in the group to check.

    [0109] Accordingly, in this manner, when the group members are using the group album service provided by the APP, the group manager may quickly collect the photos of all the group members, thereby greatly improving user's group chat experience.

    [0110] In addition, during implementation, the target page may also be a group activity page, and the group activity page may include a plurality of group activity subjects, wherein each subject may correspond to a subpage. The trigger option may be respectively provided on the main page and the subpages. The preset group member may perform a preset trigger operation for the trigger option to select an activity subject, trigger the APP to collect text information or voice information fed back by the local group members with respect to the activity subject, and then upload the collected information to the corresponding service end. With respect to such an application scenario, the specific implementation is the same as the implementation in the above described application scenario where the target page is a group album page, which is thus not described herein any further.

    [0111] In the above embodiment, a trigger message including a prompt text and a page jump instruction mass-sent by a preset group member is received; a corresponding text link is generated based on the prompt text, and the text link is displayed on the group chat interface; and the page jump instruction is executed to jump to a corresponding target page to complete collection of target information when a preset trigger event with respect to the text link is monitored. In this way, target information of the group members is quickly collected during group chatting, which is favorable to improving user's group chat experience.
