Proximus has been granted a patent for a system and method that uses a graphical user interface to generate RCS message templates. Users can input text, images, videos, and interactive elements to create templates, with a representative message displayed in real-time. The system then generates RCS message templates based on user inputs for sending finalized RCS messages.

A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11853693B2) outlines a computer-implemented method for generating rich communication services (RCS) message templates to facilitate the creation of RCS messages. The method involves determining a template type specifying fillable fields for content, displaying these fields on a graphical user interface (GUI), receiving user inputs for each field, and concurrently displaying a representative RCS message based on these inputs. The template code associated with the template type is executed based on user inputs to simulate the final RCS message, which is then generated using the received inputs and template type.

The patent also covers various aspects of the method, such as different template types like text messages, suggested replies, actions, and media messages. It includes aggregating code for fillable fields, receiving inputs like character strings, photos, videos, or audio files, generating RCS messages based on the template, and transmitting them to recipients. The method allows for both static and parameterized inputs, with template code executed for each user input. Additionally, the input to a field can be content or selectable options, with the code associated with each field utilizing JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) code. The patent also extends to a non-transitory computer-readable medium carrying instructions for performing the operations outlined in the method for generating RCS message templates.
