TotalPatent Releases New Enhancements

Patent research and retrieval system TotalPatent has updated its platform with new functionality that gives users greater control over their data. Read on for a more detailed report.

TotalPatent Enhancements

Addition of AssigneeName segment search to the Assignees/Applicants restriction drop-down menu:

The Assignees/Applicants search field in the Advanced, Guided, Semantic and Edit Search forms will be changed to search a broader, more encompassing segment, ASSIGNEE-NAME. ASSIGNEENAME searches on original, standardized, normalized and current assignee from the biblio section. It also searches on these assignees in the post-issuance data.

Option to select/change order of columns in spreadsheet

Users now have the option of changing the order of the columns that appear in the spreadsheet download. However, this feature is not available in XML and Email Spreadsheet delivery options.

If users don’t select anything, the Field Order window will remain blank while selecting all the fields will automatically arrange the columns by alphabetical order. The custom order will remain the same for all spreadsheet downloads until it is changed by the user.
