Using PatDocs Basics


Welcome to PatDocs Basics. On this easy-to-use website, you will find the guidance to help you get started with PatDocs. If you have any feedback or additional questions, support@minesoft.com.


This site covers the five main functions to explore in PatDocs:

  • Legal status information including offline legal status reports and accessing the legal status viewer
  • Automated tools – using autofill IDS forms and family tree mapping to replace time-consuming manual work
  • Searching across all US patent documents using different search forms
  • Reviewing, exporting and analysing a result set
  • Ordering global patent documents with in-built PatentOrder

Each tab is comprised of a written, step-by-step guide and concise video giving a brief overview of the different functionalities in PatDocs. For more in-depth guidance we recommend you contact the support team for specialised training or register for one of our training webinars.
