You can import your own lists of patent numbers and internal information regarding these numbers into PatentSight to use them in searches and analyses.

Available Import Options
You can import your own lists of patent numbers and internal information regarding these numbers into PatentSight to use them in searches and analyses. You can choose either one of the three import options explained below.
Quick Import Search Results
“Quick Import Search Results” is a convenient option to directly apply a list of patent numbers to the PatentSight search panel. Your tag will be automatically created and saved in a folder called “Quick Imports,” which can be found in your user folder. Once imported, you can always rename the tag or save it in a different folder.
NOTE: The option "Quick Import Search Results" does not allow you to review or to edit mismatched patent numbers during the import process. We therefore only recommend this option if you are working with a list of patent numbers that are importable into the PatentSight. If you want to make sure if and how a list of patent numbers imported has been matched, we recommend using one of the other import options.
Import Data to Tag
The option “Import Data to Tag” allows you to review numbers that could not be matched or have resulted in ambiguous matches. In many cases, the numbers can be matched correctly in the import dialog by changing the format according to the PatentSight guidelines outlined below. In addition, you can export an overview of the matching results via the import dialog.
Note: The option “Import Data to Tag” does not create a tag fully automatically. In the final step of the import process, you will have to name your tag and save it in a folder of your choice.
Import Data to Custom Fields
Just like tags, custom fields allow you to map information to patents of your choice. In contrast to tags, custom fields can be used not only as search fields and groupings in charts and tables – they can also be used as measures, e.g., on chart axes.
Points to Keep in Mind
- Preparing a list of numbers to be imported
- Importing recently filed patent applications
- Importing other IP rights
- Difference between the document numbers imported and the import results displayed in PatentSight
- If you import a list of publication or application numbers, in most cases, multiple numbers will be matched to and aggregated into one patent family (→ Patent Family ) in PatentSight.
- If your list contains inactive patents and utility models, these rights will not automatically be included in your analysis per default. If you want to include these rights, turn on the toggles “Include Inactive” and/or “Include Other IP Rights” at the top of the search panel.
