One of the key uses of Juristat is to monitor pending applications. Whether you work at a law firm or are in-house, keeping track of pending applications is key and Juristat provides the unparalleled ability to see exactly the information you need to keep your application portfolio on track.
Below are some tips to get you started and a few ways our clients have used Platform to get actionable information about their applications.
Accessing Table View
To access Table View from anywhere in Juristat, you can simply click the "new search" icon in the left navigation:
Clicking "new search" at any time will clear any existing searches performed or filters applied and take you to Table view where you can get started making your custom reports.
Track Pending Applications
To develop a list of pending applications you may want to keep track of, you have a couple of options:
You can use the filter bank to narrow down the applications in your table to those that you or your firm or company is actively working on. To do so, you may want to start with a firm or company filter and a status filter to limit your search results to pending applications.
From there, you can use the filters as needed to continue narrowing down your set of applications.
The other option to create a very customized set of applications is to use Juristat's import feature to import a list of specific applications you'd like to include. To do that, click the "import" button.
From there, you'll be prompted to upload a .csv file with your applications listed by either application or publication number. Once you've completed the upload, you can save your search in order to quickly access it again in the future.
Using Platform's Table View, you can quickly identify applications that have more than two RCEs filed, have a recent extension request, or have more than four office actions in front of examiners unlikely to allow applications after three.
By clicking "Edit Columns", you can select any of over 125 different pieces of information to view about your applications. Sort on those columns to identify outlier applications with large numbers of RCEs or a high extension rate.

Should we interview?
Identifying instances where an interview gives your application a better chance of success couldn't be easier. Once you've selected a set of applications to monitor (either through filters or a keyword search), add the following columns in Table View...
Examiner Allowance Rate with Interview
Examiner Allowance Rate without Interview
Num. Office Actions
(To add columns, click the "Edit Columns" button in the upper right corner of the table!)
Once you've added those columns, you can arrange the column by either the number of office actions or the number of interviews in the prosecution.
This allows you to easily identify applications where there is a large discrepancy between an examiner's allowance rate for applications that have an interview in the prosecution vs. those without an interview.
Quickly locate applications where an interview would be beneficial to the application's chance for success.
RCE and Interview Win Rates
Want to know quickly which of your apps are in front of examiners who favor RCEs over interviews?
Add the "Examiner RCE Win Rate" column and the "Examiner Interview Win Rate" column to compare the two.
Juristat Tip: Any fields with a download icon next to them require you to export your table to a .csv to calculate those fields. Learn more about exporting here.
