MyConsole

Don't require changing password every 60 days - it's unnecessarily excessive.

Size of password

Firm vs. Individual Users

It's not clear whether you are setting up a system in which every member of a firm who files an application would need a separate uspto.gov account or whether the account should be in the name of a single firm administrator.

Simplified web site for experienced users

The USPTO website is good but it includes lots of explanations. These are necessary for those who are not well versed in the site but it slows down experienced users.

I would like to open MyConsole at the beginning of my day and refer to it as needed. However, the timeout occurs very quickly and I need to re-enter my password almost every time.
