Individual Accounts

I would love to be able to to have a user account linked to my individual inventor file. I would like to have all of my patent applications located under my account and customer number. I would like to have the option of viewing my status and all of the particulars of my individual account. I would like auto suggestions and email updates.

Size of password

Don't require so many extra security features in password. 12-character size is too long. Need for both number and special character is too much.

Add Widgets label

Since when you click on the + Add widgets button, you can add or remove widgets, it seems that this button should be relabeled to either "+/- Widgets" or "Add/Remove Widgets"

Passwords

There is no reason for having these constant password changes. This only makes it more difficult to use.

Store Payment Method

It would be great to be able to store my payment method, so I don't have to re-enter every time.

Put search criteria on page when TESS returns nothing found

Sometimes when searching on TESS, it is desirable to print the screens which list the returns. Copies may be sent to clients. Those pages show the search criteria. But when there are no returns in response to a search, the search criteria are not shown. It would be nice to be able to show the search criteria when there are no returns so a print of that page would show what the search was that returned no hits.

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

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. It appears that you want individual accounts, however, firms typically use a single email address for all uspto correspondence, so it is not possible for individuals to each set up an account.

Link Trademark Docket to Representative's Email Address

Auto-link a mark to a profile/docket based on the email address in the attorney of record field. Many firms use one email address on all marks filed, so the account associated with that email address (the firm administrator) could then delegate a mark to the appropriate individual's profile, while still keeping the master list of marks in one account. In my view, this would be incredibly useful.

Patent Docket

It would be nice if we could monitor patent applications that we have filed under our customer number right away. For some reason, it seems you have to wait until they are published.
