PATENT DOCKET_Email alerts for changes in Image File Wrapper

Dear Sir/Ma'am, Firstly, heartfelt gratitude for providing email-notifications for "change in status" for public patents and patent applications under Patent Dockets widget in MyUSPTO. It is a welcome move and would help Patent analyst community across the globe immensely. I wish to share an idea that can this facility be extended to provide email alerts for "changes in Image Wrapper" for public patents and patent applications?... more »

Please remove "two factor" authentication for known devices

If a user signs in to the EBS website with a known device (often also with an IP address known to the system), the system automatically has at least two-factor authentication. Such logons are "well-known to those skilled in the art of website-making" and are common in banking and other security websites. (Best "prior art" would be Jack Henry software, but there are numerous other examples.) The two-part authentication... more »

link searches from USPTO office account to MyUSPTO account

I'm a new user of the USPTO search tools. I have been using the search tools/computers at the San Jose USPTO office, but have learned that the workstation accounts are different from the My USPTO accounts and that the searches I create on the USPTO workstations does not show up in MyUSPTO web based account. Can These be connected?

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.

New MyUSPTO system - USPTO.gov for e-filing

I have gone through all of the indicated warnings/cues and gone through the processes for (1) changing my MyUSPTO password, and (2) linking MyUSPTO with the EFS online filing and private PAIR system --- yet I continue to get the boxes that indicate I need to go through the process ---- is this just over-cautiousness in the USPTO system? Or does this mean there is something wrong and there remains a risk that I'll be locked... more »

Remove the "capcha" puzzles for Public Pair accessed from EBC

Please remove the "capcha" puzzles for people signed on to EBS when accessing Public PAIR. With access to public applications not associated with the user's customer number removed in Private PAIR, it is apparently necessary to go through repeated "capcha" puzzles until one gets it right by "properly" identifying the partial blocks with crosswalks or where people had been walking their dogs or whatever the current puzzle... more »

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"

Patent Center - myUSPTO

Suggestions for Patent Center 1. In the USPTO Fees section, allow for searching of fees, similar to the ability to search for forms. While searching by category is nice, it would be great if we could drill down deeper (for example, searching by description of fee (key words) or fee code (when confirming correct codes were charged)). 2. In the Patent Docket section, if would be nice to be able to set this up by customer... more »

Passwords

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