Sponsored User and pre-populated email address on EFS

There was a recent change to the MyUSPTO when filing either a new patent application or follow-on patent filing where the sponsored user's email address was pre-populated. Our firm does not use the sponsored user's email address as a way of communicating. Our firm has a general email box for communicating with the USPTO. I would like to see that change reversed as soon as possible so we can input our general email... 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 »

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 »

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

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.

Expand/Collapse All

This may become more useful when there are more widgets available but it would be nice to have an Expand All and a Collapse All button in the upper right corner of the page so that you can quickly open any not already open or close any that are not already closed instead of having to do one at a time.

Sponsorship issues in context of a firm

The new sponsorship tool is, I'm happy to report, a snap to use. However, there are some issues with the sponsorship paradigm that should be rectified ASAP. First, there is no way for a firm (or any customer number owner) to see who has access to a given customer number by way of sponsorship--you can check which practitioners are associated with a customer number quite easily, but there is no mechanism that allows customer... more »
