I am so glad that a My USPTO page was developed. However, it is way too complicated and designed in a much too busy way. And, it does not even show my filings, at least not anywhere that I can see. It seems like my filings should go automatically to the My USPTO page. It seems like the menus and things could be designed much better on these pages to make it easier to see what are choices belonging within a grouping... more »
Can it be set up that when you do a filing through your myuspto.gov account, that the trademark you filed under is then automatically added to your collections list if it is not already there?
Create widget to search uspto website to go on MYUSPTO page
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 »
For International Inventors, the creation of a customer number process should be facilitated also by email and not by Fax or Mail only, where the USAPTO itself is sending the customer number by email. Or, I like to apply on line through my USAPTO account - by a specialized widget if you like - because a smooth process is needed for new patent applications online. As it is now: You must first obtain a customer number... more »
In order to change my official contact information. I need to mail in a form or login into the Office of Enrollment of Discipline. This happens very rarely (2-10 years) and many practitioners don't bother to update it. It would be much better if it was tied to the MyUSPTO account.
Over half the time we are not able to complete a task efficiently because the EFS/PAIR system is busy. This is a daily problem that is getting worse.
USPTO: Please upgrade the system to adequately handle the system load.
Please - Please show images n the TM Docket all logos without a literal element are difficult to find.
ALSO please add a search feature to TM Dockets so I can find a mark in th long list by ser no or other parameter, THANKS!
Allow secondary authentication rather than restrict PAIR authentication to one of the two options (email or phone). During the recent problem with email authentication it would have been nice to be able to temporarily switch to phone authentication.
Please allow Manuals and other items like that to be added to Favorites. I would like to add for example a link to the TM Design Code Manual. That is hard to find. Madrid links and Form links would also be handy. THANK YOU.
Being required to use two-factor-authorization nearly every time I login to access Private PAIR is excessive. It is a nuisance and cookies should be used to avoid requiring more than a password when using the same computer.
Do you think you will add more features to the Trademark Docket, similar to what IP docketing software provides? A sortable column with upcoming/next due dates would be helpful as well as a calendar feature to see all due dates in a given period of time. Additionally, email reminders regarding deadlines as they approach would be extremely useful. I know this may be a lot to ask, but was wondering if any additional functionality... more »
The Sponsorship Tool for adding delegates to my USPTO account is hard to find. Make it easier to find, by adding to the list of favorite links on the MyUSPTO home page.
Why can't we simply use files associated with our customer number to create a collection?
I'm new to this but it appears that I have to enter each application individually and manually.
This seems to be a tremendous waste of time.
When I move my widgets they do not stay there permanently. No help topic to keep them in the place where I put them.
