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?

PAIR authentication

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.

Link Trademarks and Patents to Manage Together on one Dashboard

I would like to be able to manage ALL of my patents and trademarks together, in one dashboard. As an inventor, I'm sure there are many others like me who have that same issue. That's what a dashboard does, and makes common sense to do.

 

And that means pending patents, approved patents, pending trademarks, approved trademarks, etc. together, all on one page where they can then be further drilled down into.

TEAS Submissions via MyUSPTO.gov Account

The submission links received from TEAS do not go through the MyUSPTO.gov account and thus require logging into Financial Manager to pay fees in a trademark submission. This occurs regardless of whether a trademark submission is prepared under the MyUSPTO.gov account, or via TEAS directly. It would be helpful if the TEAS Submission Link email included an additional link that launched through MyUSPTO.gov in order to... more »

When I move my widgets they do not stay there permanently. No help topic to keep them in the place where I put them.

Paying Patent Maintenance Fees- Populate Fields

Since we log into the Financial Manager with the same account that is associated with our Customer IDs it should be possible to automatically pull patents for which maintenance fees are due.

 

Populate the data automatically for patents associated with our customer numbers.

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. It would be most helpful if there could be a slimmed down version without all the explanations for experienced users. A good place to access this might be the new console.

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.

Two-Step Authentication Options Chosen

Proposal: Allow one's USPTO.gov account settings to show all the two-step authentication options you have setup. Currently: Currently when you go to your account settings and look at Two-Step Authentication, only one radio button can be selected which gives the impression that a user can only have one method. This is not true. I first selected my email. After verifying that. I then selected my email and verified that.... more »
