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.

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.

Longer period of time before timeout or selective timeout

Can the timeout be increased substantially (or be set as a preference by the user) so that I don't have to enter my password every time I return to MyConsole? I would like to open MyConsole at the beginning of my day and refer to it as needed. However, the timeout occurs very quickly and I need to re-enter my password almost every time. Ideally, we could access the public aspects even when the timeout occurs (e.g., ...more »

Personalizing Widgets

When personalizing widgets, it would be nice to be able to move a widget directly to the bottom of a column. Currently, to move a widget to the bottom, I have to move it first above the widget currently at the bottom and then move the bottom widget above the one i want at the bottom.

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"

Add authorized users to an account

Right now the user name and password grant full admin access to the account. Paralegals should have permission to log in and pay using secure credentials, but should not have full admin access to the account.

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.
