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.

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 »

Passwords

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

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.

When I notice that one of the applications in my collection has a status change, I want to see new documents, which are now available in the "Image File Wrapper" of the "Public PAIR".

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.

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"
