accessing myuspto.gov is way too cumbersome. there has to be a better way than forcing recaptcha and email verification every time logging onto the system is attempted. please fix this asap.
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.
myUSPTO has re-captcha enabled on all logins which prevents bot/automated access. this was not the case for private pair. We had tools which would automate the login process and download XML files daily to help our firm. Now that private pair is moving to myUSPTO these tools will no longer work. Is there any planned release for an API to private pair data? Or is there a way to disable 'recaptcha' for my account? Why would... more »
The What's New section indicates:
We added a share feature in the Patent Docket that allows you to
grant other users access to a read-only view of your collections.

However, I cannot seem to location the option to share.
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.
I can not understand this, and would appreciate some training material.
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.
At least give us the option of using a weak password for a non-essential feature. Password requirements for MyUspto password are very high. So high that I have to write down my password. As a general rule. I only use strong passwords on websites that affect money or business. I use weak passwords for the rest. MyUspto falls into the category of websites that provide useful information. That docketing feature... more »
Dear Sir/Ma'am, Firstly, heartfelt gratitude for providing email-notifications for "change in status" for public patents and patent applications under Patent Dockets widget in MyUSPTO. It is a welcome move and would help Patent analyst community across the globe immensely. I wish to share an idea that can this facility be extended to provide email alerts for "changes in Image Wrapper" for public patents and patent applications?... more »
Now that MyUSPTO is linked to Private PAIR allow the links under Check Status to link to Private PAIR.
It would be nice to have choose, for example, two columns spanning the width of the screen rather than three.
I have failed in creating an account for many times, How to complete in creating an account and pay the maintenance fee?
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 »
The "favorites" gadget should allow folders to categorize different "favorites".
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 »
