API or Automated Access - Disable Re-Captcha

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 »

Please remove "two factor" authentication for known devices

If a user signs in to the EBS website with a known device (often also with an IP address known to the system), the system automatically has at least two-factor authentication. Such logons are "well-known to those skilled in the art of website-making" and are common in banking and other security websites. (Best "prior art" would be Jack Henry software, but there are numerous other examples.) The two-part authentication... more »

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.

Patent Center - myUSPTO

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 »

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.

Sponsorship issues in context of a firm

The new sponsorship tool is, I'm happy to report, a snap to use. However, there are some issues with the sponsorship paradigm that should be rectified ASAP. First, there is no way for a firm (or any customer number owner) to see who has access to a given customer number by way of sponsorship--you can check which practitioners are associated with a customer number quite easily, but there is no mechanism that allows customer... more »
