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.
I use the "PATENT DOCKET" and think that it is convenient. I am however not satisfied with the link on the "Application #". 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". Although there is a link on the "Application #" in the "PATENT DOCKET", this link only leads to the portal of the... more »
Frequently logging in results in a blank page. This is extremely disruptive for my work as a Patent Attorney. Please fix ASAP.
It could be useful if in
MyUSPTO - Patent Docket - Collection there is a link/jump/shortcut to Fees Payment for each patent copying the pantent/application numbers.
Set up a link to this community on the portal page
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.
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"

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 »
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.
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.
Allow tracking of TTAB proceedings on the MyUSPTO dashboard and receive email notifications when something is filed.
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 »
I personalized my Portal page but the settings reverted back after logging out and logging in, and were not saved
