I have gone through all of the indicated warnings/cues and gone through the processes for (1) changing my MyUSPTO password, and (2) linking MyUSPTO with the EFS online filing and private PAIR system --- yet I continue to get the boxes that indicate I need to go through the process ---- is this just over-cautiousness in the USPTO system? Or does this mean there is something wrong and there remains a risk that I'll be locked ...more »
A better way of verifying you are the right person. Implement 2 or 3 step verification. Each step a cookie could be used to confirm you were the one who did the prior step.

It would be nice to be able to print a list of the trademarks in the collections and it would also be nice to see if you have the same trademark in more than one collection

Now that MyUSPTO is linked to Private PAIR allow the links under Check Status to link to Private PAIR.
You should be able to switch in between registered e-filers who have sponsored you without having to log out of your my.uspto.gov account each time.
