It would be nice to be able to set up email alerts for status and document searches

Size of password

Don't require so many extra security features in password. 12-character size is too long. Need for both number and special character is too much.

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.

MyUSPTO.gov timeout

The time out needs to be increased significantly. Signing in with PKI certificates was 55 minutes, but signing in with myuspto.gov is too short of a time period until timing out (and no time out notice appears in the system tray). Please fix this! It is frustrating to have to re-sign in multiple times a day (AND select traffic lights, store fronts, etc.)

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.

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.

Status notifications for Trademark Docket

I would like to receive an email notification if someone files a change in correspondence address for an application or registration that is set up in MyUSPTO's Trademark Docket. It appears that people are gaming the Amazon Brand Registry by changing the correspondence address so that Amazon's notices are sent to someone other than the correspondent of record. They do not change the name of the attorney, so they do not... more »

PATENT DOCKET

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 »
