MyConsole

Don't require changing password every 60 days - it's unnecessarily excessive.

Longer period of time before timeout or selective timeout

Can the timeout be increased substantially (or be set as a preference by the user) so that I don't have to enter my password every time I return to MyConsole? I would like to open MyConsole at the beginning of my day and refer to it as needed. However, the timeout occurs very quickly and I need to re-enter my password almost every time. Ideally, we could access the public aspects even when the timeout occurs (e.g., ...more »

Passwords

There is no reason for having these constant password changes. This only makes it more difficult to use.

Make "Remember me" sticky

Make the "Remember me" feature on login sticky so it doesn't need to be reset each time if no change is desired

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.

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. It appears that you want individual accounts, however, firms typically use a single email address for all uspto correspondence, so it is not possible for individuals to each set up an account.

Do not require two step authentication after first login

In addition to substantially lengthening the auto-logout time, do not require two step authentication (i.e., entering a code emailed or texted from USPTO) after a user selects the box "Remember this computer" and successfully logs in with two step authentication.

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

The quick log out time for MyUSPTO is exceedingly frustrating. It's a time suck to have to log in 10+ times a day. Can the time frame be lengthened somehow?

 

Thank you!

My USPTO

Do not have automatic log out after a short period of time of non-use. It would be convenient if you could leave MYUSPTO open during the day to refer back to it as needed.
