Welcome to our community.
We invite you to join the conversation to help improve Patent Center.
USPTO IdeaScale has moved to a more secure platform as of 4/18/21. There are some impacts to our IdeaScale participants:
- Users will have to change their passwords on the new site when logging in for the first time.
- This community now uses 2 factor authorization. When you login, you will be asked to enter a code that was emailed to you.
- This eCommerce community will be at a new URL(https://uspto-emod.ideascalegov.com/), but a redirect will be in place for 6 months so that you have time to update your bookmarks.
Thanks for your understanding.
This eMod IdeaScale is designed to be a forum for public suggestions and discussions to drive the improvements to Patent Center and the electronic patent application process. As we continue to develop the Patent Center application filing and viewing system, we are looking to you for feedback so that we can better fit your needs
In this community, you can submit ideas, add comments to ideas, and vote for the ideas you think are the most important.
Although we will not respond to every idea, all ideas will be regularly reviewed and considered.

The web ADS form has a limit of 50 for the name of the applicant. This is far too small to contain the legal name of my client and should be expanded.

Allow selecting document description one time for multiple documents, ie IDS, foreign references, NPL, other search documents.

Then, it takes multiple attempts to download the app, and the meeting has already started!

The DOCX website claims drawings can be filed via docx, however every time I have tried to file drawings at the end of a docx, they always get labeled as part of the abstract. The document processing should get worried if an abstract is more than 1 page anyway, but how do you get drawings recognized?
I think it will be really beneficial to filers if the save button is opposite to the submission button instead of them being next to each other. If the filer isn't paying close attention while saving the submission, they may accidentally submit the filing prematurely.
