Supplemental Content - Filing/Load Date Missing Data

The supplemental content tab has a column header for "Filing/Load Date" for documents that are accessible via that tab, but the column is blank and there is no data. If it is necessary to resort to such documents to resolve a priority issue later, there is no data that the Applicant can point to that confirms the date of submission for a particular document.

This seems relatively easy to fix. I believe PAIR's version... more »

application details/Examiner name

We usually like to copy and paste the applicant info from Patent Center into our documents as to avoid typos. If you are signed in to PC you can't copy the examiner name. It does a pop up instead with their name (which is appreciated) but we should still be able to copy the text. However, we noticed if you are NOT signed in to PC the popup doesn't work but you can select the examiner name on public applications. Is there... more »

Deep link to documents for an application

One of our listserv members asks: If you have just filed a paper in a particular application, provide a deep link to the documents for that application.

One of the things that I always do after I have e-filed something in Patentcenter is to go and look in IFW to see just what USPTO received from me. I want to check it to make sure I filed what I meant to file. I want to make sure that the PDF image did not get degraded... more »

Give ack receipt a unique name

One of our listserv members says, "In EFS-Web each ack receipt gets a file name that is unique. Patentcenter always tries to give the same name (N417) to every ack receipt. What Patentcenter should do is give a unique name to each ack receipt. The source of uniqueness in the file name for the ack receipt could be the application number or the docket number or even the patentcenter submission number." This is Patentcenter... more »

Current Sponsorship is insufficient

One of our listserv members writes: The existing method of providing access to paralegals is too coarse. It is "all or nothing", all applications to which the attorney has access or no applications. The granting of access rights needs to be sophisticated as in ePCT, so that rights can be given as to selected applications. For example, a practitioner on multiple customer numbers cannot sponsor someone only for a particular... more »

IDS Reference Date

The SB 08 A to be submitted to the PTO requested that the full month day and year be referenced next to each reference submitted. However when receiving references in an OA from the examiner, only the month and year are referenced. Very time consuming to have to look up each of those references just to find the day of the date to submit the SB 08 A.

PatentCenter should display DAS cross-check results

One of our listserv members requests: Patentcenter should display, in the priority tab, the results of the cross-check against DAS. It needs to show the smiley face or the puzzled face or the frowny face. (See related Ideascale item #555, "Validate priority claim against DAS") This is Feature Request FR21 from the PatentCenter listserv Feature Request pate at https://patentcenter-tickets.oppedahl.com/patentcenter-feature-requests/.... more »
