Provide notification of Deposit Account Use

Send an email notification every time the deposit account is used.

 

You have an email address associated with the account.

 

Please send an email, indicating the serial number, attorney reference number, and what was charged and for what. Ideally, it would also include the remaining deposit account balance.

Next Generation Application Filing

eMod is planning to automate many data entry tasks when filing a new patent application via Patent Center. On the initial step of the filing process, we are proposing the option to allow users to upload their completed ADS, and have the system extract the required basic information automatically. Would you like this feature? Please see the mock-ups in the attachments section below or at the links listed, and share your ...more »

Miscellaneous

ADS Priority Claim

Under the Domestic Benefit/National Stage Information section, since the first radio button labeled "Remove" does not work, could it be changed to "Add" instead (that works), so that when a Continuation, Divisional, or Continuation-in-part application is filed we can simply use the ADS from the parent application and choose the "Add" button to add our priority application? This would be extremely helpful especially when ...more »

EFS Web: Easier Payment of Fees

The list of fees when you submit an action via EFS is random. Why is the IDS fee of $180 under "Miscellaneous fees" and the "Processing fee" of $140 is immediately visible? What code sections do those "Processing fees" apply to? How do you pay the fee for something that you can't find? Please add the ability to search fees, and the actual code sections to which each fee corresponds (e.g. the Processing Fee appears ...more »

Search by Atty Docket Number

I'd like it if the "Search by Attorney Docket Number" would include an option to search for numbers "containing" the search string (in addition to the "starts with" choice), to allow easier searching on cases where we've got more than one reference number (for example, our number and the client's reference number) Maybe even better would be to provide a way to assign multiple reference numbers to the same matter, and ...more »

Application Status on EFS Web, with Accurate Status Date

It would be useful to have the current status of an application displayed on EFS Web, in the block identifying the application. This is particularly useful if you are submitting an IDS (knowing that there was an office action set tells you whether you need to pay a fee.) It's also useful when submitting a response, as a reminder that an Extension of Time may be due, etc. It could be as simple as: Non-Final Action ...more »

Link to EFS-Web directly from Private PAIR

I would love to see an addition in Private PAIR to link directly into EFS-Web. For instance if I am reviewing a case in Private PAIR and I need to file something on the matter, I can click on the "EFS-Web" link and it will take me to the initial screen for EFS-Web but the application number and confirmation number are already pre-filled in for me so that I don't need to flip back and forth between the screens to fill ...more »

Modernization of EFS-Web

Used Stored Credit Card Information like a Deposit Account

Now that the new Financial Manager stores credit card information, why not allow pre-authorized payment of fees from a stored credit card in the same way you pre-authorize payment (underpayment, extension fees, etc.) from a deposit account? Essentially, what I am suggesting is have the stored credit card perform the equivalent function of the deposit account. Like the deposit account, this would be an opt-in request. ...more »

Entity Status

Since entity status may be updated through Private PAIR, it would be fantastic to have the ability to search by customer number and have returned in the results entity status. This would allow practitioners a quick way to review entity status for potential review. Additional useful, and impressive if possible, would be the ability to select the matters in the list to begin a bulk entity status change rather than having ...more »
