We update our IT systems and applications regularly to serve customers better. Here are the recent improvements and new features of the USPTO online systems.
For the latest information on operating status and availability of online systems, please visit the systems status page.
MyUSPTO is your personalized homepage and gateway to your USPTO business. You won’t need to remember multiple logins or passwords, system names or URLs to do business with the USPTO. Eventually you will only need to remember one. Sign up for your uspto.gov account on the login page if you don’t already have one.
The MyUSPTO home page is something you can personalize, and actively manage your IP portfolio. It is anchored by several useful docket widgets for tracking patent applications and grants, and trademark registrations and post-registration statuses. There are over 10 other widgets in the widget library that can be added to the MyUSPTO home page, and more widgets are on the roadmap to be created.
We built MyUSPTO based on years of user comments and are constantly looking to improve – please provide your feedback at MyUSPTO feedback forum on IdeaScale.

MyUSPTO release notes from March 30, 2018
In addition to status changes, the trademark docket green notification bell will also appear any time there is a change to certain prosecution history entries in a trademark record. These include: changes of owner, changes of correspondence, changes of attorney, changes of domestic representative, voluntary amendments, express abandonments/surrenders. This small subset of prosecution history updates was chosen because they may indicate unauthorized changes to a trademark case.
A new manage docket button will allow you to create new collections and opt-in to receive emails when status or certain prosecution history updates occur.
