Automatic Deadline Generation Overview

This details the features of  the Trademarks Module of TM Cloud . The Patents Module has similar functionality. .

Office Actions (OA)

Enter the date of an Office Action in the OA section. The section automatically calculates the response due dates and reminders and adds the dates to the docket,

Statutory Deadlines:

Time is precious. Deadlines must be met. The system automatically generates mandatory legal deadlines with reminders. You can also add your own ad hoc deadlines or reminders to the system. 

Trademark Renewals:

Automation simplifies workflows. Once the status of a trademark renewal has been marked as completed the module will automatically calculate and schedule the next renewal due date. A Declaration of Use due date will also be generated if applicable. Data updates can be downloaded into the platform using the Audit feature from the connected online trademark databases.

Statement of Use:

A Statement Of Use (SOU) is required for Intent-To-Use (ITU) trademark applications. Once the Notice of Allowance has been received and the date has been saved in the record, all dates and reminders will be automatically generated in the docket for US applications.

Patent Annuities:

Patent annuitiy requirements vary from country to country. TM Cloud automatically calculates the due dates for patent annuities and other maintenance due dates. Patent data updates can be downloaded into the module from various connected patent databases.

Reminders:

Notifications and other reminders are an important part of how we navigate our increasingly complex lives. Once a docket action is marked as completed all corresponding reminders will be automatically updated or removed from the docket. This reduces clutter or confusion and keeps your docket streamlined and efficient.

All modules work in the same manner.

Top Software Reviews

I used several hosted services as part of my practice and none come close to providing the efficiency I enjoy with how TM Cloud manages my docket of over 1200 trademark filings. The service is intuitive and complete, and the switchover from the docket provider I used before was seamless. If I built my own cloud-based service, it would look a lot like TM Cloud.

I’m very happy with the TM Cloud software. It’s trustworthy, accurate and easy to use. My company has had three paralegals quickly familiarize themselves with the system. I like the customizable reports and auditing feature. And TM Cloud is extremely responsive to any questions or concerns.

TM Cloud is a straightforward and customizable docket system with a great report generating feature. As a cloud-based service it is accessible from virtually anywhere and it was easy to provide clients with access to their trademark records. The ability to audit trademark records for accuracy is invaluable, and the capacity to use the system in either in English or Spanish language was a good option for our clients.
