The EPO is pleased to inform users of new online filing (CMS) that version 1.12 is now available.
No installation is required. The new version will be automatically available the first time you log on as of 1 April 2016.
In version 1.12, you will be able to use all existing options:
Organisation administrators can now limit a user's access to applications, giving them access to demo applications only. This setting is suitable for users who want to practice using the system.
In the Account management tab, Edit user dialogue, you, as organisation administrator, select the option Demo applications only to limit the user's access to My demo applications only. Selecting the option All (including demo applications) grants access to both My applications and My demo applications.
In the Preferences dialogue, you can now choose which sub‑tab is displayed by default when you click the Applications tab. There are three options to choose from, although My applications will be available only to users who have the Access to applications set to All (including demo applications).
You can now download the acknowledgement of receipt and export file directly after submitting via two links in the application header.
You can now restrict root-folder access for users within your organisation. To manage folder access, a user has to be assigned folder management rights in the Account management tab, Edit user dialogue, Administration rights:
In Folder, in the
drop-down menu displayed when a root folder is selected, users with folder
management rights have the option Edit access.
Selecting Edit access opens the Assign folder access dialogue. The Users list shows all of the users in your organisation.
You can assign (or withdraw) a user's access to the root folder by selecting (or deselecting) this user in the list.
All users with folder management rights have access by default and cannot be de‑selected.
As with address book management, you, as organisation administrator, can now assign or withdraw the right to manage templates to individual users within the organisation. Users with template management rights can create, remove and organise templates in folders. Users without template management rights can only view the template or use it to create a new application.
You can now create a Euro-PCT Form 1200 from a submitted PCT/RO/101 application. In Tasks within a submitted PCT/RO/101 application, select New Euro-PCT Form 1200. The system will pre‑fill relevant information and let you choose which other information should be copied.
Multiple signed applications can now be submitted in a batch. Select the applications you want to submit and click Submit in the Actions drop-down list.
After confirmation of your selection, your applications will be submitted.
When submission has completed, you can download the acknowledgements of receipt and the export files (individually or as packages).
You can now create a new Form 1038 based on the data available in the submitted application. The system will search for the most recent procedural instance of the selected application filed using new online filing (CMS) and use the data to pre-fill the new Form 1038.
In the Pay fees dialogue of Forms 1001 and 1200, you can now specify how many claims you intend to pay for. The number you enter will be taken into account for fee calculation.
Version 1.12 also includes the following changes:
