You can check to see if your document is properly uploaded, by searching for the AIA review case without logging in with your user id and password and then opening the case to see if your documents were properly uploaded.
1. When filing a petition:
After you upload a document in the proper format (i.e., PDF or MPEG for exhibits and PDF for all other documents) and click the "Add" button, you will receive an acknowledgement on the screen in PTAB E2E in the upper right. A green check indicates the desired documents are attached. While the red x indicates they are not attached, the system will allow you to proceed to the next section of the petition filing wizard of Real Party but it will not have your document(s).
2. When filing a document after the petition is submitted:
a. When filing a document uploaded via the “AIA Review Actions” menu – File a Preliminary Response, File a Motion, View a Motion (and then select View Details), File a Rehearing or File an Appeal (for Notice of Appeal), you will enter the relevant information and click on the “Add” button after each document is uploaded one at a time. You will receive an acknowledgement on the screen in PTAB E2E in the upper right. When you have added all your documents click on the “Submit” button. Once the documents are submitted, then you will receive an email notification with a list of your documents filed.
b. To upload a document, OTHER THAN a Preliminary Response, Motion, Rehearing Request, or Notice of Appeal, click on the edit icon next to the Documents tab select the paper type, and enter the relevant data and chose one document to be uploaded, then click on the “Add” button. You will receive an acknowledgement in the upper right of the screen. When you are finished adding all your documents, you must click on the “Done” button to receive your email notification with a list of your documents filed. It is important NOT to upload a Preliminary Response, Motion, Rehearing Request, or Notice of Appeal using the document edit icon. Instead, a Preliminary Response, Motion, Rehearing Request, or Notice of Appeal must be uploaded using the AIA Review Actions menu as described in the previous paragraph.
If you received an error message “There is an issue saving document” in red in the upper right after you add your document, please refresh your screen and try to add your document again until you receive a successful document upload.
If you did not receive an acknowledgement on the screen or a filing receipt via email, the document most likely has not been uploaded properly and you should contact PTAB at (571) 272-7822. You may also check whether the document is listed in the file contents of the AIA Review
