Learn how to file DOCX documents in your applications using USPTO systems

Join the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for a training webinar on how to file in DOCX through Patent Center or EFS-Web. Filing in DOCX provides many benefits in the patent application process, including:

  • eliminating the need to convert structured text into a PDF for filing
  • instant feedback analysis to detect common errors that may otherwise delay processing an application
  • automatic metadata detection and removal to support the submission of only substantive information in the file

The eCommerce Modernization (eMod) team will provide information and conduct a demo using the Patent Center training mode, followed by a question-and-answer session. Applicants are encouraged to use the Patent Center training mode to practice filing in DOCX without saving/storing data to USPTO systems.

Register to attend a May training webinar:

You will receive instructions for joining the webinar via email prior to your registered session.
