Uploading your LEDES file for Firms
From anywhere in the Collaborati application, select the Invoices tab, then select the "Upload Invoices" sub-navigation link.
Indicate what type of invoices you are uploading by selecting the appropriate value from the "Invoice Type" drop-down list. The default is Standard invoices. If you want to specify a non-standard invoice type but it doesn't show in the invoice type drop-down, contact your client and report the problem.
Make sure the "Bill Office From" and the "Select Office" are correct. If the fields are not selected, be sure to select the correct information.
Choose the file or Browse for the file.
Click Upload File button
The system will process the file. The File Status may show as “Processing”. Once the file has been processed, you will see the File Status, “Ready to Submit” or “File Error”.
Troubleshooting: If you don’t see the file, make sure the "Select Office" field is showing correctly. Also, make sure you are on Page 1 if there are many pages (on the bottom right side of the screen).
