The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) has added an online form to the USPTO website that allows any member of the public to nominate any PTAB decision for precedential or informative designation.

Those nominating a decision must provide a case number, case name, and brief reasons for the nomination. They may optionally provide their name and email address. The online form is accessible on the PTAB’s Precedential and informative decisions page of the USPTO website.
