Question Un-waived Letter thro ERAS portal

Through the ERAS portal I finalized an un-waived letter author. It gave me the same instructions for the author to directly upload onto ERAS. The author went ahead and uploaded the letter directly on ERAS/AAMC. Is that ok or should i have uploaded it through OASIS?
Please help! I don't want to wait 2 weeks just to realize I did something wrong.

Unwaived LoRs should not be uploaded through the AAMC LoR Portal.
Unwaived LoRs should be uploaded by you (not letter author) via OASIS.

I called ERAS helpline and they said that even the author can upload an un-waived letter. The only difference is that we can't see what they have written if they upload it directly.
