*URGENT*
So, I just logged in today to see my tracker and I found an update saying that. I have been scheduled to attend your citizenship ceremony on April 7, 2022 and that:

Follow the instructions we sent to you for information on:

  • how to attend the ceremony
  • what documents you have to present

Unfortunately, I haven't received any email from CIC about it (already checked my junk email). I noticed lately it was happening to me and I didn't receive any updates in the email after the citizenship test. Not sure what should I do about it? What is usually sent in that email? Can I still somehow attend that ceremony without the email? Can anyone help me
The dashboard won't send you notifications, the notifications / emails come from IRCC office. You will receive the Oath invite email one or two weeks before the Oath ceremony date.

This forum below has a link to an Oath invitation letter.

I hope this helps.

Hi There,

I cleared the test on 18th Feb and my spouse cleared it on 15th Feb. However, our test status is still showing in progress. I read that usually the status gets updated in about 2 days after the test is passed. Shall I contact IRCC? please advise

Thanks!

Yes, I am in the same boat where I got FP from Vancouver office, seems they want Commissionaires to get some business as a lot of windsor applicants are asked for FPs recently.
hi - Can you confirm what address were you required to send the fingerprints to from IRCC for the Vancouver office? Also, after your background check was set to In Progess, how long did it take to get the FP request email from the Vancouver office? Thanks!

Hi,
I did the virtual interview this morning, however the status tracker is not updated yet.
if anyone went through the interview step, how much time does it take usually to see things like language, presence,... change to completed after the interview ?
would like to hear from all who did the interview :)
It will take a couple of days to be updated.

It all varies by the local office processing your application, in some cases, it is updated within a few days, others have reported an average of 3 - 4 weeks and others have been waiting months. Hang in there, it will be updated soon

No, I did not, he /she probably requested edit access to the spreadsheet, therefore he/she can update by himself/herself

To God be the Glory!!!! Finally, my family and I have been invited to take the citizenship test, the update was today Feb 7 in the dashboard and the test window is from Feb 14 to March 7. We will be taking it on Monday, Feb 14!!! Keep the faith, if you are still waiting it will come very soon!!! :)
Update

We passed the test on Feb 14 as we had been studying from the moment we received AOR last year (10 months), submitted an Urgent Processing request on Feb 16, 2022, due to a job opportunity, submitted all documentation to support the UP request, called IRCC on Monday, Feb 21, and was notified that UP had been approved that morning. Test, prohibitions, language skills and physical presence were set to "completed" on Feb 22, 2022, dashboard update was today Feb 23, 2022. Now waiting to receive Oath invitation. God is good!!

I submitted a web form and also sent the same information to my local processing office. Feb 21 the UP request was approved, I received an acknowledgment for the web form on the same day it was submitted Feb 16.
