The DM is seen only on the old ECAS. The new tracker will continue to be IN PROGRESS until you completed your oath. Wait times is variable. For my personal experience, I waited 3 months after my citizenship test (and approx 2 months after all the sections were changed to “completed.)

It seems Vancouver office has been pretty active during August. Lots of test invite for April / May 2020 applicants... I hope to see a little surprise in my mailbox very soon !
How can you tell?
In the spreadsheet I can only see one applicant from Vancouver to receive the test invite (out of 8)

Yep. I am January 2021 applicant (mail) and I received mine last week! I just completed the test and passed. Now begins the wait for the oath ceremony... or interview or whatever they want first.

How long after DM on ecas your ceremony changed to in progress, and how long from that point until you were scheduled for the oath on the new tracker?

DM was June 25 and the oath Ceremony changed to In progress on August 11, that makes approximately 1 month and 2 weeks on the new tracker. ECAS still shows DM until now, though.
