|What is trackitt?|
|Trackitt lets users collaboratively track the progress of their immigration applications by sharing and discussing the progress of their applications with other applicants. As more users share their case information, it reduces the uncertainty involved in the processing of their applications, and makes it easier to estimate when their applications will be processed. |
Please note that trackitt does not extract data from any external source. All data on trackitt is entered by users themselves.
|Why is trackitt required?|
|Immigration authorities like the USCIS provide no tracking facility that can be used to get the application status of so many applicants at the same time, as well as to discuss each others' applications. In fact, USCIS will probaby never provide such a facility, because they will not share an applicant's data with other applicants. Hence trackitt. Trackitt hopes to provide greater visibility into the application process. For example, if an applicant with priority date 10 March 2006 is waiting for a decision on an application that is currently being processed by the Dallas Backlog Elimination Center, and he notices in the tracker that a case was just approved for 9 March 2006, he can be quite confident that his case will be processed soon, assuming that the applications are being processed in a first-in-first-out manner.|
How do the trackers work?
|You add your case information in one or more of the available trackers, depending on where your application has been filed. For example, if you have an I-140 application pending, then you can add your case information in the I-140 tracker, and so on.|
|You can discuss other cases already added to the tracker. The applicant whose case is being discussed is notified of every comment added to his/her entry. That way, the applicant can respond to other applicants' questions & comments, and help make the trackers more useful for everybody.|
|You can sort and filter data in the trackers to estimate where your case stands. Graphs are provided for you to analyze the processing trend for applications over the last 1-2 years.|
|You can see if the processing time for your application exceeds the average processing time of other applications.|
|Once a decision is made on your case, you must come back here to update your case status. This is a very important step that can help in making the trackers more useful for everybody.|
|You can provide valuable feedback on how to improve this tracker.|
|What does it mean to "watch" a case?|
|Trackitt allows you to watch particular cases you are interested in tracking. For example, you may want to watch cases that have a filing date close to yours, so you can watch the progress of those applications. You can add as many applications to your watch list as you like. |
You will receive an e-mail notification every time an applicant modifies the case you are watching. You will also receive a notification every time a user adds a comment to that case. Cases you are watching will appear with the icon in the tracker table. All other cases will appear with the icon.
To watch a case, click on the icon. To stop watching a case, click on the icon. That's all there is to it.
|Information displayed on the trackitt immigration trackers is added by applicants themselves, and is not extracted or compiled from any external source.|
|The idea behind these immigration trackers is that applicants benefit from each other by sharing their case information, because it enables them to estimate more accurately the time when their applications will be processed. However, there is no guarantee that any such benefit will be derived from the use of these immigration trackers.|
|Finally, users of these trackers are cautioned that because of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, it is impossible to determine with 100% certainty where users' applications are and how fast they are moving at any given point in time. There is a small but finite possibility that their applications will be found at the other end of the Universe.|
