@ MysticRiver - I've submitted my 190 EOIs on 31/01/2016 and waiting for an invitation. Today I just logged in to skillselect to see the status of my EOIs and just found that Date of Effect has changed to 28/08/2016. But the number of points has not changed and it remains the same. What could be the reason ?
I have n't update anything in my EOIs after submitting. By the way, my Date of Birth is 28/08/1985. Is there any thing to do with that ? But I'll be turning 32 on 28/08/2017.

Actually it shows in 'View Points Break down'. In home page it shows as 31/01/2016. Which one is correct ?

I see no reason that can cause your EOI date of effect to change, from the information you've provided.

So that means, 'Date of effect' in the home page is the correct one, and other one we should ignore ? But I have no idea why there are 2 contrasting dates of effects.... If you come across the reason in future, please update me. Many thanks :)

Ya, that sounds right. But it is very strange if they have conflicting dates.

Is it possible to post the screenshot here (obfuscate personal/confidential information like EOI number, email/user etc.).

These are the screenshots....

First one is the EOI home page which displays just after logged in.
Second one is the pdf which generates when we click the link 'View points breakdown'.

Hmm, strange, and I don't have any explanation. You can send an email to skillselect asking clarification.

Ok, I'll ask them and then let you know about their response.

@MysticRiver - Now they have added an asterisk sign in 'Points Breakdown' and mentioned as follows.

"*Date of Effect: Reflects the date the points were last calculated".

So, the issue solved I believe.

Hi Nadeesh,
The same had happened to my EOI which I had submitted at 70 points for Accountant. When I opened my EOI today it also reflected my dob as my date of effect, i submitted EOI on 17/10/2016 and now it has changed to xx/03/2017 (xx- exact date not revealing for security) which is my date of birth. Looks like the date of effect is resetting itself on the date of birth after the submission date. What the fish! My 5 months waiting in the queue killed in one shot.

Any more here in the same boat?

Hi There, I am in the same boat - have you been invited following the initial date 17/10/2016 ??
Thank you in advance
