An update on my husband’s case. He “missed” his appointment in Feb 23, although had told SEF in advance he couldn’t make it, our lawyers were trying to swap his appointment for my baby who’d not been invited. This failed and my husband then fell in the black hole and wasn’t invited again. However our baby was recently invited for first time. Our lawyer petitioned SEF for my husband to go at same time, on basis our baby is a minor and can’t go alone. And yesterday - SEF called our lawyer and invited my husband on the same day as our baby! Now my husband is a pilot and has no flexibility, but he’s of course trying to move heaven and earth to get there, without losing his job.
Thought this would be of interest as I know there are few examples of people being invited again - we were about to file a case! Maybe SEF are starting to get on top of things?
As long as you’re logged in to your Nomad Gate account it should load your timeline automatically (I’ve populated it with the data from the sheet created by @loheiman—so as long as you entered either your NG username or email there it should match).
If you’re not logged in you’ll also see the option to enter an email address to submit or update timelines without needing a Nomad Gate account. So if you used a different email address than the one you use for NG, you can use this option.
The crowdsourced data is available in the views listed here (more to come, I just added the two basic views for now):
Keep in mind this is an early version, so feedback and bug reports more than welcome!
Update: I’ve created a new thread to discuss this tool, so please leave your feedback and comments there:

None. Everything went smooth for me. My wife had her appointment in Guarda end of Feb and is awaiting approval. They wanted an additional document for her - declaration of no debt certificate (Certidao de nao divida à autoridade tributaria) which we submitted within a week.
Our lawyer btw had sworn that this document wasn’t required for the dependent (it was submitted for me during my biometrics), but ended up being required. Now just hoping that her final approval doesn’t take too much longer…
In Dec 22 they opened until end March 23. In mid-March 23 they opened until end June 23. In June they opened to Sept. If they keep to the same trajectory, by mid-Sept they will open again for another period of 3 months (Oct-Dec 23).
If you think you will be in the next batch of invitees, it would be wise to make sure that your documents are updated so that you can accept an early appointment as soon as slots are opened.
