Sure they do.
I had this mail from Accra Embassy after my interview on Nov 20, 2017 and put on AP with original educational documents withheld;
"Please be advised, your interviewing officer would like to have a follow up with you.
You are advised to make a follow up 221G appointment via our online scheduling system.
Please go to http://www.ustraveldocs.com/gh to create an account and register a profile or log in.
For return 221G appointments and rescheduled cases, the case number is sufficient to create an account and register a profile.
Once your profile is registered you may schedule your appointment."
What does this mean to my case?
Is it a complete interview all over again?
In preparing my profile, what is priority date?
From what you've posted, the e-mail is clear enough. It's a follow up. Mostly likely they have questions for you to answer or clarifications you need to give. Just follow the instructions...create the profile using your case number and schedule an appointment.
There isn't anywhere or at any point in creating a profile where you come across case number and priority date is not applicable to DV applicants but it is a mandatory field in the form. @Britsimon says I should use my case number but it is a date box strictly accepting only mm/dd/yyyy format.
In the image attached, reference is made to DS 260 Confirmation Number, but the email to create a profile stated the use of the case number. Which is appropriate in my case?
Use your priority date as the date of your interview (or the first day of the month in which you had the interview). It won't be "wrong" and will mean you can fill in the form.

*Submitted DS260;* 12TH MAY, 2017
*Unlocked DS260;* 23RD MAY, 2017
*Resubmitted DS260;* 24TH MAY, 2017
Waited patiently for KCC to release first VB for 2018 DV fiscal year_was not easy tho. Would always keep trails on Brit Simons blog the immigration.forum for the latest immigration news and interview experience.
Until October, 9th where the 2018 VB was finally released and 2weeks followed by 2NL_but unfortunately for me I didn’t make the cut for October Interview even tho I submitted my DS260 early...Wasn’t bothered but kept the Faith high and Finally got the November Interview.
Got to the Embassy around *9:15am*, went for something to eat since the main interview or entry time was *10:30am* I also took the opportunity to get my US Passport Picture Size. *At Exactly *10:00am* we were called to form a line_where the lady check your appointment letter wit her list to see if u really bn scheduled. Same appointment letters were taken at the Reception when you enter.
At *12:17pm* we were *(DV PA’s )* called to Window 3 and briefed about the whole process and given the opportunity to ask question we got. Being exposed to lots of interview experience from Brit Simons blog I felt equipped so no questions asked . The Gentleman at Window 3 Gabe each and every one a visa quotation sheet_printed on it was various visa fees for different Visa categories be it Family based, work etc. But DV visa fee was already ticked by the gentleman at window 3. We were instructed to write our names on it and directed to go make payment at the cashier....plz always carry smaller denominations with you, it gonna save u time and hustle_lolz.
In an hour and half we were called to *Window 2* msubmit documents *( ORIGINALS WITH PHOTOCOPY BENEATH)* and to take a seat after. It was in *”turns”* (one at a time ) the lady asked;
~ where I stay?
~ if am married?
~ got any kids?
After the little chat she instructed me to place my four fingers on the biometric laser machine for finger printing, she also gave me back documents not needed. Took about 3mins at *Window 2*
I sat for 45mins_later heard my name called to *Window 8*, she had a sunshine smile ; I told her “you look gorgeous this afternoon” she laughed and said you flattering me. I smiled back.
CO: So you are Frank, Right?
CO: alryt *Frankie* ( she called me Frankie...hahaha )_raise up your right hand day after me......( same old anthem) lol
Me: I swear to tell the truth
CO: ok, which year did you complete High School?
Me: I answered.
CO: What did you do after High School?
Me: I answered.
CO: Who is your host?
Me: My Brother
CO: wow! he also won the lottery? (I was shocked tho_how come she knew my brother also won the lottery) lol_background checks I guessed...hmm
Me: I said, yes he won in 2008_
she laughed and said then it runs through the family. We laughed together.
CO: last one Frankie what do you intend to do in the USA?
Me: Join the US Army Logistics Corps and take the opportunity to serve and get a degree in “Reverse Logistics”
CO: That’s good..can see you got big plans...( she was typing all the time and talking) The US Army got lot of logistics you know?
Me: I Smiled.
CO: Welcome to the United States Of America Frankie( she hand me a white paper with yellow filter highlighted. She circled www.ustravledocs.com/gh
to create profile)
I was head over heels, I felt like the whole world was mine that very moment.
ME: God Bless the United States Of America
she laughed out loud. And said please don’t forget to create the profile and be a good soldier.
