USCIS : Your Case Cannot be Found at This Time in Case Status Online

Hello! I have a problem with my receipt number given by my employer. Every time I check my status USCIS Case Status online it says “ Your case can not be found at this time in Case Status Online. Please check your receipt number and try again.”

I emailed my employer regarding this, and she told me that it’s natural because some of the applications are not updated in the USCIS online. I’m wondering with her response, she said the company filed my application April 1 but still no update. Anyone here has the same problem with me? thanks!
