What to expect while lodging for stage 2 (subclass 100) visa?

Lodging for subclass 100 (stage 2) is somewhat similar to (stage 1) subclass 309 temporary/provisional  . Also the URL for DIAC has changed and few other broken links have been updated in the prev log. This time have embedded the PDF in the log along with the attachment which can be downloaded.

The domain name changed from immi.gov.au to border.gov.au but the online immi.gov.au remains the same. 
Screenshots of the various pages after logging in the online immi account (https://online.immi.gov.au) is submitted. This will give a clear cut idea of what to expect. Given that all these information is or might be provided in border.gov.au.
