Suggested edits do load after activation - a user does not need to do any additional actions after clicking on 'Get suggestions' on the second intro overlay, however, there is T238037: Newcomer tasks: on mobile 'Suggested edits' activation will flash 'Start here' module and Homepage.
Closing this task as resolved since the scope of the issue was to eliminated redundant user actions - this is done.

Thanks -- I see this fixed in beta. I'll leave it in my column until we are good in production.
