1st Version Challenges
Complicated UX and UI
The UX on some pages is not intuitive enough. Tricky navigating around the product
Forcing to Add a lot of an unnecessary data
The system requires to select of 3 Ideal Candidates to build a model
Difficulty in using the “Ideal Candidate” function. The search and selection of Candidates are not clear
Challenging to get started and generally takes too long to build a model and all next edits after
There is too much noise on the word cloud page - the analysis of ideal candidates is not smart enough
No guided flow, for many users was not clear what’s next to do
1st Version Flow
Selected Critical Design Priorities
Re-imagine the user journey experience and general UX/UI design
- Simplify role building process with fewer steps to build the initial model
- Made more user friendly and clear navigation
New candidate search experience and inputs build a structure
- Redesign adding and editing inputs process and restructuring inputs categories
- New clean flow for interaction with candidates
Switch to existing graphical libraries and UI components
- Use UI libraries that are compatible with our technology stack, versus built-our own

First Ideas and Drafts
Sam, the Recruiter, quickly creates and hones in on the desired Actionable Candidates in Censia TIP based on their company’s Ideal Candidate that aligns with Jill's requirements and Aaron’s Workforce criteria.
Aaron, Ada, and Danielle easily collaborate together in Censia TIP to manage their Workforce: Succession & Development, Workforce Analytics & Reporting, and Workforce Planning.
Ada and Danielle use Censia TIP’s Talent Management and Talent Intelligence to easily align their company’s Workforce strategy, current status, near term to future term goals, and actions to ensure their company’s continued success.
The main task was to reduce the number of actions and pages for building the 1st list of candidates.
The solution was found to minimize the initial number of steps and pages for building the role and set all inputs as optional in order to customize the specific searches that users can perform later after checking the first candidate's results.
The main goal was to reduce the 8th-pages process to only 2 pages.
Another part of the work was focused on improving interaction directly with candidates: candidate sorting, ranking, contacting, export...

New section structures have been designed for the main search categories to solve the complexities of text clouds.
Which simplified navigation and editing ability.
Other improvements that were defined and improved in the process
“Exclude” and “Must-have” priority to inputs.
A complex feature that was unintuitively disjoined from the main inputs section, and nested in the additional tray. Which required a user to do the double job of entering data like titles, skills, education, companies, priority
“Exclude” and “Must-have” priority integrated into inputs. Made one universal element input (tag) for selecting special priority for each type of term, we use a specific color code for easy catching
Candidate profile card
Low amount of data about candidates and doesn’t show some overall and Highlights information about candidates Candidate Profile Card V2
More detailed new Candidate Profile Card with the ability to customize order and view of content
