1st Version Challenges

 

Based on customer's and stakeholder's feedback

 

  1. Complicated and not intuitive enough navigating around the product
  2. Difficulty in using the “Ideal Candidate” function (The system requires to select of 3 Ideal Candidates to build a list of candidates)
  3. Forcing users to add a lot of an unnecessary data
  4. There is too much noise on the word cloud page
  5. Challenging to get started (No guided flow, for many users, was not clear what’s to do next)
  6. The search and selection of Candidates are not clear 
  7. Takes too long to build the first list of candidates and all next edits after

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 

 

(React: Plotly, DevExtreme’s Data Grid, Material UI…)

 

First Ideas and Drafts

Drafting Ideas

The main task was to reduce the number of actions and pages for building the 1st list of candidates.

  1. Simplifying the initial number of inputs and using only a one-page approach for building the role. 
  2. The "Ideal Candidate" feature became optional.
  3. Now users can tune the specific searches later, after checking the first candidate's results.

 

The second task was focused on improving interaction directly with candidates (candidate sorting, ranking, contacting, exporting, setting interviews...)

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

 

Solution

 

“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

 

Solution 

 

More detailed new Candidate Profile Card with the ability to customize order and view of content

Stages for Candidates

 

Originally the product has only one option to select /add to favorite for candidates (star button)

 

Solution 

 

In the new version was added a new feature that allows users to mark candidates and allow them to separate into different groups and filtered in the candidate funnel

Final Visuals

V2 Achievements

 

 

 

New smart workflow that works for the Novice User and Advanced Power User

 

Total flexibility in editing and extracting data with new search methods 

 

Identify highly qualified and capable candidates now in seconds

 

New clean flow for work with candidates

 

A new design environment that allows integrating new features and sub-product easier and with a native look everywhere 

 

Added new features like "Anonimus search", "Quick Search" "Company Search", "Candidate Portal"...
