The new streamlined design for searching applications is live. There is now one simple search bar that performs all search functions.

Further, we had to make it easier to edit/delete “saved searches.”
So, we consolidated all functionality under one search bar. In order to accomplish this, several design improvements had to occur:
Not only does this simplify building search conditions, it also makes finding a particular applicant much easier if you don’t know the state of their application.
