Simply hit Add Friend to send a friend request (and meet someone else without losing the current match). Notice that there is no "friends management" in this iteration—the list of chat rooms essentially serves this purpose.
A number of aspects we'd love to improve are:
Lastly, the third leg of the stool: the product that researchers (Vetty employees) use to actually conduct the background checks.
This is a basic researcher workflow. Note that it is divided into 3 stages:
Generally, teams of researchers are assigned to different accounts, with each member taking on a specific phase. Due to Vetty's limited resources, individual researchers take on their own accounts and conduct all 3 phases.
The main focus of the researcher dashboard is the "Adjudication Needed" column, which uses a simple "yes" or "no" to indicate when there is a pending task. Hovering over the cell in the column brings up more detailed information.
Because researchers are trained users, the dashboard can adopt more complexity for more power. Below, custom components that allow each column to be independently searchable:
Much like the client portal (for account managers), the candidate details are where most of the tasks are done:
The researcher portal is now undergoing a major redesign to accommodate larger teams. Stay tuned!
