Enable Modern Design for a Test Brand
The modern designs can be enabled without the need for complex code or customization. All you need to do is upload two logo files and choose a color for each brand. We'll automatically incorporate those brand assets in the new design across the workflow.
Users with Admin access are able to turn on the new modern design setting. Please connect with that person on your team to proceed with the following steps.

Test Modern Design for a Test Opening
Modern Design Best Practice
In your testing, you'll probably find that stages with a lot of text and content look cluttered with this new design. To keep the integrity of the modern design and simple look, we recommend:
Removing custom CSS or HTML that is no longer necessary (e.g. typeface formatting)
You'll notice that the Switch to HTML Editor is no longer available for the Modern Design. We recommend using the new designs and NOT inputting any custom code. However, it is still possible to add your own code by simply turning off the Modern Design in Brand, inputting the code as you did before, then turning the setting back to ON. This process can be used for editing existing code or adding new code(e.g. embedding a video) as needed.
Limit custom text to 50-75 words or fewer
Show the Progress Bar and list of stages in the Applicant Portal
If the Progress Bar and the list of stages are NOT showing on your Applicant Portal, you may have disabled the setting to show all your stages to applicants. Go to Company Settings and under Applicants section, check the checkbox that says, "Make all stages in an opening visible to applicants".
Limit data collection forms to 5-7 questions or fewer
Only include photos in your stage details when absolutely necessary
Use custom stage as an informational stage if you have a lot of text/content to display
Add/edit text to the Pop-up Modal
Pop-up Modal is the pop-up box that appears before the stage and is currently available for the Form Description and Success Message in Data Collection stages. We will be adding the pop-up modal in more places in the later releases!
The Form Description will show up as a pop-up modal when the applicant first lands on the stage. In the Data Collection Stage settings page, click Customize fields for data collection stage. Then edit the text in the Form description section.
The Success Message will show up as a pop-up modal when an applicant completes the stage. In the Data Collection Stage settings page, click on Customize portal view. Then edit the text in the Success Message section.
