LinkedIn is rolling out a simplified LinkedIn Account and Settings dashboard to help you navigate and find the right settings faster. This is how it will look like:
So what’s new?
- Top section highlighting important information about you and your LinkedIn account
- Bottom section organising settings into 4 tabs to reduce vertical scrolling and updated content to help you understand what each setting is about
- Popular FAQs related to Settings, a link to the help center for more information and feedback tool to provide us with your comments and suggestions
The above changes not only highlight your key LinkedIn account information at a glance, but also direct you to the right information you’re looking for (whether it be profile, applications, or email preferences page). LinkedIn has also incorporated a brand new FAQ section that should help.
Less clicks. Faster Navigation.
They’ve also added a new modal layer design for many of these settings, which surfaces your options as you click through them instead of taking you to a whole new page. Less clicks lets you change your settings faster.
Surfacing important information
And, finally from a design perspective, they’ve made the Accounts section flexible should your account have additional elements, while elevating key components you’re likely to be looking for.
Let us know what you think of the new design in the comments below!
