I really didn't know how to name this question.
The problem is that our app should show a different home/start screen depending on the state the user is (Searching for a job/ inside of a recruitment process / Working).
Right now what we have done is to have it with 3 tabs and depending on the state they are the app opens on the right tab.
But after some user testing and focus groups a lot of user do not really understand the tab navigation. It might be the copy we are using but we are not 100% sure.
So my question is what would you do? or if you know of any other app that does something similar?
The most similar I can think of is Uber, where the start screen is search for a ride and then the user state change to riding and the apps open on the current ride. But our case is a little bit different
