Data compliance - Configure lawful basis by country (LeverTRM)

To learn more, refer to our help article on configuring localized data compliance settings.
hcaptcha upgrade (LeverTRM)
We have upgraded our hcaptcha implementation with even stricter privacy controls. With this upgrade, applicants will be verified without having to complete an hcaptcha challenge 99.9% of the time when submitting applications. In addition to improved privacy, this upgrade also provides a more seamless applicant experience.
Reporting Warehouse Schema
Data Warehouse Sync as well as Snowflake Data Sharing schema will be updated to include an additional column in the 'postings' table to capture the 'workplace type' field. To support this update, there will also be the addition of a new enum table that contains the available values for the workplace type field. These changes provide classification for onsite, remote, and hybrid postings. You can find the most current documentation on our schema here: https://cdn.lever.co/dws-documentation/index.html
