Improvements 2018-2019


The following is a list of feature improvements released in 2018 and 2019 outside of Lever's major seasonal release windows. Improvements are listed in reverse chronological order, with the most recent improvements listed at the top:

October 24th - November 5th, 2019

  • Speed Performance Improvements: This Fall, we’ve continued to make improvements to our Chrome extension, job page and candidate page load time. In an effort to ensure you continue to have a good user experience while using Lever, we’ve made significant progress to the performance of Lever and will continue to make improvements in our seasonal releases for a faster platform.

  • Lever Talent Intelligence Enhancement: We’re happy to introduce a modernized redesign set of default dashboards for Lever Talent Intelligence. The significant redesign allows customers to get started immediately with standard dashboards, then collaborate with our team of experts to tailor more sophisticated analysis to their needs. 

  • Native Microsoft Office 365 Integration Enhancements: Our improvements to the native Microsoft O365 integration allow you to reschedule interviews on shared calendars from within Lever, even if you didn’t create the event. You can now rely on admin consent when granting permissions to Lever. Admin Consent gives you greater control over who at your company can log into Lever, and reduces user error as individuals do not need to sync their email and calendar on their own. Learn more.

  • Duplicating Requisitions: Team Members and Limited Team Members can now duplicate any existing requisition they have access to (Admins and Super Admins will continue to be able to duplicate requisitions as well). 

  • Offer Approval Compensation Band: We’ve improved the logic that triggers conditional approvals for offers based on compensation. If either a minimum or a maximum value is not specified, the conditional approval will still trigger if applicable. 

  • Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 Deprecation: Lever recently announced the deprecation support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1. We want to ensure we are aligning with industry best practices for data security and integrity. 

  • Updates for accounts with Opportunities: We have made improvements to emailing candidates in bulk, and added tools to support GDPR compliance. Please note: The version of Lever using Opportunities will continue to be released in the coming months.
