Fall 2022 Off-Cycle Features
Off-cycle features are released outside of the standard seasonal release window of the Product Release in which they are included. To learn more about season release schedules, refer to our help article how and when updates are made to the Lever platform.
Data compliance - Field-specific anonymization by location (LeverTRM)
Configure which data fields are removed when a candidate is anonymized on a per-country basis to ensure compliance with local data privacy regulations. To learn more, refer to our help article on configuring localized data compliance settings.
Updates to data compliance settings (LeverTRM)
Following the release of this update, a Lever environment can only have either the 'Data compliance' setting enabled or the 'GDPR' setting enabled, but not both. If you had both 'Data compliance' and 'GDPR' enabled prior to December 2022, the 'Data compliance' setting will have been disabled with the release of the product update and your Lever environment will have reverted to solely relying upon your GDPR configuration to manage data collection, retention, and anonymization. Any country-specific data retention periods that you configured in your 'Data compliance' setting prior to December 2022 will have been saved. To restore your country-specific data retention periods, simply re-enable the 'Data compliance' setting.
- When Data Compliance is enabled, Lever abides by country-level configurations for data collection, retention, and anonymization.
- When GDPR is enabled, Lever abides by GDPR settings for data collection, retention, and anonymization.
To learn more, refer to our help article on understanding the difference between Data compliance and GDPR settings.
