Please note that enabling this requires SAP Professional Services or Partner Team engagement. Also, if there are any applications in the withdrawn statuses (Deleted On Demand By Candidate / Deleted on Demand By Admin / Declined DPCS / Withdrawn By Candidate) DPCS 2.0 can be not reverted/disabled. It is recommended to first configure DPCS 2.0 in the test instance before moving changes to production environment.

Also - enabling DPCS 2.0 for internal or external candidates will require ALL already existing candidates to accept the statement. It won't be possible to proxy as internal candidate and apply on his behalf as long as the candidate doesn't log into instance and accepts the DPCS 2.0 statement. This will also happen each time the statement text is edited.
