  1. Cloning package should copy over (prepopulate) description as well as friendly name.

    I find myself having to go to the original deployed package to copy the description information or coming up with a new description for the cloned package. Would be nice to have this brought over from the original when cloning a package.

    • Allow for custom metadata permissions to be included with a single click when custom fields are being deployed

      For example; when adding new custom fields, you generally have to add the permissions as an additional line item to the deployment. Having a checkbox or something that will have gearset automatically add the permissions associated with the metadata currently in the deployment list would speed up the process. Users should also be allowed to deselect lines that were automatically added.

      • Provide a desktop notification from browser when a validation or comparison is completed

        It would great if browser notifications could be created/enabled to notify a user when a validation or comparison is complete when the user is off the the browser tab where the validation or compare is happening.

        • Multi-Select Filter on Deployment History Page

          It would be nice if the drop-down filter on the deployment history page allowed multi-select. My use case is filtering all successful deployments to production. Seems like it only supports one or the other now.

          • Allow us to configure a push notification when comparisons are done.

            It would be great if we could configure a notification when a comparison completes. Sometimes comparisons take a long time!

            • Ability to chose multiple targets for a deployment

              It would be nice to be able to deploy to multiple environments all at once from one source.

              • Add a "Clone Package" to the Validate packages tab

                Allow users to clone a validated package just like that can clone a deployed package.

                • Clone deployment with favorite source:target combos

                  We use Clone from Deployment History quite often. A typical use case would be:

                  Deploy from feat org F to branch
                  Do PR & merge to /master
                  .. CI runs
                  Upon successful CI
                  Clone deployment with source = master and target = QA org
                  Upon successful UAT
                  Clone deployment with source = master and target = PROD org

                  Rather than having to re-enter on the Clone dialog the source and targets, since they are always the same, it would be nice to "favorite" sources and targets (assigning a favorite name) and then reusing those favorite names on the Clone dialog

                  • Allow cached metadata to be changed during target deployment after seeing the difference. This will help us to fix environment specific item

                    Allow cached metadata to be changed during target deployment after seeing the difference. This will help us to fix environment specific item. This will specifically allow us to fix report folder, dashboard folder etc where the user in source org is not destination org. This will help us fix deployment issue with this tool rather than going back to Ant to fix such metadata during deployment.

                    • Implement a Deployment Fish

                      Salesforce Change Sets support a Deployment Fish to entertain the developer while waiting.

                      It would be nice if Gearset could provide the same behavior.

                      • Ability to save previously selected Source Control repos and branches with a friendly name

                        I do a lot of comparisions and deployments with Gearset. Currently it is annoyingly slow to have to click multiple dropdown lists to select my Git repo and branch. It would be great to be able to save my selected repo and branch with a friendly name so all I have to do is select that and it auto-selects everything else.

                          I understand the Draft Deployments are snapshots from when they were created or last refreshed. Is that right? Please show these fields on the Draft Deployments page.

                          • More Details for Open Draft Deployments: Show Name & Refresh Date

                            When you open a Draft Deployment it would be great to see its name on the deployment page as well as its refresh date. I understand that when you open a draft deployment you're seeing a snapshot from when it was created or refreshed.

                              It would be nice if Gearset could add support for the CspTrustedSite metadata type (https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_csptrustedsite.htm) to its supported metadata list.

                                • Please, please, please get US FedRAMP approval.

                                  The ability to use this product for CI/CD and various other use cases in the US federal space would be a huge win for many agencies. I know the FedRAMP process is quite arduous, but the contractual potential here is pretty massive.

                                  • Add deployment support for Macros

                                    Macros deserve to be added to source control yet there is no way to do this with Gearset:

                                    1) Data feature (paid add-on) doesn't deploy to/from source
                                    2) PRO/Enterprise can't source/target deploy Macros because it is not available with the Metadata API.

                                    Since macros represent some debugged logic, managing in source control makes sense. Curiously, SFDC has chosen to make Documents available via Metadata API but not Macros

                                    • Indicate whether a Validated Package is enabled for Quick Deploy

                                      T0 - You Validate a package to PROD (run all tests)

                                      T1 - You or someone else does a deployment of something else, no matter how minor, to PROD.

                                      T2 - You click Deploy of the Validated Package from T0, all the apex tests are rerun. This is by design per SFDC yet Gearset doesn't tell you in advance that Quick Deploy is not available. Something you think will take a couple of minutes now takes 30 minutes or more. You think you screwed up or Gearset is broken

                                      Suggestion: On Validated Packages page and on the page of a…

                                        For example, deployments to a production environment should only come from the master branch of our git repository

                                        • Sort order of Orgs ignores friendly name

                                          If you have friendly names for your org connections, the list of orgs presented on the Comparison page ignores these and instead sorts on sandbox name. Since the lines show friendly name left most; this is not natural to the human to see things out of order

                                          Example

                                          OrderFix (joe.blow@foo.com.story003)
                                          Invoicing (joe.blow@foo.com.story010)
                                          AlphaTest (joe.blow@foo.com.story091)

                                          when what the eye wants to see is:

                                          AlphaTest (joe.blow@foo.com.story091)
                                          Invoicing (joe.blow@foo.com.story010)
                                          OrderFix (joe.blow@foo.com.story003)
