  1. Archiving and restore process

    Data archiving for storing records that can be easily accessed when marked as archived at an off-premise location. A backup and restore would be overkill when there is a need to store only partial records or a combination of fields from records in different objects. Restoring to a new object that does not interfere with existing objects would be ideal.

  3. Ability to recreate a reusable list or group for Deployment notifications

    Every week we have a larger sized scheduled deployment for logic updates that runs after business hours. There's usually the same 2-6 people (often increasing) that want to receive an email and/or text message when the deployment succeeds. Whoever schedules the deployment has to add each one manually every time, and it would be nice to have a way to send notifications to a predefined list or group of email addresses and/or phone numbers.

    It usually has to be the person that schedules the deployment, because if someone goes back to add their own email or phone to an already…

  4. Offer Canadian data residency.

    We have clients in Canada that require data residency for data backups/deployments and even metadata deployments/processing.

    Please add the option for a Canadian hosted Gearset account.

  5. Delta only validation CI jobs

    Idea is to have the Delta CI for Validation only Job, so the as well, so the validation process will become faster .

    The option of validating a PR in the deployment job does the same task, but is comparing too many items of metadata and it is taking too long.

  6. Add to draft deployment as you build

    Ideally I'd be able to add metadata to a draft from within salesforce - via a chrome addon maybe?

  7. Easier way to exclude multiple named items in the metadata filter.

    In the metadata filter named items, I want to exclude 10 named items. Currently I have to use the "exclude" Object name button 10 times. I want to tick all the 10 named items, that currently allow to include, and click a button to turn them into "exclude" in the named items.

  9. Approval process for metadata deployment

    It would be great to have a approval process for the deployment.

    For example, once we have completed the comparison and validation, we can click a button "e.g.: Submit for Approval" and an email will be sent to a list of email.
    In the email, receiver can review the summary of the deployment (e.g.: source org, target org, number of changed/new/deleted components, ...) and click on a link to approve or reject the deployment.
    We can deploy only when the job is approved.

  10. Select All Option in Deployment history

    It would be nice if we have the select all option in the deployment history to select multiple packages to combine in one go and deploy as one package into target.

  11. New Feature: Filter Custom Fields (and other sub-components) in Comparison Filters

    I'd like to be able to exclude certain custom fields from my comparison.

    For example we have fields that have environmental differences between orgs that we don't want to deploy. There are also random fields on standard objects that show up as "different" even though they aren't and it would be nice to filter them out.

  12. Change the Metadata Filters and make them first class

    I would like to see a change to the metadata filtering in general.
    Filter management has become a important part of our devops process as we seek to lower our comparison timing.
    Instead of having it at the bottom corner of the compare screen, move that section to the middle of the compare screen.
    In addition, add a side bar specifically for filters that allows you to edit or delete them as well as change the sharing between personal and team. I have example screenshots for suggested layout changes here: https://faef.box.com/s/frse8jnvqsxbl8ue05x641j3wlga1quy

  13. Clone Comparison from Comparison History

    Sometimes, you carefully craft a comparison between source org and VCS only to discover that you have targeted the wrong branch!

    It would be nice to go to the Comparison History tab, select your completed comparison and click Clone so you can change the source/target but preserve your selected metadata filters and selections

  14. Add XML tag as optional filter argument to Environment Variables feature

    Current Environment Variable feature uses search/replace logic across the entire metadata file. This is a bit "scary". Add optional 3rd argument for the specific XML tab within the file that you want to limit the scope of the search/replace to

  15. Add a Select All that works on filtered items when setting up filters

    When setting up the filters, I would like the ability to do a Select All on just the filtered items so that I don't have to manually select each one of them. This would be a huge time saver.

  16. hide lower upper case differences

    One thing that IDEs let you do is mass change your classes to conform variable references to the variable name using proper case

    e.g. Integer myFoo;

    referenced as myfoo++; // valid as apex is case insensitive

    same with [select id from account] which per proper typography should be [SELECT id FROM Account]

    since the IDE makes it so easy to do these mass changes; they still appear in the difference viewer as changed lines. It would be nice to extend the current "Hide reorderings" to also do "Hide upper/lower diffs"

    This makes scanning through diffs go much faster while encouraging…

  17. Filter Deployment History by Source / Destination

    At this time, there does not appear to filter deployment history by specific orgs AND other criteria in the general "filter" text box. I would like to find specific packages deployed to a specific org and also that have a standard friendly name. I am only able to enter text to filter by the friendly name and the additional filters allow for source / destination type, but it does not allow for specific source / destination.

  18. I want to be able to share 'delegate org access' with other team member(s) so they can visually see our security / deployment structure

    I want to be able to share 'delegate org access' with other team member(s) so they can visually see our security / deployment structure for reporting.

    In this example the fact that "user A owns the connections and has delegated the permission to user B" is not visible to user C. Ideally user C would be able to see that delegation information for auditing purposes.

  19. APEX Class Change

    APEX Class Changes Reporting

    It would be really cool if, through the monitoring side, if a summary Excel could be created. Excel could have multiple tabs: 1 tab per class change with four columns:

    col1 :original line #
    col2: original line value
    col3: new line #
    col4: new line value

    Header could include change DateTime, source/target orgs, Gearset ID, who, etc

    Thanks
    Ron

  20. Allow users to create customized list views on the deployment history tab

    It would be immensely helpful for our team, that works across dozens of production orgs and sandboxes, to be able to create deployment history filters (or list views like in Salesforce) that support filtering based on an org's mydomain, the username's domain, or the Gearset user that facilitated the deployment.
