  1. Add an option to ignore package version differences in Apex classes

    I see many differences between apex classes where the only difference is the package version(s), no difference in the code itself. It would be nice to have an option to filter these out so that only the apex classes are shown where the code is different.

  2. Option to sort Custom Application XML

    While this can be done with VSC custom plugins for SFDX, I think it would be really beneficial if Gearset offered the ability to sort Custom App XML in comparisons in order to see what's actually changing between a source and target for lightning page activations. Due to the way SFDC generates this XML, the way page activations are ordered is very difficult to follow, and I think it's an opportunity to make that easier especially for declarative config users of Salesforce.

  3. Identify that metadata is the same, even if ordered differently by metadata API

    There are a lot of instances where the comparison will identify metadata as different, but the only difference is the way the API is ordering the XML. I've seen it happen a lot with picklist values on multi-select picklist fields. It would be nice to be able to turn this on/off somehow so that metadata that isn't truly different won't show up in the difference compare.

  4. Add an option to ignore location changes for Flow

    Hi, when reviewing changes for flows that are being deployed, it would be great to have a toggle option to hide or alternately color location changes which are just the location of elements on the flow canvas editor.
    <locationX>1353</locationX>
    <locationY>1305</locationY>

    Sometimes there are hundreds of location changes and it obscures the important information about what else changed.

  5. Add the ability to run the problem analyzer while on the comparison screen

    I originally was going to request the ability to append the items found in problem analyzer to the list of selected components, when going back to view the comparison, but then I thought why not take it one step further, and move the problem analyzer feature to the comparison screen? Then, the items it finds/suggests, the user can add them to the package there, or choose to ignore them.

  6. add the option to either hide source control locations where you do not have a connection, or allow a default SCM connection to be selected.

    We only use on source control service, so having to select 'Azure DevOps' before being able to select the repo/branch, is a small step that adds up over time.

    Being able to either hide services that you do not already have a connection for, or being able to default to a service, with the ability yo navigate back up and over, as needed. would be welcomed.

  7. Add an Undo Action/Functionality in the Comparison UI

    Add an Undo button to the comparison UI in case someone accidentally de-selects a component from the Selected Items tab. It would save time rather than having re-search for the component and lose your train of thought. You have this feature in Google Docs and sheets.

  8. Meta Comparison Filter Based on User and/or Timeframe

    It would be great if there was a way to create a metadata comparison filter, and not just filter with regard to metadata types, but also filter by which user made the change, or the timeframe when the change was made? For instance, it'd be great if I could create a filter based on changes I made within the past 30 days, or a specific timeframe. Filtering by metadata types takes very long for large orgs, even if I reduce the metadata types down to 1 or 2.

  9. Create new branch using type-forward / auto-complete from JIRA (or other supported tool)

    It would be great if you have JIRA connected, to make it easier to create your branch. So basically type-forward (-ish) functionality to identify a JIRA ticket and take the issue ID and description as branch name.

    Say your JIRA ticket is ISSUE-1234 Implement this awesome feature.

    The default branch name would be issue-1234-implement-this-awesome-feature.

    (Where it reads JIRA could be Azure or any other support tool of course).

  10. Increase the size of the 'Create new branch from...' modal.

    When creating a new branch from the 'Create new branch from...' model, it's hard because of the small size of the modal/dialog. Just sizing the modal/dialog larger would make it easier to work with.

  11. Prevent Accidental Backing Out of Deployment components when Deploying Multiple Packages

    Sometimes I have multiple packages that have been validated, that I am looking to deploy. If they happen to overlap components, then deploying in the wrong order could back out a change made by the earlier deployment.
    From this I came up with two ideas that could help:

    1) The ability to select multiple validated packages or draft deployments, and click a button that will tell me if they have overlapping components. That will let me know if I have anything to worry about; if they overlap then maybe I should combine them into one package.

    2) The ability to…

  12. Make "Hide Reodering" global switch

    Please add a feature to have globally selected "Hide Reordering" and also hide those files that have no changes after reordering from Changed Items?

    Clicking that on every file to see that there are no real differences is time consuming and slow down the comparison process.

    Scenario:
    1. I am comparing two sandboxes develop with my private sandbox to align with changes made on develop.
    2. I have comparison with many Global Value Sets, Custom fields which are Picklists, flows etc.
    3. Most of them are not changed but are listed as changes. I need to click on each metadata…

  13. Ignore "trackHistory" comparison if an Org has "FALSE" and Git does not define this entry

    The Salesforce CLI system returns the Custom Field Metadata XML file without a "trackHistory" entry if it is set to false. This XML entry is optional in the Custom Field metadata type. However, once we deploy such metadata to the org and execute compare between a branch and the org again, it shows differences, saying that "trackHistory == false". But is "false" by default. So I would recommend you ignore this entry if SF Org returns FALSE and the VCS file does not have this item.

  14. Pop Out Diff File in Comparisons

    The current UI design for comparisons is very unfriendly to smaller screens. When working on a laptop viewing the comparison and the Diff files together is nearly impossible. It would be useful to be able to pop out a diff file or open it in another tab so it can be better viewed.

  15. Make org-org and org-VCS compare differences work the same

    There is no end to confusion on the part of the devops user when Gearset displays differences "differently" when comparison is org-org vs. org-VCS

    For example: https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3491009-are-profile-permissions-showing-up-as-new-or-deleted-when-you-know-it-s-not-the-case

    Gearset should apply a consistent principle - to see a Profile subcomponent, the compare filter should include both sides of the subcomponent (e.g. Profile + ApexClass to see ApexClassPermissions; Profile + Layout to see layoutAssignments; etc.)

    If both sides of the subcomponent are not included in the filter, then there's no difference to show.

    Note that these use cases must also be supported:

    Profile deleted in org; org->VCS compare should delete .profile file…

  16. r.uzdavines@nextech.com

    It would be great if I could group my Selected Items into groups or Projects, so that I could filter and just see those. Now that I've added a bunch of items for different projects, it's a little hard to quickly decipher which project it applies to. I'd like to be able to double check each Project's list right before deploying to make sure I've added everything. Maybe you can add another column and allow the user to create new values for "Projects."

  17. Rename the Name bar in compare and deploy to : Name (api)

    Simple to implement, just a string rename...
    Rename the Name bar in compare and deploy to : Name (api)
    It would show clearly that the name displayed there is the API name, not the "label" name XD
    Cheerio

  18. sfdx repo deployment should be in subcomponents

    Context: Compare and Deploy from Org to a Repo.

    as i understand it, even if my repo is in SFDX format (Object subcomponents), Gearset still does the compare in the metadata format.
    it reads the components from sfdx, combines into a .object form, and then applies the changes to the .object file and then decomposes again.

    this is causing unintentional changes to be part of our PR

  19. Enhance Metadata Filter Type Recognition

    Our team has struggled learning the Metadata API names of metadata types when compared to what items are called in change sets. One example would be to highlight Weblink when a user searches for Button.

  20. To add capability to mark (to ignore) not selected items to be able to remember that the particular item is not required to be deployed

    When compare source and target, sometimes u do an educated decision to NOT select something, and then selecting the rest of the items. Then if the compare results saved as a Draft Deployment, u may return back to it, and do a refresh for the comparison. In this case Gearset would kindly save all of the selected items. But for items that were not selected by the user, not they are mixed up with the new differences. So user have to remember, that this particular item he did not select intentinally, but this item that is not selected is a…
