  1. Show/Flag what unlocked package elements are getting updated on Monitoring Jobs

    When you look at the details of a monitoring job there is a field called "Packages Afftected" that shows green when is 0 and orange when >0.

    There is a description that says...

    Unlocked packages have been modified. View the comparison to see details.

    However, when you look at the details there is nothing there to see what unlocked package element was modified. So the warning it is not very helpful at all.

    Can this be implemented so that the warning is actionable.

  2. The Action Order in the XML should follow the sortOrder

    Sometimes there is a difference between a object because the order of the platformActionListItems are different. Sometimes an item with order 0 comes first, but it is possible that an item with 9 comes first. This is probably an error in Salesforce API, but Gearset should order this list before the comparison so 0 will always be the first item.

  3. Move the configured regex filters to the top of the scrollable pane (currently at bottom) of

    Move the regexes to the top of the pane so one can see they exist and not have to guess that they exist at the bottom of the pane.

    Note the example, selects all custom objects - this is useful for ISVs

    example: For custom object, there are 100+ entries for standard and custom objects. If you add a regex, it appears at the bottom of the scrollable pane, after all the enumerated objectnames. Coming back into a custom filter, it is not obvious that you had even created a regex as you would have to know to scroll to…

  4. Add "Manage Custom Filters" button next to Metadata Comparison Filter dropdown

    I find myself always going into the "Manage custom filters" screen as it allows you to see what metadata you're including and even change the selected filter.

    To get to that screen always requires a click on the drop down (Metadata Comparison Filter) and then another click at the very top on "Manage Custom Filters".

    It'd be great if the "Manage Custom filters" gear/button was displayed on the main UI next to the "Metadata Comparison Filter" to save time (avoid clicking on the dropdown) and allow users to quickly get to the Manage Custom filters screen which contains all you…

  5. Include the local file name on all the results screens

    When you choose a local file to use as compare, on every subsequent screen the only title you see is: "On-disk repository". It would be helpful to include the name of the file.

  7. Add support for "ServiceCrew" and "ServiceCrewMember"

    These two objects are part of the FSL package for Salesforce. Right now, when we do a compare between two orgs, no results with be shown.

  8. Add support for the WorkSkillRouting metadata type

    WorkSkillRouting is a key object in the configuration of Skills-based Routing for omni-channel (using Attribute Setup, not apex class), please add support for this object to enable comparison and deployment.

  11. Make All Items show all items in the filter

    On the comparison summary the All Items tab does not show items that don't exist in either org.

    It is possible to add an item that does not exist in any org (perhaps by mistyping the name of a class/object/trigger/etc.) but the All Items tab does not show those items. It would be helpful if even items that don't exist in either of the comparison orgs were displayed in the All Items list and flagged as not existing. This will make debugging problems like mistyping names easier to diagnose.

    I wasted an hour of my time and that of two…

  12. Add a tab for Items that the Items I Selected Depend On

    It would be so cool if there could be a tab that shows all the items that my selected items depend on. It would be much easier to review / select them then the way I do it now, which is expanding each item in the Selected Items tab to check for things I need to add.

    Thanks!

  13. Separate the Custom Settings <object> Permissions and Metadata Type permissions from the Profile or Permission set

    When promoting Custom Objects and their security, we have to look at Custom Object Permissions (after loading the respective Profiles and Permission Sets in addition to the Custom Objects). We should follow a similar model for Custom Settings and Custom Metadata Types. The reason is that, if they remain part of the Profile or Permission Set, then I have to make sure that the Profile or Permission set exactly matches what I want in the target environment - I can't have any extra Custom Settings or Metadata Types that don't exist in the target environment yet or the promotion will…

  15. Options to pick only selected custom labels metadata for salesforce.

    Since the custom labels metadata can’t be picked individually, the Gearset compare and validate process would pull in all custom label changes. This would be a concern if we want to withhold any particular custom labels from being pushed to higher environment.

  16. Allow users to discard chunks/certain changes before deploying to target

    For example I'm on the diff screen and I see my page layout has 5 changes/chunks of changes, but I only want to commit/deploy the first one - please add functionality so that I can discard/ignore the other 4 changes in the file and only deploy the one change I want.

  17. swapping source and target after compare

    I was doing compare between our 2 orgs (Source: UAT, Target: DEVSTG) and I realized that I got the order wrong. Should be (Source: DEVSTG, Target: UAT). But the compare has already completed.

    I wish there is a way to just flip (swap) the source and target without re-comparing as it takes some time comparing between orgs.

  18. Improve CI validations jobs - allow incremental comparisons with Github Pull Request/Push Validations

    Currently, the only way to validate a branch, push, or pull request is to essentially have gearset pull all metadata from the repository and the org.

    This can result in a long wait time for validation. It'd be great if we could have quicker turnaround for users to get feedback after a push/pull request.

    Since github/provider of choice would have the exact metadata that changed in the push/pull request, it'd be helpful to only have gearset pull the metadata that actually changed to limit how much time is spent simply pulling all metadata to make the comparison.

  20. Ability to Compare metadata filters

    When we have too many metadata filters, it is getting hard to keep track of them and figure out the similarities between them. It would be great to have an option to compare custom metadata filters.
