  1. Suggest related metadata for selected types in filter

    Gearset provides some very useful documentation on the importance of including groups of related metadata in a filter.

    https://docs.gearset.com/metadata-deployment-guides/using-gearset-to-deploy-profiles

    It would be very helpful if the Manage Filters dialog implemented these suggestions. For example, when a Profile is included in the filter, the user should be prompted to also select Profile Password Policy, Profile Session Setting, External Data Source, Apex pages, Layouts, and Custom Objects. Otherwise, the likelihood of Gearset assembling an accurate Profile without all of the related components will be slim.

    Gearset obviously has deep knowledge of metadata semantics and dependencies. The Manage Filter page needs to reflect…

  2. Show *all* matching items on All Items, even if they haven't been changed.

    I couldn't find a field that I was looking for today, despite searching for it specifically, because it was hidden inside it's parent object. I understand that the reason for this was something to do with there being no difference on the field (and I appreciate that the reason is to avoid clogging up the screen!), but if you're searching for a specific field, I think it should really show up...

    Took me bothering someone on live chat to figure out what was going on.

  3. Display the Filter used in the Comparison history screen

    It would be helpful in finding the right comparison to look at if you could see on the Comparison History screen which filter was used. It would also be helpful when looking at the comparison details to know which filter was used.

  4. Selection Count Mismatch

    The Selection count on ‘Compare and Deploy’ page doesn’t match with ‘Items Selected’ on ‘Draft Deployment’ when a draft deployment is opened. Having this in sync will help user that all selections are going in the deployment.

  5. Be able to exclude single items from comparison

    E.g. If I generally want to include all Custom fields for all Objects in the comparison, but there’s one specific field that I don’t ever want to send across to the target org, it’ll keep popping up and I’ll have to uncheck it each time.

  6. Track Items Added to Draft Packages

    It would be nice to be able to see which items within a comparison are part of Draft Packages. We have a need to build multiple packages from a single Comparison of Instances. This can be done by creating many Drafts, but it is sometimes difficult to know if items have been added to a draft package already. If we could visually see this, it would allow us to generate and confirm our packages much faster.

  7. Add option to suppress managed custom fields in comparison results

    When comparing Custom Objects that contain the managed custom fields there is no way to suppress the managed custom fields. The fields would show up in the comparison results even without being requested. The problem analyzers then highlights and remove these managed custom fields.

    This is cumbersome when repeated and makes finding genuine differences we care about more difficult.

    From the problem analyzers, it sounds like Gearset is able to identify the managed custom fields. Therefore could there be an option under [Include managed package] in the Custom Filters that allows the suppression of known managed fields in comparison results?

  8. give the ability to ignore certain changes between Sandbox and Production enviornments

    After deploying from a Sandbox to a Production environment, you will always see a 'change' for Custom Objects and Custom Fields because there is no Encryption Scheme (for example)

  9. Deploy single layoutitems

    In Layouts there are multiple layoutItems. it would be helpful if we could to deploy single <layoutItems> from a Layout without affecting other <layoutItems>.

  10. Show the Label as a column in the comparison screen

    At present the comparison screen, Name column, only shows the information from the API name, but not the Label (as seen in Setup > Object Manager > Label column).

    When the Label is wildly different from the API name, is would be super useful to have the Label displayed as a column, instead of having to find it in the XML viewer.

  11. Allow the ability to "uncheck" No DIfference items on the Selected Items tab

    When cloning previous deployments, there are may cases where items may have been previously deployed, so the now would show as "No Difference". Currently these items can not be unselected for the deployment. It would be useful to be able to remove these from a current deployment to keep the deployment clean.

  12. Better pre-selection of repos & branches

    My reasoning for the need:
    Every day when comparing, I have to choose one github repo out of 343 (46 of mine + 297 from an org I'm a part of). Yes I know I can type some characters and it will search the list of repos, but it's still unpractical. It sometimes looks like it remembers the choice, but I think it doesn't quite work after logout and I have to select the repo from the long list too often.

    The bare minimum that would bring me pleasure:
    The last used repo I used for any comparison would always…

  13. Provide browser notification when refresh draft deployment completes

    It is cool that Compare tells you via a desktop notification / browser tab change when the comparison is done. The notification feature should be extended to Draft Deployment - Refresh Comparison as this can take some time as well

  14. Allow XML package for org snapshot/daily monitoring

    Allow XML package for org snapshot/daily monitoring. This is to take the previous day's design to be downloaded in xml format that we can open in eclipse IDE.

  15. Filter on selected items

    I want to quickly be able to identify components that have not been reviewed by only seeing unselected items in the "Changed items", "New items" and "Deleted items" top level filters.

    seeing the ones I have already selected slows down productivity and I have to scroll through them. If I want to see them I can always look at the "All items" section. This information is also available in the difference type column.

  16. Show rows that have no set "Changed On" date when applying a date filter.

    Currently the moment you deselect a single specific date, all blank dates are also filtered out.

    I would expect only the items with the given date be removed from the list.

    This has become apparent now that the sort order of dates in the pulldown bug has been fixed.

  17. FLS selection for Source control

    while deploying a field to source control. we just want to move profile FLS of that only field. FLS was not displayed on the components drop down of profile. we are only able select profile so that whole object's FLS are getting deployed to the Source Control.

  18. show which deployment each metadata was a part of when doing a bulk clone.

    When doing a bulk clone, each metadata should show what previous deployment it was a part of as to allow us to verify that the bulk clone worked. Another use case is that it would allow us to find a deployment we know has changed and be able to remove or change the metadata quickly.

  19. Need a Lock to the Custom comparison filters

    We need a lock to the custom comparison filters so that the team will be on the same page and only the deployment manager can be responsible for all the deployments

  20. Allow adding "No Difference" items to package. To help with package reuse to multiple orgs

    Allow assets with "no difference" to be added to a promotion to allow the same package to be used to both promote as well as sync other sandboxes (without having to manually check if asset was changed in each).
