  1. Save Filtered Metadata from a Comparison View as a New Custom Filter

    When running a compare, we'll often filter the list of metadata types in the results to eliminate types we're not interested in comparing. It would be nice to save the filtered view as a new Metadata Filter for use in a future compare.

  2. Button for 'All the Differences' that gives all additions, deletions, and changes

    I'd love to have a button for 'all the things' (new, changed, and deleted). Currently, every time I run a compare, I use the All button and then turn off 'No Difference' on type.

  3. Allow for Scheduled Comparisons

    Like Monitoring Jobs, allow users to choose a source, target, and metadata filter, and schedule when a comparison runs.

    The primary goal of this would be time savings. To have that data already retrieved and cached so you can go in, make your selections, and move toward deployment more quickly. Possible applications include recurring deployments, planning out your workday, etc. This addition would be for non-Integration users.

  4. quote term

    For CPQ Quote Term, the name column only shows "Approved" which is not meaningful.
    Please switch to using the "Name" field which is a auto generated number (e.g. QT-0209) that is displayed in the user interface and therefore a meaningful identifier.

  5. Make Custom Filters a Top-Level Menu Item

    Filters are arguably the best part of gearset, especially with the support for RegEx. It is kind of a bummer that they are tucked away in a modal that can only be reached by clicking into a dropdown. Ideally you could just go to Hamburger > Metadata Deployments > Custom Filters and be routed to a dedicated page.

  6. Add issues from the problem analyzer to the comparison list

    When I find issues in the problem analyzer, if I accept them, they only add the things that I have selected, but I can't add any related elements without going back to the comparison.

    For example, if I miss a custom field in the comparison, but the problem analyzer flags it, I don't have any way to add the permissions for that field.

    Instead, I have to go back to the comparison and add that missed field and then it's related features (this is a big problem if the analyzer flags a number of issues).

    Having a button in the…

  7. Ability to Filter Out Namespaced Metadata

    I figured the best way to write this out was in the form of some sub-par user stories.

    As a Salesforce Admin, I need the ability to do a comparison of two orgs/repos and have it show only non-namespaced metadata so that I can easily distinguish between things I own and manage vs what are from managed packages.

    As a salesforce Admin, I want to be able to indicate that I want to hide all namespaced metadata while still being able to show custom fields I create on a namespaced object so that I can quickly deploy new custom fields.

  8. allow selecting of specific picklist values when deploying changes to picklist fields

    Essentially would like to be able to cherry pick the values for a picklist value that is being deployed from a lower sandbox. Basically what you did with Precision Layout deployment for page layouts. There are times when we do not want to deploy all of the new/different values for a picklist field.

  9. Multiple metadata comparison filter selection

    Having multiple comparison filters to target specific metadata is handy but sometimes you need some additional components for a deployment (e.g Flow & Custom Fields).

    The ability to select more than one metadata comparison filter would be a great help and would save on the number of custom filters created and shared.

  11. Filter on UNselected items when choosing metadata to compare

    When selecting metadata to compare, there is a picklist that says "Filters" and has an option for "Selected Only." Please add a second option for "Unselected Only" so I can quickly verify that I haven't left anything out without my eyes being distracted by checkboxes and items I know I already selected.

  13. Compare Active Version of flows not the newest Flow

    When comparing flows please compare the active version of flows, not the newest version. This would align with how change sets handle flow.
    Example:
    Version 2 and 3 exist in source. Version 2 is active and version 3 is draft. I want to deploy Version 2 that is active not the inactive flow.

  14. Inline editing of metadata

    https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/38358922-inline-editing-of-metadata

    The idea above was "closed" due to Environment Variables.

    That feature is too fiddley for our use case as the change that needs to be performed is not consistent. Furthermore, that feature does not help with handling merges.

    Gearset has some merging capabilities, but it only allows to select one file or another, instead of merging changes from both files.

    I'm aware it is possible to perform merges from source control, though it would be easier to train our team if they did not have to learn another technology. Furthermore, it leaves the process to more faults as the…

  15. Profile Comparison within Same Org

    It would be useful to be able to compare profiles within the Same Org to allow for improved Security analysis and deployment.

    Use Case: Developer added new functionality in Sandbox and applied it to only a few of the profiles that were specific to that story. Now there is a new to expose that functionality to more users, but need an easy way of knowing which profiles are missing the needed functionality without going through each individually.

  16. Saved Comparisons should be visible to team members

    I have a team that has access to Gearset but unfortunately they cannot view the Saved Comparisons I've created. To reduce unnecessary time spent on creating and maintaining Saved Comparisons, it would be greatly appreciated if the Saved Comparisons could be shared with the team and possibly allow the owner to delegate access to the Saved Comparisons.

  18. 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…

  19. Make it available to commit custom labels that are part of a managed package

    Custom Labels of managed packages do not show up in the comparison because they cannot be changed and therefore are not deployable. However, the (override) translations of these Custom Labels do show up and are deployable. It is possible to deploy & commit the translations but this poses an issue if you commit to git since gearset suggests to leave them out of the commit because they are missing a dependency. If you ignore the suggestion and commit them anyway, they'll be removed the next time the repo cleaner runs. This way, it cannot reliably be kept in git.

  20. Show Formula Comparisons line by line

    When comparing formulas (in validations, formula fields, workflow criteria...) the comparison should be done line by line.

    Considering the whole formula a block and only showing that "something" has changed in the formula is not useful when looking for conflicts between environments.

    When pushing changes between environments, admins are checking to make sure they are not overwriting other changes with their update. They most probably know the formula has changed (that was their job) but they need to ensure no unwanted changes are added/deleted from the target environment.

    In long formulas with many lines (potentially >100) it's not easy to…
