  1. Force-deploy Flow translations with no difference

    At the root of this, the main problem is that if you create a new flow version through the SFDC flow editor interface, the flow will have a new version of the flow translations based on the previous translations.

    But if you DEPLOY a flow, the new flow version is created WITHOUT flow translations at all.

    This would be fine, if gearset would allow us to reliably deploy the flow WITH flow translations, even if the flow translations had "no changes". (Gearset does not allow us to deploy items with no change, and sometimes doesn't even show them in the…

  2. 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.

  3. Delegate Access by Comparison

    Provide an additional delegate access option: be able to grant this at a comparison level to a user vs at the org level (situation is predominately experienced for Production comparisons/deployments). Granting access at an org level gives too much access (CI jobs, etc) for some users so it would be ideal to have a narrower scope.

  4. Show "All" Different Items

    Instead of a tab showing 'All Items', even items that are the same, maybe show a tab of All Different Items, which would show New, Deleted, and Changed in a single view without having to sift through the 'All Items' for these.

  5. Allow users set their own default tab view when viewing the comparison between orgs

    The recent change (March '22) to change the default tab when viewing a comparison from Changed Items to 'All Items' makes it more difficult to quickly see changes, because maybe there aren't any. The All Items list would also be extremely long if the org is particularly complex.
    As such, I propose that you give users the ability to select their own default tab when the comparison page loads, so we can choose to always view 'New' or 'Changed' items.

  6. Add option to load missing dependeces only.

    Example:
    When I already selected metadata filter with many items, downloaded metadata, compared, checked, and clicked deploy then I am getting an error that some dependency is missing but it is metadata type that wasn't selected previously.

    Currently:
    I need to click refresh comparison select additional metadata types and reload all metadata from both sandboxes. It is very time and resource consuming with big packages.

    As a solution:
    I want to have the possibility to click a button and select on the metadata list only those that I want to add to the current package and only those should be…

  7. Field Dependencies for Reports

    When deprecating a field and replacing it with a new one, we need to be able to see where they are used in all reports, including private folders, which the "Where is this used?" feature does not detail.

  8. Support Email Template Folder metadata migration

    Metadata API for EmailTemplateFolder does not accept wildcards so you have to know the name of the folder to be able to pull it down and migrate it. Currently (as of 2-16) the Gearset product cannot pull these.

    Suggest that they add functionality to make a SOQL call to get all the folder names, at which point they should be able to pull them. Allowing for compare and deployment.

  9. Ignore Business Owner changes between Sandboxes

    This was marked as "Completed" in https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/39507649-resolve-data-owner-user-metadata-from-difference

    But really the issue remains.

    When "Business owner" is populated in a field, it will show as "different" since the XML is showing username, which is different between sandboxes.

    This make trying to do comparisons to find differences very challenging.

  10. comparison between 3 or more ORGs

    i would like to see in a future update about comparing 3 or more Orgs to possibly fine tune checks between production, and multiple sandboxes to make sure everything looks as needed to verify no sandboxes are overlooked for refreshes if needed.

  11. Add Comparison Column for "Environment"

    Add a column for "Environment" which signifies which environment the change took place. For instance, this would tell you whether the changes took place in Production Only, Sandbox Only, or both.

    Then, I could filter by Sandbox Only and both to see only the changes I made recently in the sandbox that I need to push to Production. Right now, I have to sift through the many little changes to items that occurred in Production.

  12. Filter Column Sub-Levels

    If I filter a column, it does not apply those filters if I open the sub-levels of an item such as "Depends on" or "Used by". For instance, if I filter OUT under the "Difference Type" column "No Difference," when I search through those sub-levels, it should not show me items that are "No difference."

  13. Add a 'flag' to ignore XML 'utf' versus 'UTF' in XML header.

    I believe there exists a mismatch with the XML header reference to UTF in the Gearset library to what is used in SFDX.

  14. 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.

  15. Offer option to auto-limit items in clone comparison

    When a deployment is completed, you have an option to clone that package. For many of my deployments, I want to push a package to source control, and then on to production. The second comparison could be limited to just the items in the cloned package. Would be great to have an option to limit second comparison to only the meta-data items in the clone. Would allow subsequent comparisons to run much more quickly, if the user is confident that the package has everything needed for that specific deployment.

  16. Option to ignore package namespaces differences in Apex classes

    Our Apex Classes reference multiple managed packages that are updated automatically in our sandbox/production environments. This causes many classes to get picked up unnecessarily in our comparisons/CI deployments between source control (where the managed packages are not committed) and org.

    Unlike https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/43917792-add-an-option-to-ignore-package-version-difference this is specifically for different package namespaces between the source and target.

    In this example the source has one namespace and the target has 2 package namespaces.

    It would be very useful to be able to choose to ignore all package differences in comparisons and CI jobs as a team-wide setting.

  17. 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.

  18. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
