  3. Include both dates on comparison export

    The sheet exported from a comparison currently includes only one date column. It is unclear which org this refers to. It would be great if it included two columns (one per org) so that one didn't have to individually look up the item to determine which version is newer.

  4. Configure the "Saved Comparison Pair" to always use a specific Comparison Filter

    When managing multiple orgs, and running comparisons, the Saved Comparison Pair saves a lot of time. However, sometimes we need to use different Comparison Filters, based on which environments we are comparing.

    Instead of first choosing the Comparison Pair, then manually selecting the Comparison Filter to use, it would be great to be able to (optionally) configure the Comparison Pair to use a specified Comparison Filter.

    Example Use Case:

    When committing work from our Dev org to BitBucket, we exclude Apex Classes & Triggers, and mainly commit declarative functionality (Apex code is committed separately from our dev team). All development…

  5. Deploy Managed Custom Filters Globally

    When we associate a custom filter with a particular CI job, and then make changes to the filter, give the user the option to push those changes to all jobs (list them out) that use that named filter.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Last Modified in Metadata Filter

    It would be great if I could set a "last modified" filter when setting which metadata to pull. Rather than go to Apex Classes, wait for the list to refresh, then cherry-pick them, it would be great to simply compare Apex classes modified today, or in the last 30 days, or in the last hour, etc.

  12. Ability to choose whether or not to respect the forceignore file

    Would like a checkbox on the comparison screen that allows me to choose whether or not the comparison will respect the contents of the forceignore file. (Similar to the checkbox allowing you to choose whether or not the comparison should use the package.xml file).

    Our usage of Gearset does not align with our usage of the forceignore file for automated deployments. In fact, we often use Gearset to manually compare and/or deploy items that we specifically ignore for automated deployments.

    Summary of problem this new feature has introduced:
    We use gearset for org -> git deployments, and for git ->…

  13. 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…

  14. Allow Scheduling of Comparison and Export Results via Email

    Our use case is to schedule the comparison of two sources (Salesforce orgs) which are both "dev" environments, on a daily basis, yet receive the comparison results as an email attachment. The format of the export file within the comparison itself is what we'd need. This would save time & clicks by not having to log into the app and dig into the comparison job to manually extract the csv file.

  16. Allow deployments across managed package versions

    Gearset does not allow comparisons or deployments of custom metadata on managed packages if the versions are different. We got ourselves in a situation where a package in the sandbox was a higher beta version that we couldn't upgrade to. This required us to do all the field deployments via changsets.

    Adding a warning for deployments across managed package versions would be ideal as most changes one would deploy wouldn't necessarily cause any issues.

  17. 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…

  18. Search for components within Profile should show results regardless of expansion of specific profiles

    Use case on Difference Viewer:

    search on `profilerecordtypevisibility' (or use metadata filter and check Profile: Record Type Visibility)

    Results
    Unless the difference viewer already has the Profile(s) expanded for their components, you get no results

    Desired behavior -- Search on components within Profile should show results; even if search takes longer

  19. Display "Metadata comparison (custom) filter" used on "Comparison in progress" -screen

    Hi! I just started to evaluate Gearset. Looking good. When I was staring at "Comparison in progress"-screen this came to my mind:

    Sometimes it takes a bit longer than expected and I start to think: "OMG - What custom filter I used? - Probably I'm comparing everything - That's why it takes so long - Maybe I should cancel this job?".

    It would be more reassuring if the Metadata comparison (custom) filter being used was also shown on that "Comparison in progress" screen.

  20. Improve comparison performance

    If there is one thing that is :-( about Gearset is that for moderate size orgs (a few thousand objects), the default 64 comparison takes too long.

    You want to initiate a deployment from source to target and, for whatever reason, you want to make sure you didn't miss anything that needs to be deployed

    So, to be safe, you initiate the 64 default comparison.

    And you wait (downloading, comparison). This can take several minutes. You go on to other tasks and your zeal to get the deployment done went off onto other things as the comparison time is too…
