  1. Ability to move existing field to be under another section on layout

    If I have multiple sections on my layout.
    I have a specific field under one layout section, but now I changed the layout so the field no is moved to another section.
    Now I can't do that because the compare and deploy forces me to override the existing section where the field is under.
    My intention is to move the field place to be under another section and not delete the other layout section

  2. Add exclusion filters for Pipelines

    Currently, the metadata filters in pipeline (CI) jobs are either all of a type of metadata, or a defined subset. There is no option to include all, except for a couple of objects, which is oftentimes required.
    Please consider adding a negative (exclusion) filter for CI jobs, in addition to the existing positive (inclusion) filters.

  3. Include DataWeaveResource in comparisons and deployments

    DataWeaveResource has been around for a few releases and is deployable via the Metadata API, but is not supported by Gearset yet. Please include this.

  4. Persist Selection to Include/Exclude Managed Packages in Compare 2.0

    When using the new compare, the default is to exclude managed packages. However, we'd like to always include them, so it would be nice to persist the selection from one compare to the next.

  6. Comparison of draft deployments

    Two teams who are supposed to be working on different parts of the sandbox org have created two draft deployments. I would like to compare these draft deployments to see if there is any overlap of selected items.

  7. Multiple sort columns for comparison results

    It would be helpful to be able to sort comparison results on multiple columns (e.g. first by Metadata type, then by Name). Currently it seems that the results can only be sorted by one column at a time.

  8. Add a date filtering mechanism on comparisons

    . Currently we can select individual dates on the dropdown list or select from a select few "Last X days". Would be a great option to be able to set something like "See changes from X to Y" or "Select since X", especially useful given we have the dropdown selection on a per minute step, so the list gets very large, very quikcly.

    For compliance checking, tracking who changes what when, periods of criticality (especially around new features coming in) or just for retrospectives.

  9. exclude specific JSON keys when comparing Vlocity/Omnistudio metadata

    We are seeing Omniscripts showing as different on certain JSON keys. These keys always change and should be excluded from your comparison.
    The impact of this is Omniscript deployments require the LWCs to be compiled and if we deploy Omniscripts unintentionally, their LWCs are not recompiled and functionality breaks for the users.

  10. Deploy Now and Validate Package Buttons

    Presently, the Deploy Now and Validate Package buttons are positioned adjacent to each other. Occasionally, there is a risk of unintentionally selecting the Deploy Now button before the package has been validated. This can result in potential issues arising. To address this, I recommend the following actions:

    1. Enable the Deploy Now button only after the Validate Package process is successfully completed.
    2. Consider repositioning the buttons within the User Interface if both buttons share the same screen.
    3. Alternatively, place the Deploy Now button after the Validate Package screen in the sequence.

    Thanks.

  11. Allow download of XML files from the comparisons page

    In some instances, we have to use the Metadata API to download XML files for analysis. However, the Metadata API is a pain to use. Even Salesforce recognizes this and suggests using a migration tool like Gearset to extract these: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.246.0.api_meta.meta/api_meta/file_based.htm

    Since Gearset retrieves these files during comparison, it would be great if there was an option to download them to a zip file directly.

    Note: There is already a "Download Package" feature on the deployment page. However, we obviously can't add items to this page if there is no change between the orgs. So, if a similar feature were…

  12. distinguish between components of feature branch and what is syncing to main

    As a user of gearset deploying pull requests to multiple environments
    I want to be able to identify actual components of the feature branch vs. what is included for syncing to main/main branch for the org being deployed to
    So that there isn't the confusion of understanding what new/changes items are showing up in the commit information

  13. Please add Namespace/Package name as a column in the comparison view

    Currently , if I pull down metadata from managed packages (e.g. with the intention of committing the custom fields we've added to managed objects or committing the permissions we've updated) this means I get all the metadata in the comparison screen, with no way of filtering out the managed packages. An example of where this is a problem/cluttering the UI is Triggers/Classes - the contents of these is always hidden, so ideally i'd like to have a column to filter them out

  14. Integrate with Salesforce's Setup Audit Trail for Metadata Detection

    Many metadata types are referenced in Salesforce's Setup Audit Trail. An alternate way to detect changes to include could be querying Setup Audit Trail with a Start / End Date instead of asking user to select the necessary components.

  15. Remove Site.com from the Default Experience Cloud Comparison filter

    The Default Experience Cloud Comparison filter include the Site.com component. This component seems to cause problems with Experience Bundle deployments. I recommend this should be removed from the Default filter.

  16. Provide a list of Frequently Used Metadata Types for easy filtering

    I often don't know which metadata types I need to include in a comparison so I don't miss anything so I often use Compare All (takes forever!). I'd like to have Gearset suggest filters based on past deployments so I can confidently compare without having to wait a long time.

  17. Update the layout comparison view of Page layouts to reflect custom button/button changes on related lists. Currently XML view only

    The layout view does not show custom buttons added to related list/other button changes. This is visible in XML view, the layout view is slightly confusing as a result - The "Select all" tick at the top is present, but no other tick boxes, making it unclear what you are selecting unless you use XML view

  18. Date to date filter

    A date to date filter so as to ignore anything outside of that time window. Even if it could just be all the changes for one year, that would help.

  19. 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.

  20. When cloning a deployment, also clone the test settings

    When I'm cloning a deployment, if in the original one I have selected specific test classes, by default have those selected again in the clone.

    Often you either need to repeat a deployment, or you'll deploy several times between instances, with the same tests.
