  1. Added an 'Or' function to the Filter Options

    Right now there is only an 'And' filter when configuring Fields on the same object. It would make this much more powerful of a tool if we were able to chose between 'And' & 'Or'.

  2. Add a batch size option directly on Data Deployment and Data Templates

    Currently we can specify the batch size for bulk data loads on Account level.

    With this kind of setup we can't have two pararell jobs running on different batch sizes and we also need to memorize what batch size is required for each of my Data Templates.

    It would be nice if we could do that directly on Data Deployment job and even save such setting in a Data Template.

  3. Spacing in formulas

    This was marked as completed in https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/34690018-preserve-spacing-in-formulas but seems to be broken again. Formulas or criteria in WF are deployed without carriage returns, which makes formulas very messy to work with.

  4. Deploying to an org based on tags

    It would be a useful feature to initiate a deployment when a Github tag is created.

  5. Select the fields to deploy during a data deployment

    Hi we use the data deployment feature is it possible to only select some fields to deploy data from one org to another and not always all the fields on an object.

  6. Allow custom manipulations to data during a data deployment

    Export the selected data source in a CSV file before deploying, in order to allow custom manipulation. Then allow the import of that CSV to destination - functioning like a more sophisticated Data loader.

  7. Keep the same record owner between source and destination orgs.

    Alternatively, allow the change of record owner before importing data to destination org.

  8. Deploy Einstein Datasets from one org to the other

    Copying of Salesforce objects with relations is a great feature. But this does not support Einstein datasets to be copied from one org to the other. It is critical for teams to have Einstein dataset in the lower orgs for development and testing

  9. Functionality to Data Deploy Active Orders

    Salesforce doesn't support the creation or update or standard Order records with a Status Category of Active. This means Gearset is unable to data deploy any active orders. It would be very useful if there was an option for Gearset to temporarily set active orders to a draft status for the deployment or the Order Records and related Order Records, and then set the status back to Active for the final step.

  10. Select a set of data deployment templates and run them in order

    Ability to build sequence of data load (choose a list of data load templates and have to possibility to run them automatically in sequence). The sequence can be changed.

  11. While configuring a data deployment, allow save after selecting objects and fields

    There's no opportunity to save the data deployment settings after selecting objects and fields, and this can be quite time consuming, so if the job fails due to auth or other issues, right now, this requires the user to start over, and re-select objects and fields.

  13. Support Salesforce standard Country/State Picklist Mapping for Data Masking

    Right now, using the data masking feature for data deployments, the values for country and state are real values and random. There's no guarrantee that the country and state will be valid pairings.

    This causes issues for orgs that use the standard Country/State picklists from Salesforce.

    The goal would be that the masking feature would pull from the Saleforce default values and make sure that the state and country are valid pairings as opposed to randomizing both separately

  14. Allow Data Deployment to filter lookup fields on fetched data

    Currently, when doing a data deployment Gearset will let you know of all the referenced objects from the object you selected. What it doesn't do is the opposite of that - let you know all the objects that reference your object with a lookup.

    It'd be great if we could add a filter to utilize some data pulled in a fetch/query during data deployment.

    ex. field (TeamMember.ProjectLookup_c in {returned Project results in query in previous step of data deployment).

  15. Set fields to a specific value during a data deployment

    When deploying Data, it would be nice to be able to set field values. It could be just to null them or set a value. It could be part of the configuration or data masking.

  16. Deploy data from local repository.

    It would be very helpful if we could deploy data from a local repository. We have different namespaces for internal packages and it would make data migration significantly easier if we could do it from a local machine where we'd switch the namespaces.

  17. Preserve auto-number field values during a data deployment

    Staging environments typically exist with integrations with other systems that have references to auto-number fields
    Data deployment re-evaluates auto-number fields instead of keeping the values of the source.

    If data deployment jobs could automate the following it would probably work
    1. changing the type of the auto-number field to text in the target org
    2. potentially removing apex references to the field
    3. deploying the data
    4. rolling back metadata modifications in steps 1 and 2

  18. Ability to update value of Reference field for a data deployment

    "Select reference fields to deploy"

    Ability to edit the value for the target deployment data for the reference field instead of searching for the match on the Target.

    Ex. Loading Opportunities from a Source to a Target that contains 5 different record types, but when uploaded to the Target we specify the recordtypeid to one that matches a recordtypeid on the Target for the entire data load.

    Similar to how the Owner reference can ignore the Target's users and default to the running user of the data deployment.

  19. Support user record migration from production to sandbox or scratch orgs

    New users are often created in the production org that need to be monitored and brought back to sandboxes as well. It would be great if the data deployment tool could support moving user records from prod to sandboxes or scratch orgs.

  20. Allow record id as the first criteria for matching lookup fields

    When deploying data records from production to sandbox, the default matching criteria for the owner field will not typically work...

    Gearset currently matches on email and profile, but the email addresses for users get modified in sandboxes. So, no match is found for users other than the one who created the sandbox.

    It would be great if the first check was: does the user record id match. If not, use email + profile, if not, use the current user.
