  1. Mass deletion of data from backup

    We want to know how to automate the deletion in backup system.

    Common use case is deletion of customer data due to legal compliance.

  2. Apply masking of certain data across backups GDPR compliance

    It would be great if records that were marked with certain GDPR attributes, possibly 'GDPR Removal = TRUE' that the backups could apply arbitrary data masking across all historical backups for email and phone number fields

  3. Provide Salesforce error message for Backup Failed Jobs

    For Data Backup Jobs that fail it would be beneficial for the corresponding email to contain the Salesforce error message that caused the error.

    Or at the very least provide the error in the user interface of the failed Data Backup Job on Gearset site.

  4. Allow bulk export of selected objects in selected historical data backups

    It would be great to export all, or a selected timeframe, of data backups for a job. I understand this would be a large volume of data so selecting by object would be great.

    For example, if there is a data backup for all objects that runs daily, I'd like to select the Account object and select a backup timeframe of 1/1/2020 - 12/31/2020 to export a .zip folder of 365 Account.csv files.

  5. Control in which country data backups are stored or alternatively export backups automatically..

    We require the ability to control where our data is stored. At the moment we need our Swiss backup data to be stored on Swiss servers. If this isn't possible it would be great if we can automatically export data via an API endpoint to our Swiss server.

  6. Restore/export certain fields on objects

    We (the user) would like to be able to restore data, but only select certain fields to be restored.

    Usecase:
    A business user triggers some automation that modifies a field or specific fields on a large number of records that should not have been modified. In the meantime, other fields may have been modified that were correctly modified. We would want to restore a set of records from a specific backup, but only the specific fields that should not have been modified.

  7. export deleted data records in CSV format

    We can currently view deleted/removed data records in XML format as a list, but we can't export them into a CSV. This is necessary people who don't have access to Gearset and would be very helpful for users who have difficulty understanding XML.

  8. Allow invited people to replicate data and metadata from Backup job

    Allow the ability to replicate data and metadata for persons with full permissions to a backup job even if they did not create the backup job

    With several administrators for a Salesforce organization, the objective with a backup is that in case of an emergency or error it can be fixed within a short period of time to avoid downtime. The backup job allows us to have a copy of our data, but it would also be great if we could have a copy of the person who is responsible for the backup. With just one person being able to…

  10. Pulling object dependencies during data backup

    A cool feature would be the ability for Data backup to have the ability to select object dependencies when you select a particular object for instances where you want to backup a subset of data and not just your entire org
