  1. Add an auto-save feature while building deployment packages

    As Gearset is run through a web browser, if the browser happens to freeze while a package is being built, you don't have the opportunity to save it as a Draft Deployment. An auto-save feature would allow someone to pick up where they left off, or when the last auto-save was done, without having to start from scratch.

    • Allow multiple ownership in Gearset

      Currently only the creator (owner) of Schedule Test, Monitor Orgs and Manage Orgs can edit these activities. It would be helpful if we could designate more than 1 Owner for these activities. Similar to granting access to the various orgs (Comparison, Validation& Deployment) it makes sense to also include an Owner access as well.

      If this is not possible, having a transfer ownership button would be helpful for each activity.

      Thanks!

      • When exporting from the comparision reports page, the currently selected items should show in the exportt

        Today when you are on a comparison results screen there is an export button that will export the entire list of comparison results to a csv. However the current export does not include a column indicating items that have been selected for the current deployment. Having this column would help in reviewing the list of data outside of gearset.

        • Refresh Comparison should have an option: "Selected Files only"

          A common use case is:
          1. Compare default(66) source and target
          2. Select some files
          3. Deploy
          4. Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)
          5. Fix file(s) in underlying org/source branch.
          6. "Back to results" Optionally mark additional files as selected.
          7. "Refresh Comparison"

          This takes too long, you just want the selected files to compare (and really, just get on with deploying). You don't want to wait for both source and target metadata to load and compare. You don't want to uncheck/check specific metadata components that represent your selected files. You just want a…

          • Add webhooks for VSTS (like BitBucket and GitHub)

            You offer webhooks for BitBucket and GitHub source control branches (so you can build on-demand if the repository is updated). We use VSTS Git at our organization and this functionality would be really useful for us!

            VSTS offers webhook functionality-- see here: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/marketplace/integrate/service-hooks/services/webhooks

            Please give it a chance!

            • Create a VSTS Build Task for Gearset

              VSTS offers the ability to create build definitions to validate/deploy your code, but Gearset customers don't have much options natively in VSTS to trigger a Gearset deployment. We can scan a code repository for changes every 4 hours in order to do a CI deployment-- but that's about it.

              VSTS offers the ability for vendors to create "Build Tasks" for their applications, where you can initiate a VSTS build and get results. This is basically a controlled version of API access to the tool.

              More information:
              VSTS Marketplace - https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/vsts
              VSTS "Add a Build Task" - https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/integrate/extensions/develop/add-build-task

              It would be…

                • Test job triggered by CI job

                  Test jobs are only configured on time basis. When developer commit some changes and it will be deployed, but tests will be done on a time basis in 2 hours for example, so he should wait to know weather tests are passed or not. Or ask the release manager to run tests manually. So, this feature is must have improvement.

                  • Reporting by user

                    It would be great if there was a way to report out by user on the total number of Deployments, Comparisons, Validated packages. I see you have it on the portal, but I am not able to extract the data to analyze it.

                    • Support grouping of Manage Orgs page

                      Support the ability to group org credentials on the Manage Orgs page by a new Group Name attribute. In managing multiple clients with dozens of PRD and Sandbox orgs it would be extremely helpful to be able to group and filter related credentials by client. However, to expand this feature to support multiple use cases, providing a new Group Name attribute (text) which could contain any value would be fantastic!

                      Thanks for your consideration,
                      Mike

                        • Include custom metadata type (__mdt) listviews

                          Not sure this is a bug or a limitation in the V40.0 SFDC Metadata API but it would appear that Custom Metadata Type (__mdt) listviews are not included in the Comparison (default 66). List Views on other Sobjects are included. Hence they can't be deployed

                          • UI Enhancement: Drag modal windows to reveal background

                                • Allow a deployment team to update the same draft deployment at the same time or warn the end user of a draft in use by another user

                                  When a dev team work on a shared deployment, it would be nice to work on the same deployment draft, at the same time. At a bare minimum, it would be good to be warned that someone is updating the draft at the same time as you.

                                      • Filter standard vs custom objects

                                        We sell a managed package and will never include standard objects in a comparison, and absolutely not in source control. When I'm running a compare against source control to check for changes, it will show all of the standard objects as "custom objects" which is not correct. I should have a way to filter out standard objects from the comparison.

                                        • Individual File Refresh

                                          Often times I find myself updating 1 or two files since a prior comparison. Rather than refreshing the entire thing which can take a while, it would be nice if I could specify which ones to refresh.

                                          I'm aware that I can set which metadata types to compare, but even in large orgs, the 4 or 5 common ones can still take quite awhile from a full refresh.

                                          Thanks!
