  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!

      • UI Enhancement: Drag modal windows to reveal background

        UI Quality of Life recommendation: let me drag the modal windows so that I can see what classes are being deployed, which will let me quickly specify tests without having to go back to my code base to look.

            • 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!

                        • Option to validate / deploy only running test classes in deployment set

                          When deploying, there's a pain point when we want to specify tests to run. It would be nice to have an option to only run test classes that are included in the deployment. Automatically identifying which test classes are in the deployment package should be fairly straight forward:
                          `grep -ri @IsTest ./src/classes`

                          • create branch

                            It would be nice to be able to check Salesforce changes into a new branch in Github (or other git repos). This would provide admins an easy entry point for their changes into a git repo without having to learn the esoteric git command structure.

                            • Live chat button overlays action button

                              Not sure how you resolve this one without moving either button. Maybe do something similar to what is done in the Diff view (where the action buttons are displayed in a row below the content).

                              Another option would be to have the live chat in the header navigation to toggle the feature on / off?

                              Not sure...Just noticed that it gets in the way sometimes.

                              • Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

                                If you are deploying to PROD and
                                a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
                                b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

                                The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

                                This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

                                • download the zip package at an earlier stage before analysis has taken place

                                  Download the zip package at an earlier stage before the analysis has taken place.
                                  In big Orgs with multiple teams working the analysis page takes sometimes to load so it would be a great addition if we can download the zip package file and modify it.

                                  • View email templates that are part of a managed package folder in comparison

                                    Hey guys,

                                    I am not sure if this is an actual issue or not but I will ask the question to see if I am missing something :)

                                    When comparing email templates, the compare will return both email templates and folders. I have noticed that in my case, email templates that are part of a managed folder do not return. We can see the folder and sync the folder settings, but no templates. If we move the templates to a non-managed folder we can see the templates. Has anybody encountered anything similar?

                                    Thanks!

                                    Richard

                                    • Automatically revert PR in GitHub CI Jobs

                                      When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

                                      • Have a timer on the compare page to indicate how long the compare is taking

                                        Sometimes a compare can take us 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the org. I would like to see a running timer on this page of how long the compare is taking. I don't expect it to say how long is left, just how long it has taken so far. This will help to highlight if any abnormalities are happening, ie. if it's taking a very long time and is only at the Downloading phase for example.

                                        • Display which apex triggers have low code coverage if a deployment fails

                                          It would be great if Gearset can surface which Apex trigger has 0% code coverage when a deployment fails.
