  1. Chatter posting to

    I think it would be useful if Gearset had the capability to make a chatter post to a specific group or @mention someone.

  2. Initiate comparison from package.xml

    I'd like to be able to drop a package.xml file on the New comparison screen. Doing that will have two effects.

    First off, it will drive the selection of which metadata types to include in the comparison.

    Secondly, it will automatically select the components listed in the package.xml on the comparison results page.

    This provides a really good way to expediting a deployment, since package.xml are used pretty universally by both IDEs and standard deployment tools (including packages).It also helps me take advantage of the intelligence of automatic dependency and all of the other goodies that Gearset has. Basically I…

  3. Provide a way to init a sandbox

    It would be nice if there was a quick way of init'ing a new sandbox that matches either what was in source control or an existing sandbox.

    Currently, I need to run a comparison between the existing source and the new sandbox and then I can try the deploy, but it would be nice if the compare step was not needed and I could simply say 'overwrite what is in the sandbox with what is in the specified source'

  4. User Account Specific Validation Errors

    When deploying objects such as reports to a Target ORG, sometimes the reports are shared with a user in the source ORG. If the user does not exist in the Target ORG, the validation throws an error. Would it be feasible to add objects, such as reports, to the Warnings / Fixes screen so we can easily select how to handle user specific dependencies? Maybe we can chose to enter a new username or simply remove the shared with permission on the object?

  5. Deploying Profiles - Create, Update, Delete

    I have noticed that in some scenarios, user profiles cannot be created, deleted or updated. In addition, some pieces such as user license cannot be updated due to the Salesforce architecture. To create a new profile with a specific license, we would have to clone an existing profile that has the correct license and then update the permissions accordingly. When deleting a profile, first we need to ensure that the profile is not associated with a user (it doesn't matter whether the user is active or inactive) and then the profile can be deleted. When updating a profile, based on…

  6. Modify the email address for manual deployment notifications

    Being able to modify the default email address for deployment notifications, as for automated jobs, would help keep the others in my team notified of any manual deployments we run.

  7. Add a `Weekly` cadence to the test runner

    I need to run my own tests (ie no namespace) daily as those should never fail and if they do I need to know

    For namespace tests, I just need to run them weekly, primarily to reset the "invalid" flag on apex classes that can be tripped by trivial changes. I know some will fail as we have some huge apps installed and my understanding is that it's normal for dome of those managed tests to fail.

    So I would only want to run them weekly to reduce the noise from the daily failure email. Just run those on Saturday.

  8. Provide a way to get the debug logs of failing tests

    Sometimes my tests are failing when they run during the automated run at night, but, when I log in and run the tests manually, they pass. I can see the failure stack trace, but I was wondering if there is any way to keep/view the debug logs from the failed tests so I can try to understand why they fail at night, but work during the day?

  9. Dependency Engine enhancement for Sharing Rules

    Dependencies with sharing rules. Roles/Groups/Fields referenced in sharing rules may be helpful to add as "dependent" on as if they are not in the destination org you cannot deploy.

  10. Allow deployment of Sharing Rules by Rule not by Object

    In change sets we can pick individual sharing rules to push (specific ones on an object). However through gearset we can only push the whole object.

  11. Ability to pause subscriptions for inactive users

    Manage users on "My Team", so we can activate/deactivate users and then save on licences that are not used until reassigned.

  12. Scroll to top of category, when switch between All Items, Changed Items etc

    Just a user preference item – when you switch tabs (ex: New Objects to Deleted Objects), it doesn’t place you at the top of the window.

    So if I scroll down through all the New Objects and then switch tabs to the Deleted Objects, it just places me in the same relative location as I was in the New Objects tab.

    It would be nice to have it reset to the top of each window when I switch tabs.

  13. Here's the best solution: Be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items

    Would like to be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items to make then function correctly (permissions, layouts, field level security, etc..)

    Then we could go back and migrate all the process automation stuff - workflow rules, flows, trigger, etc..

    It always starts with the data schema first. We need a quick way to see what is different between two orgs and get that synced first

  14. Unselect all standard profiles & related permission

    Often you want to deploy Admin profile and (x) custom profiles. Compare and deploy picks up hundreds of entries for standard profiles which are surplus to requirements. A single click way would be veryuseful.

  15. Specified Test Level Suggestion

    Hello,

    It would be very nice to be able to have a test classes suggestion when doing a deployment with "specified test level". The suggestion will ensure the package elements will be covered at least by 75% and so speed up the deployment.

  16. allow multiple slack webhooks per scheduled monitor or test run.

    I have multiple slack teams, I'd like the ability to hook up a monitor org, or a test run to send to multiple slack webhook urls.

    Not super important, and I suppose I could get around it by scheduling a duplicate, but that just felt wasteful of everyone's API's. :)

  17. When migrating ReportFolders, either remove running user or let me map users between Sandboxes/environments

    When migrating ReportFolders, either remove running user or let me map users between Sandboxes/environments

    The SharedTo User doesn't exist in the target org causing my deployment to fail.

  19. Differentiate XML and Code differences in the comparison

    I would find it very useful if the comparison result highlighted if the difference was in the XML or the Code (or both) for each item. This would especially save time when there are a lot of differences.

  20. Specify tests to run on the test monitoring jobs

    Some of my orgs have many tests, and I don't always want to run all of them on a daily basis. Being able to specify which tests are run daily would be great.
