  2. Compare org monitoring from an arbitrary date to the current state of the org

    In Monitor ORG's tab, we have a daily set of cached metadata that can be used to troubleshoot issues in an ORG. This is great that we have this data. What would be even better (if there is not a way to do it currently), is if we could take the metadata cache from the monitoring job, "x" days ago, and compare it to the current state of an ORG.

    Maybe an ideal way to achieve this would be to select a cached version in the Compare Organizations screen. Alternatively, a button can be added in the Monitoring Job history…

  3. Clarify installation of managed packages and allow opt-out

    It appears that if there are dependencies in the deployment that require a Managed Package to be installed/updated, that package is automatically installed/updated before the deployment takes place.

    This is great, but it needs more clarity and control for the user.

    It would be nice to know if Managed Packages are going to be installed as the result of a deployment, and if so, opt-in or opt-out of that process. It would be great if opting-out also displayed the related metadata with the dependency so those could be excluded as well.

    This may also avert some errors where metadata needs…

  4. Display org authorisation errors

    When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

    Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:

    1. The app is blocked (OAUTHAPPBLOCKED)
    2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen
    3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

    Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

  5. Filtering by user across the app

    Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

  6. A count of differences could be grouped by type

    If the count of differences could be grouped by type/color that would be helpful.
    Ex: 20 differences: 5 red, 7 green, 8 yellow. It gives a better sense of how drastic the differences between Source and Target are at first glance.

  7. When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. Highlight in a different color

    From what I can determine you are categorizing the differences as follows:
    Code in Source, not in Target – Highlighted in Green
    Code in Target not in Source – Highlighted in Red
    Difference between code in Source and Target – Highlighted in Yellow

    When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. It would be nice if that was highlighted in a different color than yellow (perhaps grey). It would speed up the review of the code knowing a certain color was only a formatting difference.

  8. Manage Orgs Re-authorization returns you to a default sorted list.

    I refreshed a sandbox. I need to re-auth my orgs. I go to Manage Orgs, and sort by my friendly name. I click re-auth, and OAuth is successful and the app tells me I did a good job. But the page it returns me to is using a different sort then I left the page with. ie, it sorts the list by username again. Just extra button clicking I'd like to get rid of if possible. I have to re-auth orgs all the time.

  9. Include both dates on comparison export

    The sheet exported from a comparison currently includes only one date column. It is unclear which org this refers to. It would be great if it included two columns (one per org) so that one didn't have to individually look up the item to determine which version is newer.

  10. Cancel deployment in progress

    In Salesforce, you can cancel a deployment in progress: Maybe because a test has failed already and you don't want to bother running the rest, or because you forgot some things.

    Can we have a cancel button while a deployment is in progress in Gearset? The metadata api seems to support it:

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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'

  14. 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?

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Ability to pause subscriptions for inactive users
