Improve the UI around deployment objects dependent on objects not in the comparison
Deployment of certain types of objects requires that other objects on which they are dependent be included in the deployment. If the needed objects have not been included in the selected items and they are not part of the comparison, Gearset will display the following message:
Problem: Some itmes reference componnents that were not downloaded from either the source or the target.
Solution: Removing the elements that reference missing components from the affected items will make the deployment more likely to succeed.
Below this is displayed a table with a column of checkboxes at the left and three additional columns: "Element type", "Missing component", and "Affected item".
I think two changes to this page could make it more usable:
In addition to advising the user on how to exclude the objects from the deployment, the UI should advise the user on what needs to be done to include them - presumably changing the parameters of the comparison so that the needed additional objects are included.
The table should indicate not only the name but the type of the missing object.
