Ability to activate / deactivate Flows / Processes as part of the meta data and/or data deployment process
It should be possible to have gearset to deactivate flows and/or processes based on a selection. And to roll-back afterwards. Similar to what has been created here: https://sfswitch.herokuapp.com/
Hi, thank you for voting on this UserVoice.
Flows can now be deactivated in Gearset alongside validation rules and triggers before data deployments.
Click the View and disable rules... button in the bottom-right of the pre-deployment summary page (next to DEPLOY DATA) to prepare a special metadata comparison.
To deactivate a flow, simply select & deploy its corresponding flow definition.

The Salesforce Import Wizard has an option to not trigger any automation during data jobs. It would be fantastic if Gearset provided such an option.
This would include:
- Process builders
I know this feature already exists for validation rules and triggers.
Doing this manually whilst re-seeding new\refreshed sandboxes is an extra time consuming step that we'd like to avoid

With the deprecation of Worfklow Rules, I'd love to have the disable Rules include the active Flow Definitions
This is quite crucial because we have many processes and loading data causes the apex limits to be reached which meas this does not work unless all flows are deactivated first. Also any of these processes would have already triggered on the source data in production.

Great idea, highly needed!
