  1. Allow users to select custom fields even if the object does not exist in the target

    Would be great if GS allowed to select custom fields when doing a comparison even if the object does not exist in the target. If I am pushing changes to a repository I might want to only include the fields I created/modified and not the whole object.

  2. Precision Deployments (available for Layouts) for all the meta data

    Precision Deployments for Layout is a great improvement, it would be great to have the same feature for other meta data, particularely for : Fields picklists, global value sets, List Views, Reports, Profiles, Permission Sets and why not Lightning Pages, now that the Dynamic Form is available for Acc, Contacts & Opp

  3. Cleanup Layout Assignments

    When you rename a Layout, the previous Layout Assignment won't be cleaned up on the Profile.
    This should be cleaned by the Repo dependency cleaner.

  4. Multiple metadata comparison filter selection

    Having multiple comparison filters to target specific metadata is handy but sometimes you need some additional components for a deployment (e.g Flow & Custom Fields).

    The ability to select more than one metadata comparison filter would be a great help and would save on the number of custom filters created and shared.

  5. Make Custom Filters a Top-Level Menu Item

    Filters are arguably the best part of gearset, especially with the support for RegEx. It is kind of a bummer that they are tucked away in a modal that can only be reached by clicking into a dropdown. Ideally you could just go to Hamburger > Metadata Deployments > Custom Filters and be routed to a dedicated page.

  6. allow selecting of specific picklist values when deploying changes to picklist fields

    Essentially would like to be able to cherry pick the values for a picklist value that is being deployed from a lower sandbox. Basically what you did with Precision Layout deployment for page layouts. There are times when we do not want to deploy all of the new/different values for a picklist field.

  7. Add issues from the problem analyzer to the comparison list

    When I find issues in the problem analyzer, if I accept them, they only add the things that I have selected, but I can't add any related elements without going back to the comparison.

    For example, if I miss a custom field in the comparison, but the problem analyzer flags it, I don't have any way to add the permissions for that field.

    Instead, I have to go back to the comparison and add that missed field and then it's related features (this is a big problem if the analyzer flags a number of issues).

    Having a button in the…

  8. Ability to Filter Out Namespaced Metadata

    I figured the best way to write this out was in the form of some sub-par user stories.

    As a Salesforce Admin, I need the ability to do a comparison of two orgs/repos and have it show only non-namespaced metadata so that I can easily distinguish between things I own and manage vs what are from managed packages.

    As a salesforce Admin, I want to be able to indicate that I want to hide all namespaced metadata while still being able to show custom fields I create on a namespaced object so that I can quickly deploy new custom fields.

  9. Allow for Scheduled Comparisons

    Like Monitoring Jobs, allow users to choose a source, target, and metadata filter, and schedule when a comparison runs.

    The primary goal of this would be time savings. To have that data already retrieved and cached so you can go in, make your selections, and move toward deployment more quickly. Possible applications include recurring deployments, planning out your workday, etc. This addition would be for non-Integration users.

  11. Profile Comparison within Same Org

    It would be useful to be able to compare profiles within the Same Org to allow for improved Security analysis and deployment.

    Use Case: Developer added new functionality in Sandbox and applied it to only a few of the profiles that were specific to that story. Now there is a new to expose that functionality to more users, but need an easy way of knowing which profiles are missing the needed functionality without going through each individually.

  12. Saved Comparisons should be visible to team members

    I have a team that has access to Gearset but unfortunately they cannot view the Saved Comparisons I've created. To reduce unnecessary time spent on creating and maintaining Saved Comparisons, it would be greatly appreciated if the Saved Comparisons could be shared with the team and possibly allow the owner to delegate access to the Saved Comparisons.

  13. Inline editing of metadata

    https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/38358922-inline-editing-of-metadata

    The idea above was "closed" due to Environment Variables.

    That feature is too fiddley for our use case as the change that needs to be performed is not consistent. Furthermore, that feature does not help with handling merges.

    Gearset has some merging capabilities, but it only allows to select one file or another, instead of merging changes from both files.

    I'm aware it is possible to perform merges from source control, though it would be easier to train our team if they did not have to learn another technology. Furthermore, it leaves the process to more faults as the…

  14. Allow Record type additions and removals to be selectable

  15. Compare Active Version of flows not the newest Flow

    When comparing flows please compare the active version of flows, not the newest version. This would align with how change sets handle flow.
    Example:
    Version 2 and 3 exist in source. Version 2 is active and version 3 is draft. I want to deploy Version 2 that is active not the inactive flow.

  16. Make "Hide Reodering" global switch

    Please add a feature to have globally selected "Hide Reordering" and also hide those files that have no changes after reordering from Changed Items?

    Clicking that on every file to see that there are no real differences is time consuming and slow down the comparison process.

    Scenario:
    1. I am comparing two sandboxes develop with my private sandbox to align with changes made on develop.
    2. I have comparison with many Global Value Sets, Custom fields which are Picklists, flows etc.
    3. Most of them are not changed but are listed as changes. I need to click on each metadata…

  17. Filter on UNselected items when choosing metadata to compare

    When selecting metadata to compare, there is a picklist that says "Filters" and has an option for "Selected Only." Please add a second option for "Unselected Only" so I can quickly verify that I haven't left anything out without my eyes being distracted by checkboxes and items I know I already selected.

  18. dynamic search function after comparison

    dynamic search function

    it would be helpful after the comparison to look for multiple components at the same time and not each one individually. for the release we get a list of components example from the developer:

    CustomerAddress
    Customer
    Namec
    Customer_Tel
    c
    ...

    I want to include the entire list in one search, and I want gerset to search for each row individually. Example in SQL:

    SELECT * FROM table
    WHERE column1 LIKE '%customeraddress%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customer
    namec%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customer_tele
    c%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customertele_c%'
    ...

    this change would save us…

  19. Allow users set their own default tab view when viewing the comparison between orgs

    The recent change (March '22) to change the default tab when viewing a comparison from Changed Items to 'All Items' makes it more difficult to quickly see changes, because maybe there aren't any. The All Items list would also be extremely long if the org is particularly complex.
    As such, I propose that you give users the ability to select their own default tab when the comparison page loads, so we can choose to always view 'New' or 'Changed' items.

  20. Add a 'flag' to ignore XML 'utf' versus 'UTF' in XML header.

    I believe there exists a mismatch with the XML header reference to UTF in the Gearset library to what is used in SFDX.
