  1. Search for components within Profile should show results regardless of expansion of specific profiles

    Use case on Difference Viewer:

    search on `profilerecordtypevisibility' (or use metadata filter and check Profile: Record Type Visibility)

    Results
    Unless the difference viewer already has the Profile(s) expanded for their components, you get no results

    Desired behavior -- Search on components within Profile should show results; even if search takes longer

  2. Allow XML package for org snapshot/daily monitoring

    Allow XML package for org snapshot/daily monitoring. This is to take the previous day's design to be downloaded in xml format that we can open in eclipse IDE.

  3. Difference Viewer custom object name: include suffix __c, __x, __mdt, __e, etc

    When you look in the Difference Viewer, it is not clear at all by inspection which line of Metadata Type "Custom Object" is a standard object, custom object, platform event, custom metadata type, historcial trending object, etc.

    For example, Custom object Foo__c displays simply in the Name column as Foo. This is a loss of information in the difference viewer, especially if one has similarly-named custom object metadata types such as:

    Fooc
    Foos
    e
    FooConfig__mdt

    these display as
    Foo
    Foos
    FooConfig

    The full Sobject Name gives the user hints as to perhaps other related components that need to be…

  4. would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences

    would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences... e.g. encryption. So if encryption is enabled in a Production Org but not in a Sandbox (not sure if Encryption is possible for SBs), you have a difference for every custom field <encrypted>true/false</encrypted> which is really irritating.

  5. Improve PermissionSet comparisons by providing an option to ignore fieldPermissions when their editable/readable are set to false

    Current Metadata Behavior:
    When a new object is added, objectPermissions are only added to a PermissionSet only if one of allowCreate, allowDelete, allowEdit, modifyAllRecords, viewAllRecords are set to true
    When a new field is added, the new fieldPermission is added to all PermissionSets by default (with editable and readable set to false).

    NB. PermissionSets are additive in behavior and can only open up access not revoke. Values of false have no meaning and are only noise.

    Current Gearset Comparison Behavior:
    Comparing PermissionSets show these new fieldPermssions as New Items even when default values for editable, readable are set to false.…

  6. Ability to manually hide/filter component differences by single flag

    When reviewing comparisons it would be extremely helpful to have the ability to manually 'hide' a component difference (e.g. a single flag to filter out, ignore, or even 'grey' a component differences) once you have a) reviewed the XML and b) determined you do not want to deploy or view that component in a saved draft. I.e. a third state that is not simply 'selected' or 'deselected'.

    Current filters by component type, name, et al. don't accommodate for wanting to hide a known component difference (e.g. like an Apex class still under development) so that you can only see remaining…

  8. When a Picklist Populates, Don't Default to the 1st Value, Default to Blank

    When I choose my destination, the system defaults the picklist to the first item on the list. Instead it should populate the list but don't pick a value.

    For example, when I choose destination = BitBucket, it then takes a moment to load available branches. It takes a little bit so I go on and start to configure the metadata types. Meanwhile, Gearset populates the list and sets the value to the 1st branch on the list, in my case, feature/helpdesk. It should leave the value blank and make me pick.

    This has resulted in me running long-running comparisons, and…

  9. Simple visualization showing Process Builder differences

    Assuming the high-vote count Idea for matching on latest version Process Builder flow between source and target (and not by version #) is implemented; make the visual comparison between source/target PB not solely XML.

    Process Builder in XML can't be deciphered by a human mind. Hence, a simple indented text-based visualization could be done to make it more readable

    1. Decision 1.1 Entry criteria 1.2 Immediate actions 1.2.1 action 1 details (XML here OK) 1.2.2 action 2 " " 1.3 Scheduled actions 1.3.1 scheduled action 1 (XML here OK) ...

    There's an implicit tree layout in the PB…

  10. Display "Metadata comparison (custom) filter" used on "Comparison in progress" -screen

    Hi! I just started to evaluate Gearset. Looking good. When I was staring at "Comparison in progress"-screen this came to my mind:

    Sometimes it takes a bit longer than expected and I start to think: "OMG - What custom filter I used? - Probably I'm comparing everything - That's why it takes so long - Maybe I should cancel this job?".

    It would be more reassuring if the Metadata comparison (custom) filter being used was also shown on that "Comparison in progress" screen.

  13. refresh comparison UX - echo the filter used in the original comparison

    When you click Refresh Comparison, the dialog does not echo anywhere the original filter name used in the comparison-being-refreshed. You just get a x/y filters being used.

    Always good to remind the user as to which filters were originally selected without having to scroll through the list

  14. Support aliases for metadata types in the search box

    So often, I type something in the search box for a metadata type based on the point-and-click force.com labels and the search comes up with nothing.

    I'd suggest an auto-substitute option so if one types in 'Email alert', it auto-prompts for the metadata API substitute: 'Workflow alert' Or, if one types in 'Support process', it auto-prompts to substitute 'Business Process'

  15. Improve comparison performance

    If there is one thing that is :-( about Gearset is that for moderate size orgs (a few thousand objects), the default 64 comparison takes too long.

    You want to initiate a deployment from source to target and, for whatever reason, you want to make sure you didn't miss anything that needs to be deployed

    So, to be safe, you initiate the 64 default comparison.

    And you wait (downloading, comparison). This can take several minutes. You go on to other tasks and your zeal to get the deployment done went off onto other things as the comparison time is too…

  16. 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…

  17. Save previously entered comparison filters

    I am currently using a standard regex filter each time I do a comparison. It has become quite lengthy such that I can't easily remember it. I have ended up saving it in a separate text file and have to open it, then copy and paste it into Gearset each time I do a comparison. Pretty cumbersome.

    It would be nice if the Filter... text box on the comparison results screen was a combo box that when clicked, dropped down a list of recently used filters. Each entry in the list should be removable (like with a little 'x' icon…

  18. Have a timer on the compare page to indicate how long the compare is taking

    Sometimes a compare can take us 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the org. I would like to see a running timer on this page of how long the compare is taking. I don't expect it to say how long is left, just how long it has taken so far. This will help to highlight if any abnormalities are happening, ie. if it's taking a very long time and is only at the Downloading phase for example.

  19. Provide the option to ignore whitespace differences in Apex

    It would be great to have more control over the diff process - particularly to be able to ignore whitespace changes.

    If I've made an actual function change to a class, and also auto-indented it, then it would be a lot easier to see the important change if I could hide the whitespace-only changes.

    Having the ability to suppress whitespace-only changes on the list of changed objects would be really useful, too.

  20. 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.
