  1. test Monitoring overview - show "is running" + stats

    On the Test Monitoring Overview page; you should be able to see at a glance whether the test is running and how many methods have run vs total

    Reason this comes up is if you establish a Unit Test run for your developer sandbox org, then you can't run (some) tests from your IDE against the same org "ALREADYINPROCESS Test already enqueued"

    A quick glance at the Test Monitoring Overview would tell you if you need to wait 1 minute vs 20 - and guide your activities accordingly

  2. Be able to start immediately a JOB (CI/Unit Tests/Monitoring)

    Add a button to start it immediately. Currently only solution is to change the executing time!

  3. Notify Slack when deployment is successful

    I would like to inform Slack on when a manual deployment is successful or failed. It will tell me what the source environment and what was the destination environment. It will also tell me if what the success/fail ratio of the tests that were run.

  4. Org Management/Oversight Dashboard

    I would really benefit from a dashboard option. A single place where I could see my CI Job history, Unit Testing Jobs and Monitoring/Backup history for all/a subset of my orgs.

    I am using Gearset more and more to manage the state of my org's metadata, so it would be nice to be able to see it all in one place.

  5. Allow Monitoring Jobs on Source Code Repositories

    Currently, Enterprise users can create monitoring jobs on sandboxes, so that they may be notified when a sandbox's metadata changes. It'd be great to be able to perform the same monitoring action against source code repositories (GitHub!).

    An example use case would be detecting when undesired metadata types enter into the repository. This is important because CI jobs will fail on certain metadata types, so we want to ensure that they never make it into source to begin with. Additionally, our business has decided that some metadata types should never be captured into source.

  7. Auto-generate deployment note and git commit message

    When Gearset makes a commit, it defaults to a blank deployment note and blank git commit message. Although I can edit this , it would be awesome if you can merge in details from the deploy to the commit (like components changed, what salesforce user made the change etc)

  8. For CI Jobs initiated by Github, dynamically send CI failure / success email to the user who committed to the repo.

    Currently, we can only specify a list of users to email, a Slack channel to update, or a Chatter group to post to when a CI job is successful or fails. If there are multiple notifications to a number of people, it's likely they will filter out these messages, so being able to notify the person who the CI Job is most relevant to would be a good improvement.

  9. Have the option to attach test details to test notification email

    When you set up notification options for test monitoring, there should be a checkbox for attaching the detailed test result csv file to the email

  10. 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?

  11. Send a link to the report in the notification

    It'd be nice to have a link to the report included in the notification for any scheduled monitoring, test run or deployment/validation.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    When you run a deployment, the deployment success email contains the PDF of the deployment report, as well as a link to your deployment history to view the full information.

    For the test/change monitoring emails, what sort of report would you like to see? Would you like to see the full information on tests run or just a summary of key stats?

    We don’t currently provide the ability to export PDF reports for our change and test monitoring jobs in the same way as our deployments, but it’s something we’ve been thinking about putting in.

    Thanks,
    Jason.

  12. CI Validation Job report should show version of metadata API used for CI

    A nice-to-have UX feature would be to echo the metadata API version used in the CI Job on the Validation Errors report (or any CI report). This can be used to aid in troubleshooting

    This is especially helpful when a source or target org is using a Preview sandbox

  13. Ability to have automated process to maintain field list in Production environment

    With GDPR, companies are required to provide justifications for all data that they collect. In Salesforce this means being able to identify why all fields in the system exists, categorize fields as PI, and provide business justifications. The ability to keep a list of current fields in a production instance of Salesforce that includes alerts when new items are added, or ability to sync that list out to another tool like Smartsheet, where other business users like a legal team would have visibility, would be incredibly useful.

  14. Add an Ignore option for change alerts

    Sometimes metadata comes back from Salesforce in a different order, which makes it look like there was a change when there really wasn't any. It would be nice to have a way to flag such comparisons as Ignored so I know I looked at them and decided that they didn't need to have any further action.

  15. Custom text within automated emails

    I simply want to be able to add some lines of text to the emails that are triggered.

    In our case this would simply be to let the team know the deployment was complete please proceed with any manual steps for example. In our org this would simply save a step for the release manager to have to trigger an email stating this and be included in the email triggered by gearset.

    This functionality might also play out nicely that we could have some more specific text around the test jobs that we trigger. For example, we have thought to…

  17. Would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying

  18. Add a copy to clipboard button for Deployment friendly name

    I find that I'm frequently copying to the clipboard the friendly name of the deployment into the notes of the next deployment or the friendly name of some other deployment. In addition to the pencil and delete buttons, add a copy to clipboard button

    Note I still support other User Voice suggestions like auto-copying the deployment notes from Deployment X to cloned deployment Y or auto-defaulting the friendly name of the deployment from the deployment notes.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
