  1. Show status in Chrome tab title

    In Chrome, it is possible to display info even when viewing a different tab.

    For example, I see this done with financial sites when they want to show the value of a stock ticker symbol.

  2. 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

  3. Add an analyzer/repair option for ConnectedApps w/ ConsumerKeys

    ConnectedApps are part of the Default 64 metadata set. yet if you try to deploy a ConnectedApp that uses a ConsumerKey in the source org, you will get a deployment error either "The consumer key is already taken" if target org has that ConnectedApp already or "You cannot provide a Consumer Key" if a new ConnectedApp

    Since the deployment is going to fail, there should be a Gearset Analyzer that checks for this and removes from the deployment

  4. Properly handle SFDC change of API name for Order "Activate" button on layouts

    CustomObject 'Order' Page layouts from orgs created from orgs prior to V39 may have in the layout metadata <excludebuttons>Activate</excludeButtons>

    For V39 (and possibly earlier) orgs, 'Activate' is no longer the OOTB API name for the button with label 'Activate'. The button API name is ActivateOrder. Hence, deployment fails with error "In field: excludeButtons, no such standard action:Activate"

    There is no workaround except to exclude the Order layout from the Gearset Selected Objects. This is not a good workaround for a commonly-used OOTB SFDC Standard object.

  5. Check for conflicts on CI

    We have a scenario where CI would be useful, but there is a risk of it making destructive changes...

    Orgs in involved are Prod, UAT, Dev.

    Ideal development path would be Dev->UAT->Prod with each deployment using Gearset.

    In the real world, admins make some changes directly in Prod. So, we also need to merge changes back from Prod->UAT to make sure that UAT is a realistic test environment.

    It would be great if we could make a CI connection from Prod->UAT which automatically deploys non-destructive changes, and notifies us if a change cannot be sent to UAT for risk of…

  6. The number of differences does not appear to the left of the Prev/Next buttons in XML view mode

    However, the number of differences does appear when viewing the same Apex class in APEX view mode.

  7. False positives in managed code

    When I enable comparing managed packages (e.g. when I have added a field to a managed custom object), I get lots of false positives saying that there are differences in apex code.

    On the source org, the code is show as "(hidden)"; on the target it is shown as empty. And Gearset lists this as a change.

    Obviously, I know it's not a change, but it adds a lot of clutter to the comparison view.

  8. Suggestion - make comparison highlight colors configurable

    The background highlight colors for differences are much too light to be able to be seen clearly when viewing in APEX mode. Colors are much brighter in XML mode. Request - allowing these colors to be configurable. Thanks for the consideration.

  9. 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…

  10. A count of differences could be grouped by type

    If the count of differences could be grouped by type/color that would be helpful.
    Ex: 20 differences: 5 red, 7 green, 8 yellow. It gives a better sense of how drastic the differences between Source and Target are at first glance.

  11. Allow deployment of Sharing Rules by Rule not by Object

    In change sets we can pick individual sharing rules to push (specific ones on an object). However through gearset we can only push the whole object.

  13. Provide a way to get the debug logs of failing tests

    Sometimes my tests are failing when they run during the automated run at night, but, when I log in and run the tests manually, they pass. I can see the failure stack trace, but I was wondering if there is any way to keep/view the debug logs from the failed tests so I can try to understand why they fail at night, but work during the day?

  14. Clarify installation of managed packages and allow opt-out

    It appears that if there are dependencies in the deployment that require a Managed Package to be installed/updated, that package is automatically installed/updated before the deployment takes place.

    This is great, but it needs more clarity and control for the user.

    It would be nice to know if Managed Packages are going to be installed as the result of a deployment, and if so, opt-in or opt-out of that process. It would be great if opting-out also displayed the related metadata with the dependency so those could be excluded as well.

    This may also avert some errors where metadata needs…

  15. Here's the best solution: Be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items

    Would like to be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items to make then function correctly (permissions, layouts, field level security, etc..)

    Then we could go back and migrate all the process automation stuff - workflow rules, flows, trigger, etc..

    It always starts with the data schema first. We need a quick way to see what is different between two orgs and get that synced first

  16. Display org authorisation errors

    When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

    Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:


    1. The app is blocked (OAUTHAPPBLOCKED)

    2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen

    3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

    Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

  17. Filtering by user across the app

    Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

  18. 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.

  19. Manage Orgs Re-authorization returns you to a default sorted list.

    I refreshed a sandbox. I need to re-auth my orgs. I go to Manage Orgs, and sort by my friendly name. I click re-auth, and OAuth is successful and the app tells me I did a good job. But the page it returns me to is using a different sort then I left the page with. ie, it sorts the list by username again. Just extra button clicking I'd like to get rid of if possible. I have to re-auth orgs all the time.

  20. Dependency Engine enhancement for Sharing Rules

    Dependencies with sharing rules. Roles/Groups/Fields referenced in sharing rules may be helpful to add as "dependent" on as if they are not in the destination org you cannot deploy.
