    Thanks for the feedback!

    The comparison viewer actually already employs the optimization you mention in order to improve the performance of the page when you have a very large comparison. We're aware of the problem with the "check all" box's performance in very large comparisons, particularly when you're currently viewing the "Selected items" tab. I believe the issue isn't actually down to DOM operations but rather a slowdown due to recalculating various internal state, such such as filtering the list for the "Selected items" tab and sorting the current view of the objects.

    We've been working on the performance of this page (and several other parts of the app), but I recognize this particular issue could probably use some more attention. Out of interest, which mobile browser in particular were you experiencing crashes with?

    I get why this might seem be a good idea.

    Would this change act as a replacement for the save draft deployment feature?

    If it's completely separate - how would you access an auto-saved entry?

    Hi Richard,

    a couple of thoughts:

    Sometimes email templates are data rather than metadata. We have to get the list of folders in the org to fetch them, we won't be able to get any templates that aren't in the list that Salesforce returns to us. We don't specifically filter managed folders but we might not be able to see them.

    Hey there! Gearset will respect any package.xml in the source git repo and use it as a filter during metadata retrieval, so by removing the layout from the package.xml you've completely excluded it from the comparison. If you want to see this appear as a deletion in the results, either add it back to the package.xml or create a branch without the package.xml. Do you use the package.xml with Ant / other apps?

    Hi all,

    We've recently released a new version of our diff viewer which includes character-by-character diff highlighting, and ignores whitespace differences at the start and end of lines.

    Hopefully it goes some of the way towards addressing your problem, although it isn't everything you asked for. Lines with only indentation changes won't show up as differences in the diff, and lines with whitespace differences in the middle of lines should now highlight just those differences in a darker colour, which will make it a bit easier to scan.

    We'd love to hear if these changes have helped, and even more if they haven't :)

    Thanks,
    Oli

    Thanks for the suggestion. We have got plans to improve the way we handle whitespace in the diff viewer, but I can't give you a firm ETA just yet. We'll keep you posted when we have an update.

    Hi Tim,

    We've recently released a new version of our diff viewer which includes character-by-character diff highlighting. This isn't exactly what you've asked for, but hopefully it goes some of the way towards addressing your problem - lines with only formatting differences should now highlight just those whitespace differences in a darker colour, which will make it a bit easier to scan.

    In addition, the new diff viewer will ignore whitespace differences at the start/end of lines, although not in the middle of lines.

    Thanks,
    Oli

    Hi Connor. If you include a deployment note in Gearset, we will carry that across as your commit message into source control.

    You can add deployment notes from the pre-deployment summary, after clicking "Next" on the comparison results.

    Adding an autofill into the note is a great suggestion!

    This is a great idea, what is the regex that you need to put in each time? I ask because I'm trying to understand if the column filters could achieve the same thing and whether or not we should allow those to be saved instead of just regex.

    Hi Richard,

    Thanks for the feedback - I think I've reproduced this issue. Am I right in thinking that in case of reports it's actually the report folder which has the invalid sharing rule?

    I've done the following:
    - Created a new report folder called "Shared folder", and shared it with a user that only exists in my source org
    - Created a new report in that folder
    - Attempted to deploy the report to the target

    At this point, Gearset warns me that I haven't included the report folder, and I tick the box to include it. The deployment now fails because the report folder is shared with a user that doesn't exist in the target.

    I managed to make the deployment go through by manually creating the same folder in the target, so that Gearset only needs to deploy the report.

    Does that match your experience?

    Hello. A large number of commenters requested the ability to carry out value replacements as part of metadata deployments. 

    Gearset now offers a feature called Environment Variables that lets you do just that!

    It works with both manual and CI deployments and lets you target either a Salesforce org or a Git repo of your choice. And, for a number of key metadata types, you can even specify the exact 'field' where the replacement should take place.

    If you have any feedback on the Environment Variables feature, please open a new feature request or simply let us know in the in-app chat. 

    Thank you for upvoting this feature request and we hope that you will find the Environment Variables feature useful.

    Blog post:  https://gearset.com/blog/environment-variables/

    Support doc:  https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/5557015-using-environment-variables-in-gearset

    Hi Paul,

    I've dropped you an email to follow up about this feature and the requirements.

    Thanks,

    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.

    Hi Celio. Would you like to see a PDF report in the emails or just a link to the app results? The emails for change monitoring and test automation have links to your job history which you can use to quickly see the results in the app.

    Scott, what object types do you anticipate needing this for most? For things like profiles, we are breaking them up into their smaller components which reduces the need to merge those objects hopefully as we'll take care of the merging under the hood.

    Which object types have you had to merge manually?

    Kevin
