  1. Email notification for failed deployments

    Getting an email when a deployment succeeds is nice, but it would be nice for failed deployments too. (Unless maybe I've missed an option for this?)

    • Ability to store elements selected during a Comparison for later use

      Use case, before a deployment I determine which components I want to deploy, validate the deployment ... but then want to complete the actual deployment at a future date from within Gearset (i.e. once we get sign-off from the client).

      Yes, I am aware you can download the validated package. I want to (ideally) complete the actual deployment in Gearset.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Deployment summary screen

            On the Deployment summary screen, there's no indication on what are the source org and target org. Would be nice to be able to check before the actual deploy.

            • Org metadata snapshots

              Allow a snapshot/backup of an org prior to running a deployment. Allow us to use this as a source of a new deployment if we want to revert any changes previously deployed, or at least download the package.

              • Allow users to choose when change monitoring and unit testing jobs run

                The change & test automation is great, but we can't choose when these jobs run. The option to choose when to run jobs so they don't coincide with dev work would be a great addition.

                • Option to run tests when deploying to dev or sandbox orgs

                  You run tests when deploying to production orgs, which is great, but sometimes I want to force tests to be run when deploying to sandboxes or dev orgs. Can you add in an option to run tests for these orgs?

                  • disable changes due to white space tabs

                    Create a way to turn off diff that are caused by spaces, tabs, and returns.

                    • Show which tests have been run

                      In the post-deployment summary, rather than just list the numbers, list the actual tests that have run.

                        We’ll look into how we could add this without making the interface too difficult to dive into. In the meantime, our new unit testing automation feature may be of interest – it allows you to automate unit tests and see exactly which have passed and failed.

                      • Add merge functionality to the diff tool

                        Extend the diff tool to allow the user to perform a merge, creating a new version of the component that contains some changes from the source version and some changes from the target version. This would be very useful in a team development scenario where multiple devs are working on features in individual dev sandboxes and then pushing completed features into an integration sandbox.
