Gearset's Product Roadmap

We take a customer-focused and feedback-driven approach to our development, which chimes with Gearset's open and transparent way of working.

We ship small, we ship often.

We like to practice what we preach as developers of the cutting-edge release management solution for Salesforce. That's why we take an iterative and incremental approach to enhancing Gearset. By releasing to production reliably and safely multiple times a day, we provide our users with added utility and real improvements as quickly as possible.
The Product Roadmap below splits our development work across Gearset's four main product areas. And it's your feedback that drives our efforts here. If there's an additional feature you need or a problem that we can solve for you, do let us know! Drop us an email, leave us a suggestion in our feedback forum, or reach out to us via the in-app chat.
