We’ve split our development work into three broad categories: new features, feature enhancements, and deployment engine improvements.
Major new functionality in the app which will create new use cases or substantially extend existing ones, fundamentally extending Gearset's ability to solve your problems.
Incremental additions and improvements to existing features and to the look, layout and functionality of the app, improving the way you use Gearset day-to-day.
Deployment engine improvements
Ongoing work to improve intelligence and efficacy of the underlying comparison and deployment engine that powers Gearset.
We’ll be starting the research phase on some bigger features over the coming months. If you’re interested in these features and you’d like to participate in our research by answering some questions about your expectations, and providing feedback on mock-ups and pre-release versions, then please let us know - we’d love to talk!
A lot of the main pillars of the app are in place, but there’s always room for improvement. This list isn’t exhaustive, but calls out the main improvements we’d like to make, and some of the ways we’re planning to make them.
Along with new features and improvements to existing features, we’ll be extending our comparison and deployment engine to identify more dependency types, and to catch more deployment problems that ever before. At the time of writing, we already catch 25 different types of deployment problem and track 30 types of metadata dependency, each of which could avert a potentially frustrating deployment failure. These are harder to list up-front - we spend roughly 20% of our development time adding to these, based on deployment and validation failures we see in the field, and of course, based on feedback from our users. We’ll continue to do the same over the coming months.
We practise what we preach, so we’ll be continually releasing these features, as the development tasks are completed. You can check out our release notes to see the features we’ve released recently, or you can check back to this page to see which items we’ve ticked off.
We’ll do our best to keep to this roadmap, but it’s still subject to change dependent on new information and user feedback, so please treat it as a bit of insight into where we’re heading rather than a concrete plan (and of course, please don’t base your decision to purchase on the contents of the roadmap!). On that note, if there’s anything you think we’re missing, then don’t hesitate to let us know about it via email, our feedback page, or the in-app chat.
Our first year of development yielded so many new features we struggled to list them all! Here are a few of the most popular requests:
We've kept our previous roadmap up so you can see how the features were delivered. A few features got pushed back into the current roadmap as we responded to our user feedback and priorities.
