Gearset Product Roadmap

We’ve split our development work into three broad categories: new features, feature enhancements, and deployment engine improvements.

New features

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.

Feature enhancements

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.

Roadmap 2019


Data backup

Data loader



Restore single records, preserving relationships

More improvements for deploying CPQ config data

Improve performance of grid for very large org comparisons

Data backup



We've been working on a brand new approach to backup, built on top of the same unique technology that powers Gearset's metadata comparisons.

Improved support for deploying Layouts when conflicts occur in the source and target

Directly deploy existing package to org, without comparing

A backup is only as good as your ability to restore from it. By combining our unparalleled understanding of your metadata with our intelligent data loader, we're building a backup solution that you can rely on in a crisis.
