Is there a way to deploy picklists from a dev org to a sandbox with mavensmate? If not, what is a good alternative?

1 Answer 1


MavensMate will be able to deploy picklists from dev to sandbox, because it is built on top of the Salesforce Metadata API.

An alternative from my team is Gearset. Gearset will be able to deploy that picklist for you in about 10 clicks from first visiting our website to a finished deployment. The screenshot below shows what our user interface looks like

We offer a full 30-day free trial and don't require you to install anything in your org so no lock in.

    Does Gearset make the picklist values consistent i.e. add new ones and remove spurious extra ones or does it only add the new ones?

  • I actually had some deletions just out of sight in that view, but they had client names in them so I purposefully scrolled them out of view! Apr 19, 2016 at 15:24
