Recently when I was deploying configuration for an org which has not gone live, into UAT I made note of manual tasks as i need to reuse that for deploying from UAT to production. I thought i will add few more items on the list to the list i already had. These items had to be manually configured and cannot be deployed.
- Renaming Standard fields labels
- Deletion of Picklist values
- Configuring Search Layouts for all standard objects
- Escalation rules and Assignment rules
- Quote Templates
Always as a golden rule Deploy anything with profiles as all the necessary permissions will be carried over.
