In keeping with the tradition of (hopefully) useful, but lengthy, lists, I’ve started compiling all the components that can’t be migrated through Change Sets.

Salesforce actually has a list of all the components that can go through Change Sets, but the opposite is more helpful for planning deployments and knowing what can be done manually ahead of time. If you’re using the Metadata API with Ant, then you can use the following list of unsupported metadata types, although it seems to be outdated as of the 36.0 release.
