Charts

MongoDB Charts is the best way to create visualizations of MongoDB data. Connect to any MongoDB instance as a data source, create charts and graphs, embed them into your applications or build live dashboards for sharing and collaboration.

  1. Conditional formatting

    After you define a KPI, will be awesome if you can color them:


    • By expressions:
      Red if number is less than 33.
      Yellow if number is grater than 34 and less then 50.
      Green if number is grater than 51.


    • By scale:
      A gradient from Red to Green (with yellow in the middle) and values from 0 to 100.


    • Static:
      Just color this KPI number purple.


    NOTE: Colors and values must be configured by user.

  2. Interactive charts

    I wish mongo charts to be interactive. like to handle clicks to view details and make data manipulations. My use case is to track low engaging users through graphs and send some notifications to them

    Some interactivity has been released (click to highlight series, pan scatter charts). Other options like drilldowns and click to filter will be coming later.

  3. Allow export/download of chart data once embedded into an application.

    Allow export/download of chart data once embedded into an application. It seems like currently, you can only view on screen in the application and you can only download the chart data if you are in MongoDB Atlas.

  4. Responsive charts

    One of the selling points for Qlik is the ability to have charts that resize depending on the screen size. I struggle a bit when resizing the screen and the charts don't resize. They should be responsive and adapt to the screen size!

  5. import/export charts

    It would be great if we could import and export the charts somehow. While the drag and drop interface is nice it would be beneficial if we could host it in our code git and test/adjust the aggregations when we change the underlying schema.

  6. Export Options

    After creating a chart, provide export options of generated graph as an image (variable formats), documents (PDF, DOCX, etc), and as a simple HTML page that has CSS styling.

  7. Add more specific roles for Charts

    It will be great to have more specific roles to Charts totally separate from other Altas roles.

    Currently if you want to have one team member allowed to configure charts,
    you have to give him access (at least read only) to everything outside of Charts space, as cluster and database informations or even Stitch configuration.

  8. Ability to toggle Dark Theme

    Most dashboards from different services offer the ability to be in Dark Mode, which is easier to read and saves loads of energy.

    As a workaround users can use browser extensions to apply a css dark theme.

    Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dark-mode-webextension/

    Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/care-your-eyes/fidmpnedniahpnkeomejhnepmbdamlhl

  10. Embeded dashboard

    Ability to embeded Dashboard.

    Approximatively same thing as embeded Charts but for a complete dashboard and possibility to add filters.

  11. Hyperlinks in charts

    The idea is to be able to create hyperlinks with data from the charts in order to create connections with other web apps. This is similar to a Kibana functionality

  12. Show trendlines in charts

    It would be great to add support for trendlines in column and line charts.

    For example, if I have a chart for daily/weekly/monthly active users, it would be very helpful to have a trendline to show if the active users are increasing or decreasing.

  13. $todayDate filter

    This allows us to create charts that give us insight whether this is a great, good, average or a bad day. The $todayDate filter range should be 00:00:00 to 23:59:59

  14. Enable $lookup for charts

    Our team needs to get data from a separate collection to add to a chart. It is possible to add the field to our collection in the aggregation pipeline builder, however $lookup is unavailable for use in Charts.

  15. Ability to add plain text

    If you have a huge dashboard with all kind of things, but you want to group them under a title, lets say:
    You have 10 charts on left with aggregations from collection A and 10 charts on the right with aggregations from collection B.
    You can easy clarify things if you put a plain text above all charts as title.

    For example:
    [Collection A] <- plain text
    All charts from collection A

  16. Clickable values

    One of the biggies missing for charts (from my perspective) is the ability to click and filter by values on the charts. Most BI tools do so and it's an easy and intuitive way to navigate up and down through the data. Similar to what "analyse schema" does in Compass, but much more flexible.

  17. Ability to send email / slack alerts based on the data in the charts

    Charts usually contain aggregated / pivoted data. Ability to alert on a specific variable would be great !

  18. Set a Custom Timezone for all Dates by Default

    Since mongo by default stores the dates in UTC timezone, whenever we have to create a chart based on the time, we need to always go to the customize section and change the timezone. It's a repetitive process and sometimes people forget, and end up exporting wrong data. (A major use-case for charts for us is also self-serve data export by non tech users)

    We can change the timezone using an aggregation pipeline, but that changes the data type itself from date to number (by splitting into day, month, hour etc); and then it's manual work in the chart UI…

    Timeout was increased from 60 seconds to 90 seconds. There aren’t currently plans to increase it further, but keeping the issue open in case it needs it be looked at again in the future.

  20. Enable integration with REACT

    Enable native integration of MongoDB Charts with REACT-based applications.
