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. Expose Charts creation using API and get back embedded chart's URI

    We can use Chart's API to construct the charts on demand through various JS application and client requirements, without exposing the Charts dashboard / data sources in a multi tenant application. We can use the API's to modify / create charts and get back the embedded chart URI to show on the application UI.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. 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 !

  8. 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

  9. Switching Chart Type should not erase existing settings

    If I change the chart type (e.g. a Line Chart) from Discrete to Continuous, it'd be nice if I didn't have to restart from scratch. Currently it erases my settings.

  10. $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

  11. 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…

  12. allow to sort series by a field that is not in a series

    We have one scenario in which we're adding a series for the purpose of using it in the 'sort by', specific example:
    A "Thing" goes trough "Stages" (e.g. Open Doing, Done, Closed). These Stages have a particular order. We'd like a chart of number of Things per Stages.

    Right now we the sort by options would only allow us to sort by the Value or the Stages (alphabetically). What we'd like is to be able to provide the order we define.

    There are two workarounds but are not ideal:
    1. We can do stack bars and put the Order value…

  13. 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

  14. Add median and mode to the aggregate functions for a number value

    When I use a number value in a visual. I can choose aggregates: sum, count, distinct, mean, etc ...

    I would like to have the option median and mode also. Median gives a better view than mean, if your date is sparse.

    Thnx

  15. Permissions level to create charts but not data sources

    We use the new data source pipelines feature to scrub our data sources of sensitive information. Unfortunately, though, right now if a user has permission to create a chart, then they have permission to create data sources. This undoes all of the work to protective sensitive information! Having a permission level that allows a user to create new charts but not new data sources would greatly improving the security/privacy of our data when working with MongoDB Charts.

    Thanks for the feedback Eric. Your scenario is very valid and we’d like to support this. We’d like to integrate this into the Atlas permissions model properly, rather than make it a Charts-only thing, so it may take us a little while to sort this out.

  16. Increase query timeout

    Sometimes it tooks too long to execute queries on large Collections (loading data for charts)

    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.

  17. Chart zoom

    Horizontally dragging across a section of a chart with your mouse should zoom in on the range of data you selected. Default zoom ranges would also be nice (ex: a chart with lots of historical data, but only displaying the last n-days, allowing a user to optionally zoom out to see the rest of the data).

  18. Embedding Charts with Filter UI

    Currently it is possible to generate a UI filter for a dashboard but not at the individual Chart level, where custom filter UI needs to be built. Filter UI should be embeddable together with individual Charts.

  19. Number Formatting

    When we use a chart type column - grouped option, in Y-Axis we are showing different data types (amounts and numbers). We cannot use the custom number formatting because it applies in both of data types. We would like to have the ability to apply custom number formatting to each columns.

    I'd like to define an http link in table chart for a column.

    Also, I'd like to use dynamic data (from the document) in the link.
