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. 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.

  3. $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

  4. 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…

  5. Custom color scheme

    I would like to have the ability to define my own color scheme that is then used for either entire dashboards or individual charts. At the current moment, the color schemes available are hardcoded. While they make the dashboards attractive, when integrated into existing applications that follow a certain styleguide, it's not ideal.

  6. Move dashboards between Atlas projects and organizations

    I would like to be able to move dashboards between organizations and projects. This will enable flexibility on any future organizational changes. Enable the ability to export dashboards and import them into new billing accounts or projects would be helpful. Or you enable sharing between organizations and projects, that will allow then users to convert the shared dashboard into it's own version. That would work as well.

  7. Custom Binning Ranges

    Hi Tom (and Team). We would love the ability to bin by custom ranges. We currently can only set a static number, which can lead to some pretty non-standard groupings of data.

    EG: For Age, we'd like to be able to create the following bins: 0-17, 18-25, 26-35, 36-45, etc... Since under 18 is a common age range to group together, the bins we have to used are 0-17, 18-34, 35-52, etc..., which isn't a terribly standard age range to group data by.

  8. Date binning by quarter

    It would be great to be able to bin dates by quarter. In particular, it would be nice to have financial quarters with a customizable start date for the financial year.

  9. Please let us save chart without closing

    Right now if I want to save my changes to a chart, I have to click "Save and Close". I would love an option to just save the changes, as I often change something and reload the code where I embed a chart.

  10. Template chart

    A great feature would be to support template charts. The intention is that you have a query that calculates a client’s total gross revenue or the amount of credit card transactions they have processed in realtime. (e.g a text chart). This template could have one or multiple input parameters (think SQL stored procedure / view). Then we could display this chart per customer which would be a game changer to us because then we could tailor our embedded dashboards to each customer.

  11. Customize MongoDB Charts - Chart title

    Can we please have general customization option for chart title as well? Currently we are only allowed to edit the chart title but we cannot format it in anyway. It would be a good option to change the font color, size, style etc. for chart titles.

    Thanks for the suggestion Priyanka. We are currently adding the ability to add a description to a chart, which can include rich text and hyperlinks.

  12. Visualize polygons and points on the same map

    Capability to visualize GeoJSON polygons and points from data collection on the same map view. That would allow user to create custom grid on a map.

    IMHO it'd be very helpful feature when working with geolocation helping to visualize things and also debug during development.

  14. When doing a lookup, sort the remote data source names

    Also, show the aliased remote data source name. If I have two data sources for the same collection, one with a pipeline filter, and the other without, and each named distinctly, show the manually entered name

  15. Add inclusive option for relative date filter

    Using a relative filter "from last 1 year" displays the last 365 days of data. If the dates are binned by month, that often means that the first month does not contain a full month's data.

    Please add an option for the relative filter to include complete data for the first bin.

  16. Editable color ordering and ability to create palette for all chart type

    Actually it looks like the colors are alphabetically ordered.
    It would be great if we can edit this behavior by occurrence of the field for example.

    It would be great to add other colors or at least a custom color palette where we can actually create a palette for each chart type

  18. Do not load filters values from database

    On large collections, loading filters potential values is very resources consuming. It would be great to not load all the data when displaying the filters.
    A button to toggle this behaviour would be great.

  19. Do not load graph before validation when editing

    Do not load graph before validation when editing.
    On large collections, loading graph is very resources consuming. It would be great to not load all the data at every configuration change.
    A button to toggle this behaviour would be great.

  20. Array of mixed types not working correctly

    When we have an array of type [String, number], the second item is considered as string and hence, not able to do aggregation like sum.

    For example, consider
    ```

    $project: {
    
    transposed: {
    $zip: {
    inputs: [["aaa","bbb"], [1, 2]]
    }
    }
    }

    I am not able to create a data table with transformed.0 in col1 and max(transformed.1) in col2
