  1. Sum as Annotation, Include "Previous Period"

    I am using Charts to track "direct" sales of my app. Other sales charts, like those featured on Stripe's dashboard or Mac App Store, feature a sum and "previous period" metric that quickly shows you how much sales are up/down for a given period. See attached.

  3. Optional Aggregation

    Most chart types rely on aggregation due to the nature of MongoDB datasets. Sometimes I have simple datasets where I want to set a field not as an aggregation but as the value of a field. Yes, we could use spreadsheets to achieve this, but its nice having all the charts in one interface

  4. Possibility to use filter parameters in later stages

    We use embedded charts with aggregate queries for comparison of multiple date values. In our case, we are in conversations, we want to know for a certain week how many conversations were started and how many finished.

    We do this book filtering on $or for the startdate to be in range OR the finished date to be in range. This works well. The problem is that later on, for instance in my aggregate query I would like to use the filter values pushed in by the embed URL, for instance in $group or $facet stages.

    Suggestion : make the filter…

  5. Chart element counts

    Charts should allow us to access the number of categories in a chart (e.g. number of bars, number of series/legend items). In this way we will have information to further customize the rendering, on the fly, via SDK if need be.

  8. User Defined Choropleth

    Choropleths are limited to predefined regions right now. There should be a way to define your own geographic regions to fit the needs of your business.

    EG. Pacific NW may be Alaska, Washington, Oregon for one company, and include Idaho for another company. Or to define neighborhoods in a city.

  9. 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.

  10. Data processing in the same cluster region

    Currently any data visible through the Charts UI is routed through AWS US East.

    For customers inside the European Union it could be problematic to transfer the data to the US due to GDPR and data protection laws. Especially when dealing with sensitive user data.

    Data processing in the same cluster region would be a huge improvement to Charts.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Filter on multiple fields with embedding SDK.

    I think this is important for charts to tell an adequate story. With the dashboard 2 or more filters can be applied but when the chart is embedded only one filter can be applied. When using an authenticated login I need the possibility to restrict users on more than one condition without having multiple dashboards. For viewers on web app its also necessary to comb through the data easier.

  20. add categories for dashboards

    add the possibility to add categories to each dashboard so that it's possible to use them as a filter or viewing in a tree like / multi level structure.
    handy for when you have many dashboards
