  1. Support Rendering GeoJSON on a Map

    I have GeoJSON in my collection that is storing trip data as GeoJSON LineStrings for each trip and I simply want to render the trips on a map. Basically having Charts just draw the lines for each trip. Nice to have would be defining attributes to name them and color code them. I would expect this to apply to all GeoJSON types available.

  2. Axis custom styling

    It'd be great to be able to change the font size, color, and also the orientation of the labels.
    Setting a maximum and minimum font size would be awesome.

  4. Cookies should be set with the 'SameSite' attribute

    Hi guys, Chrome 79 reports an issue with cookies set by the embedded charts. It seems like they are missing the 'SameSite' attribute. If you could bring the cookies up to speed to comply with this apparent new standard, it'd be great.

    Warning message I get in the Chrome console: "A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at <URL> was set without the SameSite attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with SameSite=None and Secure. You can review cookies in developer tools under Application>Storage>Cookies and see more details at…

  5. Search Filter on Text fields

    In Google Datastudio and I am sure in other tools like this you are not limited to randomly picked values for filtering data. We should have the option to Search and ideally be prompted with possible options(autocomplete) when filtering/searching on text fields.

  6. team access control & datasource batch access

    Controlling access for 40 team members & ~200data sources is super cumbersome and we actually stopped giving new coworkers access because it's so much work.

    I'd love if i could just give team level read access to all charts & datasources needed within the chart.

  7. Map Chart ID's to Dashboard

    After embedding a chart an id is generated like this

    id=083882db-f78f-6477-b8fa-dc8ggfd787be

    It would be good if you map these id's with dashboards like first few chars would be same for the dashboard and embedded chart .So that While embedding them into our dashboard we can filter out who can see our charts based on ID we provide.

  9. Chart Annotations

    For continuous/discrete line and area charts, I would like to apply annotations to my charts so that I can highlight certain data points of my graph. A use-case for this would be to display targets that need to be achieved for my data or to explain certain events at a time point.

    See attached image for a mockup.

  10. Capability to add additional labels to Charts

    Dear Charts Team,

    I need to add additional labels to a Geospatial Scatter Chart such that I can display additional information about each datapoint.

    The need arises, as we want to create a report, that allows the user to get an overview of the single data points as well as relevant metadata without the need to lookup this information in an additional table / connect to the Cluster and investigate the rest of the necessary information.

    The project that I am building is an internal project thus I am using the sample Airbnb dataset to make an example.

    I have…

  11. Add US Counties/Parishes/Boroughs to Choropleth Shape Schemes

    We could use a little more granularity on the Choropleth Geospatial Chart. We'd like to be able to look at a single state, and denote values of each of the counties, parishes, or boroughs of that state.

    This feature is currently available for the UK, but not for the US.

  12. Grouped stacked bar chart

    A bar chart that can be both clustered and stacked simultaneously expands substantially the analytical possibilities (as it allows the visualisation of additional fields/variables). It seems to me that such a chart cannot be generated in the current version.

    Congrats to the MongoDB team for developing Charts. It is an extremely useful resource.

  13. Custom Geospatial map

    At this point there are only a few maps available for geospatial data, it would be nice if there is a possibility to add a custom map, in my use-case I want a map of Belgium with all the towns. I understand that it is not possible to add all the maps in the world, so maybe an adding a custom SVG map through an upload functionality could be an option to allow all maps from the world

  14. Option to identify "now" in a date chart

    In a scatter plot, when one of the axes is a date, add a formatting option (on/OFF) to add an indicator of the current instant (now) on the graph or axis, if it's on the range plotted.

  15. Ability to specify the square size

    This must be at dashboard level.

    In some cases squares can be a bit smaller or a bit larger.

    If you have a table and you want to expand a little bit, but one square is too much.
    In that case you must modify the size of squares of dashboard and resize the table.

  17. Prompt-able Filters

    There is a need to frequently change the date filter to produce reports for Month-to-date, Year-to-date, Specific date range, etc. Please provide option to build charts that prompt for attribute values on filter instead of just having a static filter.

  19. Percentile Chart / Cumulative-Distribution-Function

    Often times just looking at just the average or min/max of the data might be misleading and understanding the distribution of the data is as important as the aggregated value itself. The Percentile Chart is useful for such scenarios as it helps to see the shape of the distribution, such as how big the tail is at either end, along with the value.

    My proposal is to integrate a percentile chart similar to what you find here : https://powerbi.microsoft.com/de-de/blog/visual-awesomeness-unlocked-percentile-chart/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumulativedistributionfunction

    Thanks for the great work, I realy like mongo charts, keep going!

  20. Locale formatting

    In the tab 'Customize' you can (de-)activate the thousands separators,
    The visual representation is in english locale, e.g. 1,000.00

    I would like to be able to change this to another locale. For german locale the number formatting should be 1.000,00
