  1. 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

  3. Get filters white list in SDK

    It would be great to have a method to get all the white-listed fields when embedding a chart with the SDK. It could help to automate the filters implementation.

  5. 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.

  7. Candle stick charts

    Since continuous line charts do not allow iterating through more than 50k documents, it would be great to have simple option to merge/ aggregate data e.g., into candle sticks for time ranges (per day, per week etc.)

  9. Different Security Level to Add Data Sources

    I would like to restrict who can add data sources to a charts project.
    I want to allow individuals to author their own dashboards and charts but I would like a smaller group the ability to add data source

  10. Do not allow same item to be added to data sources

    We are seeing that we will have the same data source added multiple times.
    This is confusing to the end user

    Thanks Scott. We currently allow this because it’s possible the user would want to have multiple data sources pointing to the same collection, but with different data source pipelines.

    That said I agree 100% that it’s confusing, and we have some plans to rework data sources to avoid this situation.

  11. Allow non Atlas data on Dashboard

    In the on-prem version of Charts the page at
    https://docs.mongodb.com/charts/onprem/data-sources#std-label-add-data-source

    mentions,

    Procedure
    From the Data Sources list, click the New Data Source button.
    Enter the Connection String URI of the MongoDB deployment to which you want to connect.

    For the Atlas version I would like to pull data from any of my Internet accessible MongoDB servers to form a more complete enterprise dashboard. Much like with Compass, all that is needed is a connection string and you are off too charting. The strict only Atlas data access is a bit too restrictive IMHO.

  12. 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

  13. UUID fields are not getting parsed correctly

    Charts does not seem to support UUID fields and applies some sort of string value to it that cannot be encoded into UTF-8.
    That makes it very hard to ping what is the exact documents they are associated with if we use that field for grouping.

  14. Add support for contextmenu event within embedded SDK

    In the latest Charts beta there is support to hook click events to a callback.

    chart.addEventListener("click", (payload) => { .. } )

    I tried hooking the context menu (right click) event

    chart.addEventListener("contextmenu", (payload) => {...}

    but Charts asserts that is not recognized with a dialog

    Not supported event: contextmenu (sic)

    Being able to have both (left) click and the context menu user interactions will provide developer flexibility along with a better and more consistent user experience.

  19. Change Charts Query Order and Timeout

    I use charts as an iFrame embedded to my website, and our clients ( another Team inside my company) should always analyse different user IDs data. Having that in my mind, I created general purpose graph charts and when used, the query inside the iFrame would query the user IDs wanted.
    The problem is that, your mongoChart would first do all query inside the Charts ( Query and Filters) and then filter the document (on iframe code) that should have been filtered before. The result is that, even for a small collection ( 1 million documents 200mb size)…

  20. Convert data timezone via injection from JS SDK

    As a Saas provider i would like to have a single chart and stored the data in ISO format. Display the same chart to business from different continents with local time for fields like createdAt or updatedAt.

    Currently the way to do this is clone the same chart and set convert to tz for each chart and serve them
