  1. Allow dismissing the new user tour

    I randomly get shown the new user tour and there is no way to dismiss it without going though all the messages.

  2. Anonymous link with password

    Hi, It would be super nice to be able to create a shareable, anonymous link to any dashboard (like what is possible now), but with the added security of a password. Simply so that you can share dashboards with others by sending a link and password separately for some basic security, but without creating actual users.

  3. Option to automatically disable charts when free-tier limit is reached

    To avoid being overcharged in case of DDOS attacks, there should be a toggle which if enabled will automatically disable the open charts in client side when 1gb free tier is reached. Another option can be a data limit where if someone wants charts to display for only 2gb as they are only willing to pay for extra 1gb they should be enter "2" in some field.

  4. Allow colours to be defined by y-axis value range

    Allow colours to be defined by y-axis value, rather than trying to reverse engineer into chart series (since the lines don't draw properly, as per pic). The one temperature line should be able to be shown as , eg, blue when too cold, orange when too warm, green 'just right'

  5. Set format for duration values for the Number chart

    It'd be great to have the possibility to format numbers as duration values. For example:

    I have a "Number" chart where I show the duration of some activity. I store this information as minutes and it'd help if I could select the format to show as h:m for example. I haven't found a way to use duration in a nicely formatted way as a simple indicator widget like the "number" one.

  6. Add "stale" indicator to charts after filter change(s)

    It would be very helpful for end-users of the Charts feature if charts that are "stale" because of changes to a filter have a visual indicator shown. It's potentially dangerous for a user to assume a chart has updated when it in fact hasn't yet started fetching data. This issue mostly impacts users on sub-optimal networks with reduced internet access speeds.

  7. Define predetermined input variables for a chart / dashboard

    Would be great if we could define "variables" (as input boxes) for a chart and dashboard that can then be used inside the aggregation query filter within the charts.

    For example - The user enters a UPC to an input box, we take that and convert it to something like:
    [{$match: {upc: /\d{0,6}$UPC$\d{0,6}/}}]

    This allows for better exposure of charts across the organization

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
