  1. Automatically pre-call `mongod --dbpath <path>` for connections to localhost.

    On Windows, whenever we connect to a localhost mongo, we need to call mongod --dbpath <db path> in a Command Prompt or Powershell prompt before clicking the "Connect" button in Compass.
    So Compass should offer the ability to automatically "pre-call" that and then perform the connection (if call was successful).

  2. Tabs Name

    Hi,
    When you open a DB with Compass, all of the tabs are showing

    Documents
    DBName...

    and you should mouse over them or click them to find out which they belong to which collection
    Instead of always showing “Documents” and “DBName”, you may show which collection they are

  4. Yellow triangle icon for "drop index" and other caution messages

    In MongoDB Compass, when I use the Drop Index functionality you get when clicking the "trash can" icon next to an index in the Indexes list on a collection, it shows a red "!" triangle icon in the upper left. That icon is used here to mean "Caution! You are about to do something dangerous!", as confirmed in Support case https://support.mongodb.com/case/01122132.

    I think it's more conventional to use red icons, especially "!" or triangles like this, to indicate that an error has occurred, and warnings or cautions are more conventionally indicated in yellow. (There's probably some UI/UX documents or…

  7. Option to always show the Project, Sort and Collation options

    Every new tab always has the Project, Sort and Collation options hidden by default, with only the Filter input displayed. You have to click "more options" to show the additional controls.

    I understand the space-saving rationale of this, but I use the sort option for easily 90% of queries I run, which makes clicking the 'more options' every time a bit of unnecessary friction.

    Maybe you could provide an option in settings to "always show all query options"? Or remember the last expanded/contracted state, and default to opening all new tabs in the same state?

  8. Tabs disappear when dropping a view

    Regression in v1.36.2: when dropping a view (and probably a collection, I didn't check) that was an open tab, all open tabs disappear. Then they reappear if you select a collection (or view) that was opened previously. If another collection (or view) is selected, then previously opened tabs will disappear in favor to the new selection

  10. In-order to make the Compass more aligned with the Atlas, can we have Chart feature in Compass as well?

  14. visual feedback on array / object size in document preview

    Could we have a visuel feedback in document preview (Documents, Aggregation) for the array / objects size? It could be between parenthesis next to the "Object"/"Array" label => Array(5) for example

    The basic need was to identify quickly which array/object are empty: could start by removing the ability to expand by removing the ">" in front of the field...

  16. Possibility to have _id field with new ObjectId added to each array element automatically

    Hi,

    I thought it would be a good idea to have the option to have an array automatically add an _id field with new ObjectId per element if its an array of object.

    In our use cases, we mostly update/delete items by their _id.

    In the case where we want to do a bulk $push or something similar, there are currently no way of generating the _id's except looping through our array and generating the ids beforehand which is not ideal.

    Another option would be to be able to use an update operator to generate a new ObjectId.

    For example:

  18. Compass for IOS and Android

    Hello,

    It would be great if there was an app for MongoDB Compass on IOS and Android. This would allow people on the go to access their database quickly and easily.
    On IOS, there are already applications for MongoDB, but they are paid, and not official.

    I hope many of you will approve of this idea! (I need it 😄)

    Have a nice day,
    ~ Polo

  19. _id field listed first

    The _id field is not always visible when browsing through the data, because of the sorting. It would be great if _id is always visible by ensuring it is listed first.

  20. Keyboard shortcut to change DB/Collection

    It would be nice to have a Cmd/Ctrl + P or Cmd/Ctrl + K shortcut like in VS Code or Slack to quickly switch to a different collection or database without having to click around as much.
