  1. Allow use of keyboard to select a data type

    When adding a value, I cannot use my keyboard to switch between data types (like a typical dropdown).

    Example, if I use TAB, it should highlight the dropdown, then I can hit "T" which would automatically select timestamp.

    This is the normal function of dropdowns in the web - since this is an Electron app, it shouldn't be too difficult to implement.

  3. Enable copy document button if user has project data access read only in Compass

    Users who have only Project Data Access Read Only don't get access to the "Copy Document" button which allows them to paste this information in another tool. If they need to copy a document, then administrator has to grant them "Project Data Access Read Write" which creates an unnecessary security risk or potential for accidental updates. The "Copy Document" button should be allowed for "Project Data Access Read Only".

  4. Could you please make the two sides of the main interface slide?

    Thank you for your guys made such great application and let us use it for free.

    I have a little idea for improve the usability of mongodb compress.

    It hard to figure out a collection when we have a bit longer name of collections, please kindly find the following image, when we need to open a new collection, we have to close the all opening tabs and back to the first main interface, then we can find the full name in the right side, the left side is useless at this situation.

    so, Could you please make the two sides…

  5. Set Max Time with Global Preferences

    One of our customer want to set Max Time on Compass global preferences.

    It would be a good idea to set the default Max Time in the global preferences so that you can use the same Max Time for all tasks.

  6. Would be nice if this can be dockerized

    I am trying to simply dockerize this by creating a Dockerfile within this directory but am not able to get the container to start the mongo compass.
    Is this feasible? Or am I missing something.

  7. Display collection name and namespace on separate lines

    If you have a longish DB/namespace name, the labels on the tabs become pretty useless, as all they say is "Documents (verylongdbnamewhichiknowalready)" and there's no room for the name of the collection.

    This forces me to navigate through tabs to find the collection I was querying.
    I feel that the "Documents" or whatever main label is on the tabs can be communicated via the tab icon only.

    The name of the namespace could either be hidden entirely and shown only on the tab body, or shown on a separate line from the collection name.

  8. Enable toggling for boolean properties

    The annoying thing for me is my web applications are heaviley dependant on Database View content.

    in MongoDB Compass it quickly becomes a time waste to manually click a boolean property and change "false" to "true".

    Please add a small toggle box button next to Boolean values.

    Thanks, Carl.

  9. Allow for safe hyperlinking of URIs in documents

    If a document contains a well-formatted (and sanitised) URI, then hovering over it should display a preview of the resource it links to (perhaps an image in s3) or the option to click through to it using the OS standard browser.

  10. Add a code editor to save and load MongoDB scripts with MongoDB Compass

    For now, there is only a shell but why not have an editor with a MongoDB file extension so we can save and load MongoDB scripts like with MySQL Workbench?

  11. CTRL+F in results

    Implement a CTRF+F function to allow "text search" in results page (like in a Browser)

    example : In a collection, I use "Filter" field to search document and compass returns 15 documents. I hit CTRL+F and I can search a field name or a value and navigate between.

  12. 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

  13. Let detach mongoh terminal/console

    In case we have two monitors, I think is valuable detach the mongoh terminal/console in one explicit window to move it to other monitor. Of course, the option to apply the inverse should be available too.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  14. _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.

  15. Remember collection view mode selected or add an option to save default

    Currently, after you switch to table mode in a collections tab, compass won't remember that option when you open a new collection tab. Being table mode user 99% of the time, it would be really useful to remember last mode selected when opening a new tab, or be able to define the default view mode

  16. 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.

  17. Maintain collapse state when refreshing

    Currently, if you toggled open two or three children and you click the refresh button, it collapses everything back to the root document. If you are developing a feature that edits two or three children deep, every time you test something you must refresh and open those children again. I think this is similar to https://feedback.mongodb.com/forums/924283-compass/suggestions/40564825-remember-the-expanded-state-of-object-when-coming but is focused on refreshing the same collection rather than tabs.

  18. Remove background animation during connection

    For security reasons, MongoDB Compass is running on machines in a Network Zone we connect from our own computers via RDP protocol.
    During connection time, MongoDB Compass displays a background animation which consumes huge network bandwidth and if for any reason, network between local and remote is bad, the RDP screen finally freezes and the only choice is to interrupt the connections (between local to Network Zone which breaks the one between Compass and our MongoDB servers).
    Can you remove this animation or put an option to remove it please ?
