  1. Add color context to title sections for favorite colors

    We use color context for ssh terminals when connecting to a production vs qa environments. I've noticed you can color context a Favorite. But if you color only the favorite button, it doesn't give you a full view of if your in production or not.

    Suggestions:
    * Add that color to the background of the title area where the collection name, document count, total size is.
    * On the row view section. maybe just a small color icon on the left empty space of each row.

  3. Um PWA ou App Android para Chrome OS _ A PWA or Android App for Chrome OS

    Vejo que há versões para outros sistemas.
    Acredito ser mais produtivo um PWA ou um App Android visando ser usado no Chromebook que assim seria um apk para o Chrome OS.
    Isso ajudaria aos usuários do Chrome OS, a se organizar mais entre os processos de desenvolvimento em meu ponto de vista.

  4. Be able to save and restore the tabs complete with their existing queries, projections and sorting settings.

    The description is in the attached graphic. The gist is being able to save the Filter, Projection, Sort, Skip, Limit settings for each tab as a logically grouped set of tabs which I can give a meaningful name to and perhaps stores them on computer as a JSON file and I can reload that json file after connecting to a MongoDB and restore my tabs.

    Also, once you have this functionality, it would be nice since the application itself is written in Javascript to make a Microsoft Visual Studio Code plugin out of Compass as well so I can have…

  5. 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.

  7. 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".

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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:

  12. Open collections in new tab if modifications were made in the current tab

    Here's my workflow:
    - I open a collection
    - I then run some filters to check some entries
    - I want to check something in another collection, so I click on the relevant collection in the sidebar
    - My tab was overriden and I lost my filter!
    It should have opened a new tab, because I actually interracted with the previous tab.

  13. Current hard-coded font puts a lot of strain on the eyes and hard to use

    I just updated Compass to v1.33.0 from 1.23.0 version and immediately got blindsided that you switched font to serif, which is much harder to read, even though the font itself is a bit larger.

    Zooming just a little bit in v1.23.0 makes it very comfortable to work with, but zooming in on serif font in v1.33.0 makes it huge and the whole app is less usable for me.

    After struggling for a bit, I uninstalled v1.33.0 and installed back v1.23.0. So far it works, so I will keep using it for the time being.

    I attached both UI screenshots at…

  14. Show a wait spinner while Explain Plan is working

    When explain plan in Compass takes a long time to analyze, it appears as though nothing is happening and it looks broken.

  15. Allow following a referenced ObjectID to the associated document

    I have documents that reference other documents in other collections using the ObjectId. It would be really helpful if I could follow these references in Compass to the associated document.

    For example, if I find a specific document by using the standard Filter/Find mechanism in Compass. From there I see that some of the fields in a given document reference another ObjectID (potentially in a different collection)

    It would be nice to have an available action (maybe an action icon?) that would take me to the related document.

    Currently I have to copy the desired object ID, switch to the…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. 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

  20. 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.
