  1. Screen reader support

    Hello,

    Visually impaired users rely on a screenreader to have information read by a speech synthesizer or displayed on a braille display. Popular screen readers are VoiceOver on Mac OS as well as JAWS and NVDA on Windows or Orca on Linux Desktop.
    Currently, a screen reader isn't able to work properly with MongoDB Compass.

  2. Be able to sort document fields alphabetically

    It would be useful to be able to display columns for fields in a document in alphabetical order

  3. Add an action to the contextual menu of the view to copy the pipeline to the clipboard.

    Currently, we don't have an easy way to save the aggregation pipeline steps used to create a view. Also, after deleting a collection, the view aggregation steps are no longer visible. We would like an option to allow saving aggregation pipeline steps for this use case.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Touching a collection on the left hand side, wipes out your work in aggregations with no warning

    Touching a collection on the left hand side, wipes out your work in aggregations with no warning

    When using aggregations and you are busy with your pipeline(s)

    If you left click on any of the collections on the left panel, 

    It wipes out your work on the aggregations (no warnings at all)

    [Yet when we paste in an exported version of the pipeline it gives a warning]

    This makes it hard to teach people how to use aggregations, as they have to treat the left hand panel like a land mine (and all they wanted to do was to look…

  7. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. _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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. Cmd/Ctrl + Enter to Submit Query

    After typing a custom query / filter, pressing Ctrl/Cmd + Enter should execute the query.

  15. Respect custom roles/Specific Privileges

    Currently Compass does not respect collection privileges properly. If you limit access to a particular collection in a DBuser assigned role or specific privileges it shows you no collections.

    I have confirmed this with customer support as demonstrated in the file attached.

    This is very strange to me, and I don't know why this fairly simple functionality isn't there.

  16. 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.

  17. 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 ?

  18. Add an option to visualize raw json query plans

    It should be possible to import a raw execution plan generated with .explain(), and have it visualized in Compass!

    Why - so we as developers don't need to read the JSON manually.

    This would be very usefull when debugging slow queries using the aggregation framework.

  19. Allow customers to copy a pretty print formatted json

    Currently when copying a document from MongoDB compass, the copy button will put the stringified json onto your clipboard. However, the text that is copied omits whitespace. As such, if I want to make the json more human parsable, I need to visit a website like jsonformatter, paste the document, then recopy the cleaned json doc.
    Would be nice if we could specify whether to copy w/ or w/o whitespace formatting.
