  1. Indent Collection on Left Panel

    After the layout update in 1.34.1, it is harder to tell what is the parent db and what the collections are. It would be helpful to have the collections indented.

  2. QoL: Rename the Windows shortcut from MongoDBCompass to MongoDB Compass

    I often search Compass (without MongoDB) on Windows Search and it does not show up because its written as MongoDBCompass instead of MongoDB Compass.
    It would be a nice QoL improvement.

  4. Add support for languages (localization, internationalization)

    Tagging a few languages for searching / SEO:
    Mandarin Chinese
    French
    Spanish
    Bengali
    Hindi
    Portuguese
    Arabic

  5. 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:

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

  18. _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. 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
