  1. 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.

  2. Hover over object ID should display OID date

    People are migrating away from a "created at" date because it's stored in the OID. However, there's currently no way to view that. Most other tools allow you to see it when you hover over it.

  3. mongosh should be its own tab at the top with output options

    I hate how mongosh is at the bottom. It makes it rather hard to see the results as it involves lots of scrolling, I end up having to write a js file and using mongosh in the terminal.
    It would be good if it was it's own tab at the top and give options to view the output differently.
    The best example I can give is how the robo3t does it. When the data can't be viewed as a tree or table, it just outputs it in text mode.

    Something like this is super handy for developers and makes it…

  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. SQL to Aggregation framework converter

    The intent would be to run SQL queries directly on MongoDB Compass or convert them to aggregations

  6. Visual rule builder for schema validation

    In Compass, it is possible to create validation rules to enforce a schema. It would be good to be able to generate these rules with a simple, visual editor, instead of having to know the MQL or JSON Schema syntax for the validation rules.

  9. Open new collection tab when selecting a new collection and editing an aggregation

    When you are editing an aggregation (aggregtion was not yet saved) and select another collection, do not change the collection you are working on with the new collection. Instead open a new tab with the selected collection

  10. Make the filter editor expandable to multiple lines

    Problem: The filter edit is a 1 line text box. It is no good for creating and editing queries with multiple terms... you can only see a small part of the query

    Solution: make the filter edit expandable, so you can see 1 line or many lines.

  11. Edit field while projecting

    When projecting certain fields of a document, the UI does not allow the user to edit the document. This is a bit counter-intuitive as editing documents that have a large amount of fields is way harder than only showing the fields (via projection) that need to be edited.

  12. sticky buttons

    Make buttons to edit/copy/clone/delete (top of record) and cancel/update (bottom of the record) "sticky" as they stay on viewport of current record (something like a sidebar ?).

    When there is a lot of nested data, it could be hard to retrieve the buttons.

  13. Please bring back the previous dark theme (before 1.38.0)

    I updated Compass to 1.38.0 (stable) on Windows. The new dark theme is too high contrast for me and I would like to switch back to the previous dark theme. Unfortunately the themes available in this version are "Light Theme" and "Dark Theme (preview)". At this point I would rather use the Light Theme than use this modern dark theme. Please bring back the previous dark theme in addition to the modern dark theme, or give us a way to customize the theme. Thank you.

  14. Expand all in JSON view should be brought back

    When in JSON view, we can previously expand all properties inside a document node by using CTRL+LEFT CLICK (or ALT+LEFT CLICK, i've forgotten).

    This feature was removed within the last year.

  16. Save favorite collections for quick and easier access

    Working in a large company with many collections, while only several collections are relevant to your daily work can be a hassle.
    It'd be nice if there was a way to mark selected collections that would appear on top of all other collections or in a category, like the favorite connection strings or the saved queries

  17. Use tab to validate auto-completion

    Regression in version 1.36.2: it's no longer possible to validate auto-completion using "tab" key. Only "Enter" now works

  18. Have the Export Colelction feature list all collection fields by default

    The current feature lists the fields from a sample of documents which may miss some fields. Although it is specified in a tooltip, this is quite counter-intuitive in a NoSQL database which is all about document diversity.

    When a collection has upwards to 100+ possible fields it becomes quite tedious to figure out which ones are missing from the sample data.

    I would like for MongoDB Compass to find the complete list of possible fields for a selected collection and list them all out be default.

  19. copy query to shell

    Copy Find or Aggregation Pipeline queries directly to embedded shell. I realize you can export the query then paste it in the shell, but a nice helper would be to click a button which tells the shell to use the current collection and pastes a well-formatted query from the Documents, Schema, or Aggregation tabs of Compass directly into the shell (without executing). At least a copy to clipboard (shell format as default) button.

  20. export sorted data

    When clicking export collection button, the sort option specified should be copied to "Export query with filters"

    Examples:

    db.holidays.find (
    {Date: {eq: '2022-04-08'}
    ).sort ({System : 1})

    or even make this part editable, so we can add sort option
