Open collection view without initial query
Often, especially on collections with large documents, I want to open a collection view and enter a query without waiting for the initial query that always happens when I open a collection view.
Hi there, this became available with 2021.6 – let us know how this goes for you if you try it out.
A nice way to address this may be to make 'initial page size' configurable on a per connection basis (it's currently only configurable globally). Would that work for you?
The "open collection view with custom page size" really helps, but if the documents are REALLY big, there may still be a significant lag.
I suggest one of:
a) "open collection view without run" (so we can start forming our query parameters from scratch),
b) "open collection view with custom projection" (so we can only list fields guaranteed not to slow down the initial query), or
c) Both? ;)
I found the new option to 'open collection view with custom page size' helps in my case. I can limit it to just open a single doc, then enter my real query. Just being able to go straight to the query would still be useful, though.
Agree. There is a delay even on smaller collections over VPN. I almost never want to view the entire collection, anyway.
Related: place the cursor between curlies in the query field. Can then just hit enter to run a full query, or start typing query immediately, like I usually want to do.
