When importing 100’s of new documents, I had hoped / intended the document structure for 1 of the fields to be an

How can I now change this back?
If I edit a single document in the Atlas web UI, and change the datatype with the dropdown list to
Array it blanks the sub-elements. For seamless update, I would ideally like to retain those contents.
It could be a multi-stage process, such as creating a new
Array field, then copy the sub-element data into the new
Array, then delete the original
Object, then rename the
Array. But I expect some expert is aware of the best approach…
