Unsynced Documents reached 100k, :scream: what do you do?

Bravo to our new community member @Mateusz_Piwowarski for trying to resolve their case of unsynced documents. Some steps to take:

  1. You can set up an Atlas alert on the number of unsyncable documents
  2. Check the log statements for reasons for unsyncable documents
  3. You can query unsyncable_documents collection in the __realm_sync database (please do not modify this database)
  4. Added a new required field, don’t forget to modify existing Atlas documents.
