Documents are individual records in a MongoDB collection and are the basic unit of data in MongoDB.
From the Documents tab, you can view, insert, modify, clone, and delete documents in your selected collection or view.
For query result sets larger than 1000 documents, Compass shows a sampling of the results. Otherwise, Compass shows the entire result set.
For details on sampling, see Sampling.
From the query bar, you can specify a query to filter the displayed documents. Click Options to specify query options.
