  1. SQL color theme

    The orangish strings are too bright compared to the grey background. It would be great to have more contrast, thank you.

  2. An API on DBInsights

    Would it be possible to access the list of DBInsights queries via an API? It would be cool to use these data in other tools and dashboards. API could be very simple; only query names, numbers and number of rows would suffice to give an overview.

  3. display the number of records per query in the report menu

    It would be very helpful to have an easily accessible overview of the total number of records returned by each query in a report in the left menu of the report, instead of having to look for the number below each query's results. It could be as simple as displaying it right after the query name, e.g. "New abc-records last week (1045)". We are looking for something that has this seemingly straightforward feature, it would be great if we could stick with DBInsights.

    Thank you.

  4. Ability to have two vertical scales

    Sometimes it's useful to represent 2 metrics side by side, but they might have a different order of magnitude, leading to one being completely invisible. Example: average rating received over time vs. number of reviews, giving 4.5 average over 2000 reviews.
    In such case it would be useful to be able to represent the average rating scale on the left side of the graph, and the number of reviews on the right side.

    Would it be a feature you would consider?

  5. "Split by" and stackable results in Queries

    I found the graphs are often not powerful enough, when in need of joining several tables together, in which case I use queries.
    However the "Split by" + "Stack results" are very nice for visualisation of a third dimension, but are not part of the queries.
    Would it be possible to add a similar split by form input to Queries? The requirements would be that it needs to match the alias in SQL and part of the GROUP BY clause I guess?
    Thanks

  6. STOP CHANGING GRAPH COLUMN COLORS

    Hi there,

    I don't know who is doing your design / development, but a basic UI rule is you don't change colors on graphs. The color has a meaning and functions as a label. Every time the colors switch it looks like the data is wrong...

  8. Custom Time Segment

    Let the user chose his time segment : for exemple from Mars to June.
    For the moment you can only watch last XX month, weeks, whatever.

    Keep up this fuckin' good work.

    In ten minutes I configured a report with my key values. So simple!

  10. White Label Reporting/Dashboards for App Users

    Can DBInsights be used to provide a report/dashboard (or several) to users of an existing heroku app?

    The real key is that each user of the app has their own data, and would need their own implementation of the same report/dashboard. There appears to be other players in this market, but they all look to be quite expensive and/or not fully working.

    What would you imagine charging per user per month?

    Thanks!

  11. Format for graph labels

    It would be useful to have an option to format graph value labels based on a pattern.

    For example, if my values represent money, it should be plotted on graph as "1'000.00 $" instead of "1000".

    Moreover, with long label values, such as "1000000000", it will enhance the readability: "1'000'000'000".

  12. Change the way you capitalize your company name...

    Change "DbInsights" to "dbInsights".

    # Why?
    - DbInsights is hard to read (for me anyway)
    - I feel like the industry standard is case-consistency ("db" or "DB") when referring to databases
    - With the "d" and the "b" back-to-back you'll get a symmetrical symbol ("db"), which can yield cool (and terrible) logos

    Cheers,

    Will Cole

  13. Access non-Heroku databases

    I've got this project that is not on Heroku and still I would love to use dbInsights on it. Is it on your roadmap ?

  14. add the ability to enter parameters for pulling information on data

    Many of the reports we need to run are based on a certain date range or other filter value. It would be great if I could setup parameter fields that tie back to queries to users can specify the filter criteria rather than creating duplicate reports with different filters.

  15. put your docs on a separate site

    looks like the main app has fallen over, taking your docs pages with it...

    I was really enjoying the experience though, until it all stopped responding...

  16. Labels *on* the graph

    I can't control the order in which bars are arranged on a graph (can I?), which makes parsing the visual information a chore. It would be significan't less difficult (read: kinda awesome) if I could see the labels right on the chart itself.

    Like so:
    http://www.ahrq.gov/about/annualconf11/levy_mcdonald_munier_sorra/levy15.JPG

    Or like so:
    http://peltiertech.com/images/2009-02/VariwidthChart07.png

  17. increase db schema resolution

    When I go to https://dbinsights.herokuapp.com/admin/graphs/schema, I see my db schema, very nice.
    But I have several tables, so the image is so low res that I don't see anything.
