If you’ve identified a feature that you feel is very lacking in Metabase, or that you think would just be really cool, there are a few things you can do:
See if it’s already been proposed:
- Check and see if your idea is already on the high-level Metabase roadmap.
- Browse the open issues in our GitHub project that are tagged with either New Feature, Proposal, or Being Discussed (we don’t use that last label too much anymore).
- Try browsing through this Discourse category to see if there’s already a discussion going on about your feature idea.
Still no luck? You can then:
Lastly, you can take matters into your own hands:
- Code up the feature yourself and submit a pull request to Metabase. We regularly accept external contributions to Metabase, but our standards are high, and we’ll require tests and core team approval before merging a PR. Check out our Contributor Guidelines for more information.
- If this feature is an absolute must-have for your organization, you might also consider sponsoring it. Learn more about feature sponsorship here.
