skip() method

In MongoDB, skip() method is used to skip the documents from the collection.
We can use skip method to implement in pagination logic.
Syntax:-

 db.collectionName.find().skip(numberOfDocument);

Consider, you have employees collection and it has 5 documents

[
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e736deec6e20ea057831"),
		"name" : "John",
		"age" : 35,
		"department" : "department A",
		"salary" : 200000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e7c0deec6e20ea057832"),
		"name" : "Rom",
		"age" : 30,
		"department" : "department A",
		"salary" : 70000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057833"),
		"name" : "Tony",
		"age" : 31,
		"department" : "department B",
		"salary" : 40000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057834"),
		"name" : "Peter",
		"age" : 32,
		"department" : "department B",
		"salary" : 30000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057835"),
		"name" : "Andrew",
		"age" : 33,
		"department" : "department C",
		"salary" : 20000
	}
]

Now, you want to get the documents which are starting from the 3rd document.

> db.employees.find().skip(2).toArray();

Output:-

[
	
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057833"),
		"name" : "Tony",
		"age" : 31,
		"department" : "department B",
		"salary" : 40000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057834"),
		"name" : "Peter",
		"age" : 32,
		"department" : "department B",
		"salary" : 30000
	},
	{
		"_id" : ObjectId("5f26e9dedeec6e20ea057835"),
		"name" : "Andrew",
		"age" : 33,
		"department" : "department C",
		"salary" : 20000
	}
]
