The $skip operator is a useful tool for paginating query results or skipping over a specified number of documents in a collection. This operator can be applied in the aggregation pipeline using the skip() method.

In the following example, we will demonstrate how to use the $skip operator:

    $skip: <number>

Here, <number> is the number of documents you want to skip in the collection.


Let’s say we have a collection named employees and we want to skip the first 5 documents of the collection (e.g., for paginating results). We can do this using the $skip operator:

    $skip: 5,
