The example Map Function that it gives us is one that simply calls emit. Emit takes two arguments; first the key and then the value. If we click the default function, it gives us the results; and each key is null, and every value is the complete document. Let's specify a key. Select null and then replace it with doc.name. When we click Run again, it shows the name of every document as the key and then uses the entire document as the value.
Let's specify the value. Go to the second argument and add .content. Then click Run again. Now you'll notice this view has the name as the key and the content as the value. Now let's say we wanted this view to include every document in the database except the one with the Hours property. We can wrap this emit function in an if statement. So I'm typing in if(!doc.hours) and then wrapping the emit statement in this block.
