Dates and tooltips

Hello,

 

I am unsure how to go about this. I have a dashboard that monitors approval status with the names of who needs to approval and their responses. I have everything working perfectly, but I was asked to add a way to display the date of when each person approves the file. My thought (and it works almost perfectly) is to utilize the tooltip option on the Advanced Card visualization to display the date, but I don't want any date to show when the person hasn't approved yet or there isn't a value at all for that spot (some routes are longer than others). 

 

I have attached a picture of what I don't want. Is there a way to create a measure or a column to not have this occur? 

 

Thanks!

Re: Dates and tooltips

Hello @calerof ,

 

While I am sure this expression would work, I could not figure it out in my case which could be due to my lack of knowledge regarding DAX, but thank you for the help. 

 

I was able to find a solution by creating a new column that converts the date column of data type: date to data type: text which does exactly what I want: shows the date when there is a value and shows a blank when there isn't. 

 

Thanks again for the suggestion!
