Line Chart Tooltips Issue

I'm getting redundant details on the tooltips of my line chart.  The salesperson name is showing up twice.  Once associated with the legend and once associated with the value.  Why is it doing this?  Is there a way to remove the "SALESPERSON" item from my tooltip?  It looks bad to have the person's name show up twice the way it does.

 

Thanks!

Re: Line Chart Tooltips Issue

Hi @Trudgeon

When i add columns and measures to "Value" and "Tooltips" field and set the "Tooltip" as "Default", it shows the same as you.

As tested and reseraching, i'm afraid it is the default design in Power BI currently.

you may add your idea here to let more people know and vate for your idea, finally it may be accepted by Product team.

 

As a workaround, i change the Tooltip setting  from "Default" to "Report Page".

I try two methods.

One is to use Card visual and Text Box, also create new measures to show each person's value.

 

create measures

Michael = "Michael"

value-John = CALCULATE(SUM(Sheet6[kg]),FILTER(Sheet6,[salesperson]="John"))
tootip-John = CALCULATE([kgs],FILTER(Sheet6,[salesperson]="John"))

value-Michael = IF(CALCULATE(SUM(Sheet6[kg]),FILTER(Sheet6,[salesperson]="Michael"))<>BLANK(),
CALCULATE(SUM(Sheet6[kg]),FILTER(Sheet6,[salesperson]="Michael")),0)

tootip-Michael = IF([value-Michael]=0,0,CALCULATE([kgs],FILTER(Sheet6,[salesperson]="Michael")))

in another page, called Page3, add [date] column, these measures in the Card visual, also create two Text Box and write "KGS SOLD" in it.

Then set this page as "Tooltip" by turning on "tooltip" button under the Page information and selecting "tooltip" under Page size.

for the Line chart, select "Report Page"-> Page3.

The second method please see my pbix->Page2
