Tooltip for each column in a matrix

Hello everyone!

I have written a description for every measure for a specific matrix/ table.

This matrix contains 10 columns with 10 different measures.

I would like to add a tooltip for each column to get the desription based on a linked csv/excel file.

But how?

How can I link a measure to a excel file with the corresponding description?

There will be also add a bar chart into the tooltip.

A result is shown here:

Hi @joshua1990 ,

 

"I have written a description for every measure for a specific matrix/ table.

If they're all columns, you can add the 'description' information to the data model to realize the idea. 

But if they're measures, I'am afraid that you can't realize the idea.

What have you tried so far?  You can do this via ToolTip pages, or via SVG.

Yes, thanks for you reply @lbendlin 

@But I am asking how can I link a description provided in an excel sheet with a measure? 
I mean, of course the description spreadsheet contains the same measure name. But how is a link possible to visualize the corresponding text/ description for each individual measure within a tooltip?

You import the excel file as part of your data model and design a measure that creates the individual tooltip code.
