Tooltips in Tables/Matrix

Hi,

 

Having seen the new Tooltips feature in the July update, is there a possibility to add a field to the tooltip but in a way that would not show in the table?

 

I miss the tooltip section in those visuals...

 

Thank you,

Tamir

Hi @Tamir,

 

Do you want to show only part of Tooltip for table visual?

 

I'm not very clear about your requirement, could you describe it in more details?

 

Besides, we could turn off the Tooltip for the visuals, If you go to the same tooltip card you use to control report page tooltips, you’ll see a toggle has been added to the card. If you turn the toggle off, you’ll receive no tooltip at all when hovering over the visual.

 

Best Regards,

Cherry

Hi @v-piga-msft

 

In my table, I have the fields: Country, count measure.

I would like to show in the tooltip another field called "Capital" which is not represented in the table.

 

This is what we can do with bar charts for example. We can add as many fields as we want to the tooltip field and see the relevant data according to filter content.

 

Regards,

Tamir

Hi @Tamir,

 

Do you want to achieve the output like below?

If it is, you could create the Tooltip Report page for table visual as the same as bar chart.

 

More details, you could refer to the attachment.

Hello @v-piga-msft

 

Please find a screenshot as an example.

I want to add columns to a tooltip section.

 

I have more than 20 tables in my report and creating a tooltip report for each is not practical for me.

 

Thank you 

Tamir

Hello @v-piga-msft

 

Please see a screenshot from the file test you uploaded:

 

There are a little blue circle and a message that pops when pointing on that icon.

 

It happens to me in other reports that I actually do not get the report tooltip page but instead, I get only the "Classic" tooltip data. I cannot understand under what circumstances that happens. 

Meaning, under what circumstances the report page tooltips is not supported?

 

Thank you,

Tamir

Hi @Tamir,

 

Sorry for misunderstanding your requirement before.

 

By my tests, I'm afraid that we may not achieve your requirement for table visual, because it doesn't have the field Tooltip.


It happens to me in other reports that I actually do not get the report tooltip page but instead, I get only the "Classic" tooltip data. I cannot understand under what circumstances that happens. 

Meaning, under what circumstances the report page tooltips is not supported? 


 

In addition, the message means that this field for Tooltip will be used when you tooltip report page is not supported, such as in dashboard or viewing reports in mobile apps or in embedded environments. In these circumstances, if you have added the SalesAmount to Tooltip Filed, it will back to default tooltip.

Re: Tooltips in Tables/Matrix

Thank you Cherry,

The strange thing is that I get that message in a regular report. Not dashboard and not mobile. Just a simple report.
I used to get the report tool tip and than something happened and I got that message.

I did not find any reference to it on the net.

Thanks
