Getting Item Detail Behind Insights

I just started a free trial for the Power BI service and am trying to figure out something basic with the Get Insights from the Dataset.

 

I have the dataset in my workspace and run the View Instights. It loads up some interesting visualizations. I find one interesting and click on it to make it the Focus Mode. I run the Get Insights on that visualization now. 

 

That brings up new visualizations along the right. There are several that indicate outliers. (In my case stock purchases.)

 

I click on one of them to make the focus. I wind up with the situation below. I have outliers that I wish to drill down to or somehow see the details of those items. I can pin it to a dashboard but I don't think that's the solution because I fumbled around with that a little.

 

I'm very new to the Power BI service so I'm very clueless at the moment. Thanks for any help

HI @TimCPA ,

 

My suggestion is that you recreate that specific visual in the desktop.  And then, add your own tooltips or other items as you see fit.  At first glance, that appears to me to be the Scatter Chart.

Hey @TimCPA ,

 

So, when you hover over this dot, doesn't it give you hover help?  If you are looking to add more detail and do more things with this visual, you can take a look at the type and the fields and then recreate it as a new visual in the servicer and/or add it to your Desktop file.  That way you can add drill down or hover help or other functionality. 

 

Is that what you are looking for?

It doesn't do anything when I hover over it or even right click it.

 

I was hoping there was a way similar to if it were in the Desktop either to right click and Show Data Point as Table or use that visualization as a filter and use it to limit a new table visualization showing then only the outliers I highlighted.
