Custom Tooltips on Hover
Custom "tooltips" when hovering over a point on a visual. Month after month, I am required to offer Analysis & Actions narrative for how we're performing. It would be nice to see this by hovering over a point on a visual rather than take up valuable real estate with a text box.
We added report page tooltips back in March to support this. You can learn more my blog post here: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-march-2018-feature-summary/
It’s currently in preview, but we have plans to add support for table and matrix, and shortly after make the feature generally available. At that point, I’ll close this idea.
Come on guys!! I thought this would be a standard. Please could you add asap.

The current (May 2019) tooltip solution is not at all complete
I add on to this. Having custom tooltips on matrix and table visuals would be extremely helpful. The current default tooltip shows the exact same data the table/matrix contains, not very helpful.
Hi, it would be great if you could add a mouseover or hover text over the card visual to explain what the amount meant
A bit disapointed in the update as you cant assign a matrix or table as a tool tip. It would be great to view multiple rows of commentary when hovering over a chart.
tooltip is disappearing too fast, faster than I can read. how to leave it longer?

I just posted a detailed scenario similar to this as a comment on this idea: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/7580157-tooltip-customization-on-reports
Yes, an essential update needed. It would make reports more understandable and impressive.
In general, tooltips are underdeveloped yet they are a very important part of a UI. A matrix may have many rows and columns and the tool tip is...the same as the row text or column text with no option to attach a helpful explanation. It would be very helpful to us report and dashboard developers to be able to "amplify" a field or metric name etc. etc.
Any update in whether this is being considered. As mentioned Tableau have it and it is extremely engaging and users love it.

It would be nice to also show any text field in the tooltip as well.

Being able to add any text field as a component of a tooltip would be incredibly helpful!!
1+ Colin for the (...) ellipsis to expand a larger memo field
id like to see this more as a Title (tooltip) with an ellipsis to expand to a larger textbook type explanation or a ? for a custom help text

I have a customer who is asking for this.
Tableau has this and it's an incredibly useful capability. A great way to dynamically present more details on a specific user selected topic.

This is a brilliant idea. Wish someone had thought of it earlier. Our senior managers asked me how they could see notes specific to a chart on their mobile. It is critical because management needs to see underlying notes in case they misinterpret the figures.
