Turn off tooltip and remove default tooltip
Ability to turn off tooltip and ability to remove the default tooltip (ie the columns used to create the visual).
As some people have already noted in the comments, we’ve actually shipped this feature already! It was included as part of our July update to Power BI Desktop. You can read all about it in our blog: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-july-2018-feature-summary/#tooltips
And of course, if you have any other feature suggestions, please make sure to vote on them.

Ability to remove default values from tooltips would be really useful! I've voted for it here: https://ideas.powerbi.com/forums/265200-power-bi-ideas/suggestions/37516831-remove-default-values-from-tooltips
For the ESRI maps, there is no Tooltip tab under the format pane. Like it should show Border followed by Visual header, without Tooltip as an option in between as would be the case with bar or line chart visuals.
How should I remove certain tooltip values in this case?
You can try setting the transparency to 100% which will act like hiding the default tooltip yet we can use Report Tooltip.

If I am not wrong, this is available now.
Adding custom expressions, including the integration of charts/sparklines into tooltips is a very commonly used case. This would be a substantial feature to have added to Power Bi reports as well as SSRS reports.
Remove tooltip would be very useful to reduce redundant information shown to end user.
Editing/formatting tooltip is also very important!

It also be handy to change formatting options on the default tooltip, mainly 'display units'
Please add this feature to turn off default tool tips.

Need capability to have edit and formatting options available for default and custom tooltip..
Having a Top-N on the tool tip would be tremendously useful - e.g. if you have a line graph with 100+ categories, it would be useful to see the top 10 rather than the default alphabetical sorting.

Can't believe that this isn't a feature already. This is much needed.
It would be good if the default tooltip can be modified or deleted, but with the ability to add custom tooltips. For example, in an x-y scatter plot, I'd like to hide the numeric Y value from the tooltip but add my own custom tool tips like person name.

Please allow us to remove the default tooltip! It would really improve/clean up the display my reports.

I need to be able to disable the default values in the tooltip. For example when I have a multi value column chart and want all measures to be shown in the tooltip the measure I am hovering over appears twice....this is annoying.
Image URL's are very long.
It is imperative to have the option to turn them off
Do not fix the height of the document make it grow automatically
buy tableau software and stop copying it...
Would be very useful to customize the tooltip, at least on maps. The nagging default values are a nighmare.

Also vote this feature for freely customizing tooltip
