Tooltip for Matrix visual (and others)
For the Matrix and the Table Visuals (and others), tooltips simply show the value of the item over which the Pointer hovers. The behaviour of the tooltips differs from PBI Desktop to Browser in Terms of Duration of being shown and the truncation of longer texts.
Other visuals (e.g. bar chart) have a customizable tooltip that can be filled by a special field well. Please add the same functionality to table and Matrix visuals!

upvote for this. tooltips should be everywhere available. in MATRIX tables, it would be great to show the name of a customer on hovering the cust number.
Tooltip should be present almost everywhere and be allowed to be formulated. Report Builder has implemented this so nicely. Please use ideas from Report Builder.

I would like to have tooltips available for matrices and slicers to display additional variable information. For example, a slicer may include a user name, but I would also like to display the employee id. However, concatenating these values interferes with the slicer selection. Additionally, I would like to hover over a field in the matrix and display addition information about that variable row.

For a given field in tables and matrix, we could use the 'description' input of its properties to serve as tooltip when one hovers column headers
Additionally, it would be great to have a tooltip for editing lengthy and complex measures with many variables, so that when you hover over the cell, it shows the locally calculated values for each variable in the measure.
