How can we improve Power BI?

Report page tooltip on all objects

New report page tooltip preview feature in the March update is great.

Would be nice if we had the option of adding this tooltip to visuals that previously didn't have a tooltip.

For example, I have a card visual. I'd like users to get one of these mini report pages pop-up when they hover over it but as this visual doesn't have a tooltip it can't be used.

Would be great if we can do this on other things like shapes and text boxes as well.

        I have a problem with the dual axis bar line graph that occurred after last upgrade. The desktop version has the correct decimals on the items selected for the tool tip. When published the numbers go from 3 digits to maximum amount of digits. I tested the table formatting and query also but the published version won't correct to 3 digits.

        I agree the tooltip function needs to be expanded to all tables, shapes, buttons. This would greatly improve the ability to save space and the user can still see the details.

        We need this on buttons too. I could then use the info icon, and display a custom text box / page on hover.

        I concur about the value of tooltips and the newer Report Page tooltip across more visualizations, including the table and matrix. Got my vote.

        Real shame that the tooltip functionality isn't available on table and matrix, as these are definitely two major areas that would benefit from this addition.

        Completely agree. It's a great feature and I was extremely excited about it due to its applications on many of my table/matrix visualisations. Great to have for charts, but even better if we can have this for more visuals.
