How can we improve Power BI?

Tooltip customization on reports

Power BI, by default showing the selected fields in the report tooltip. There should be a option to discard/add fields from the tooltip. e.g It shows Index column in Map visualization, which can be discarded.

I’m sorry for the delay in updating this idea, but we have in fact made custom report page tooltips generally available as of the September release of Power BI Desktop. You can read the details in this blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-september-2018-feature-summary/#tooltips

Be sure to vote on other tooltip suggestions on UserVoice if you have any other specific requests.

    This is not completed as of July 15, 2019. Look at the way Tableau does it - that's the idea - complete customization of data included and the presentation of that data - font, font type, user input text that's included for every item, the ability to remove fields...Tableau is miles ahead in this regard

    that's not the same: having a tooltip page is very usefull BUT IT IS NOT THE SAME as removing fields from the tooltip list

    Agree with other comments. This is idea is only partially completed. Still need the ability to remove tool tip default values.

    Can you please reopen this vote/issue? It's only half completed unfortunately. I was sad to learn you can add but not remove fields from the Tooltip.... I have a scatter chart with a highlight function needing a Flag field. For the report end user this is a totally irrelevant field and value.

    This is not completed. What you have added it tooltip pages. I still can't customise the content of the basic tooltip - simple things like being able to rearrange the fields in the tootlip or remove irrelevant fields from the tooltip.

    While I appreciate we now have custom tooltip pages and you can add to the tooltip fields, we should be able to prevent certain fields from showing in the standard tooltip. Adding tooltip pages isn't the same thing.

    Customer get confused as we mostly use Index No so that we can sort the data. Which is displayed and create a buzz

    Let the tooltip box size be customizable. If I want a description it gets cut off because the box is not wide enough.

    I have a demo tomorrow and I am SO sad this isn't possible, burned by power bi's low price popularity and unfinished state again...

    It would be great if we could easily customize the tooltip without creating calculated fields to do so, e.g. <Text> <Measure> <Text> like "This is my custom text on the measure "<Measure Value> "for the dimension " <Dimension Value>

    Please allow the ability to remove fields that are on charts but are not needed in the tooltip. Thanks

    I agree with Greg: "Having Lat and Long on the map tooltip provides no real information and soaks up prime real-estate"

    Please let us customize this tooltip option.
