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.

    We would like to have the option to remove the default tool tip fields in Power BI.

  • Natarajan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes. We also would like to remove the default tool tip fields in Power BI.

  • William commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, this is a "No-Brainer." The ability to toggle off / on and customize the tool tips is essential.

    I would suggest to have the ability to not only display, but also have the ability to include links to a SharePoint where definitions and other metadata.

    It seems such a basic customization that was not included by oversight. Or is it a Power BI way of forcing me to create every chart with an R script?

  • Arturo Rangel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I use funnel charts to display top/bottom information, but the PERCENT OF FIRST / PERCENT OF PREVIOUS are confusing for my clients. they ask me to remove it all the time. It is a must to have the customization possibility.

    I have date (yyyy-mm) and total sales fields for my graph with current and prior year, the date field for both tooltips show current year which does not make any sense for prior year sales....

    It's pretty bad to have to display the longitude and latitude in every hover over a map.
    Especially since I can't display the data I want without the tooltip and hover.

  • Madhura Tutare commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Features required:
    - Ability to rename the DATA LABELS, within the tooltip.
    - Formatting of Data labels,& include custom text within the tooltip.

    Thanks

    I'd like to be able to have Action URLs on tool tips. The urls should be driven by parameters in the report. For example you can go to a Customer's SalesForce page from a Customer Chart.

    - Customize the size of the tooltips box
    - Having the posibility to change the label of the dimensions by removing "First", "Last" , "Count" etc.
    - Flexibility to customize the tooltip
