Adding tooltips to Column Headers.

Hi 
I am currently creating a report with a Matrix Visual.  How can i have a tooltip on the column headers. 
For instance, the image below is a Matrix visual i have in Power Bi. I want to be able to Hover on the column headers and see certain information. For instance, If I hover on the Billable RTU's column I want to see (Source of Data is Agenda).

This does not completely solve the problem. The issue here is the button icon is static, so if you slide the matrix to see columns on the right of the matrix the button icon does not move with the column. If there was a way to group the button to the matrix this would have been perfect. 

Hi  You can change the width of the canvas to avoid the scroll of visuals, and yes it is just a workaround.

As I mentioned at the post that I linked

This option doesn't exist in Power BI, unfortunately.

Only at addins like zebra / inforiver.

There is also an idea about this issue, please vote for it here:

Hi @lamlamm24 
Unfortunately, we don't have this functionality built in.

But there is a workaround with buttons that you can implement to reach a goal.

Please refer to my responses at the linked discussion

It also has a demo pbix to let you follow my steps
