Basic Tooltip Question

Hello!

 

I am proficient in Tableau but new to Power BI. Similar to Tableau, Power BI has a box to drop fields you wish to display in a tooltip. However, in Tableau, once the fields (or visuals) you'd like to include have been added, you can go and edit the way the text is displayed. I'm not seeing that option around the Tooltips box or in the formatting tab.

Currently, I have a stacked bar chart of employees, the count of entities changed, and a table name delineation in the legend box to separate tasks performed. The tooltip displays all relevant data AND the fields I dropped into the tooltip. Ex:

Changed By

Audit Date

Table Name

Count of Entity Changed

Count of Entity Changed

First Changed By

 

The final two fields are what I dropped into Tooltips. The result I'm looking for is to give me the distinct count of entity changed per employee regardless of the table name field (what task it falls under). Does that make sense?

 

If anyone has any good resources on customization and tool tip work, that would also be beneficial!

Hi @ZSF0003,

 

Tooltips Customisation is available under the General category in the Formatting Pane. FYI:

I'm aware this exists. What I'm not seeing is the ability to type out and select HOW the tooltip is written. I can change the font, but where can I change it to be,

" On <Audit Date>, <Changed By> fixed <Distinct Count of Entity Changed> orders.

<Table Name> : <Distinct Count of Entity Changed>"
