GANT 2.2.3 limitation on number of tooltips?

Gantt Chart Visualisation - "Parent Field" 

Hi! Is there a limitation on the number of tooltips you can add to the Gantt chart? I cannot add more than 3.

Hi Charlotte. Thanks for your reply. The tootips I'm referring to are not report tooltips. 
I have tried with different fields but cannot add a 4th field as a tooltip to the chart, see below screen shot.

Any ideas? Thanks! BR Carina

Hi, @Carina1178 


There is no limit to the number of tooltips that can be added to the Gantt chart. If you are restricted from adding, consider if you have touched other restrictions.


There are a few considerations and limitations for tooltips to keep in mind.

  • Button visuals also support tooltips.
  • Report tooltips are not supported for Power BI visuals.
  • Clusters are not currently supported as fields that can be shown in report tooltips.
  • When choosing a field to be shown for report tooltips, when using a field versus a category, visuals that contain that field will only show the specified tooltip when summarization with the selected field matches.
  • You can turn tooltips off completely for a visual in Power BI reports. However, when you pin that visual to a dashboard in the Power BI service, the basic tooltip will still be displayed.


Here is the related document, hope it can help you.
