Depeding of what you need you can use emoticons.

For example if you want to show a  🛈 icon to show a page with that info, you can createa a measur with that emoticon (Information Icon = "🛈") and add it to a card. That card visual let you to configure a ToolTip

Page ToolTips for Buttons & Images does not exist yet, hopefully this will become a standard feature in the future but for now this is a good work around, have a look at the following YouTube post.

Could you provide step by step instructions on how to do this?


I have overlayed a hyperlinked text box over an image, but I cannot figure out how to add a tooltip.

Hi @Anonymous

Drag a field into the Tooltips bucket in the Fields well of the Visualizations pane.

Once tooltips are added to the field well, hovering over a data point on the visualization shows the values for those fields in the tooltip.




Best Regards

Hello Maggie ,


Thanks for the response ,

Actually as I mentionned on my post I need the ToolTip to be applied not only on charts but on images as well .

Not sure if there is any possible way to do that ?


Thanks ,


Hi @Anonymous

Do you refer to this kind of "image"?


As searched and tested, it is not possible to do that.


Best Regards


Yep that is exactly what I wanted also.  I have an image.  I have an action on it.  I would like to say: "Click here to show menu"

@TheMayneLine @Anonymous ,


You can find an option,

Select the image go to Formatting -> Action -> Tooltip and enter the text what you want to say.
