how to show tooltip on map


I have a map visual that plots different points per category selected and each point plotted has a pressure value and a date I have seen many videos that say i can create a new column with the values i need to display and put that column in the location field then set the plotted coordinates to average instead of dont summarize. 

The problem is that when the coordinates are set to average they are plotted wrong and points who are sometimes close to each other are plotted with each other in the same point not on top of it but i noticed that the tooltip displays the exact information i need. Is there a way where i can always display the tooltip information on the map instead of having to hover over each point and reading its data.



Thank you.

Sorry,  standard tooltips are only visible upon user interaction with the visual.  Use a different visual, or look into smart narratives etc.
