Add a tooltip page in your report

A really efficient way to get immediately more insights is to use a tooltip page in your report. I consider it is a good practice if you don’t abuse of it. The content of the tooltip may be static or dynamic depending on the value which is hovered.

How to

  • First, create a new page and hide it
  • Then, go to the “Format” tab of the “Visualizations” pane :
Under 'Page information' select 'Tooltip'
  • Under “Page information” select “Tooltip”
Under 'Page size' select 'Custom' type
  • Under “Page size” select “Custom” type and set width & height (ie 600 & 300). It is not recommended to make the tooltip too big

  • Go to the “Fields” tab of the “Visualizations” pane :
drag tooltip fields here to add a tooltip page in your report
  • Under “Tooltip” drag the field which will be the link between the tooltip and your report (optional but recommended)

In 'View' menu, set 'Page view' to 'Actual size' to add a tooltip page in your report
  • Then, in “View” menu, set “Page view” to “Actual size”

  • Select the visual where you want to add a tooltip
Activate 'Tootltip' to add tooltip page in your report
  • In “Format” tab of “Visualizations” pane : activate “Tooltip”
  • Finally, under “Tooltip”:
    • set “Type” to “Report page”
    • set “Page” to “Auto” or select the tooltip page

As a result, the tooltip will popup each time you will hover the visual
