Tooltips Do Not Consistently Display

When using multiple measures in the Marks card, the tool tip does not consistently appear.


  • Tableau Desktop


Make sure each of the measures or dimensions within the Marks card has its Tooltip included in the Tooltip formula window. Click the Tooltip icon on the Marks card to open the dialog box. If a dimension on the Marks card is not showing up, right-click the dimension and in the menu that opens, select Include in Tooltip.


All fields must have tool tip information associated with them in order for tool tips to consistently appear throughout the view.
