Enable the ability to selectively remove default values from displaying in tooltips.

This same idea request is bundled into several other tooltip related idea requests that together had over 1,000 votes:

However, this functionality is still not available and those ideas are marked as completed so we can't even vote the ideas up anymore.

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

I want not only to be able to remove the default ones, I want to be able to replace them - meaning that in a line chart for example the color indicator should stay but be displayed with a measure that I choose.

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

It is very important and frequently requested by users to have the ability to hide Longitude and Latitude from tooltip on the map because it is useless info for them. Is there any workaround or even custom map visual as quick solution?

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

As others have mentioned being FORCED to display latitude and longitude entries in the tooltips is space-wasting and worthless to the users of the map (and others) visuals.

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

Showing my users the Latitude, Longitude in the tooltip is ugly & messy.
Please let me remove these from the tooltip.
I'm surprised this is not already possible.

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

creating a separate tooltip page for every visual in your report when you just want to remove a standard tooltip value is not very efficiënt

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

As noted earlier, lat/long tooltips on a map REALLY annoying

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

This would make a huge difference. I was also disappointed that it wasn't included with the other updates. Hopeful this catches on!

Removing this would unlock a lot of cool visuals! Currently working on a timeline visual where full control of the tool tip would make a big differnce.

RE: Remove default values from Tooltips

Very true, surprised that this was not fixed last time they made the tooltips section 'customizable'.
