Why use a tooltip when I can use a data label or hover text?

Any instances you can share where a tooltip would be more beneficial than a data label or hover text? Maybe I'm missing the forest for the trees here.

    Hi @Joe_M

    The tool tip fields allow you to put additional information into your hover text or data labels without having to generate a new beast mode to display all of the information that you need. You can refer to them in the analyzer settings as %_TOOLTIP1/2/3 etc
