Adding Tooltips to Hover Text in Heat Maps

Good afternoon,


I really enjoy using hover text to provide more insight in my Domo cards. This question is regarding heat maps.  I am trying to add a "count" of a variable not represented in the heat map to the hover text as a sort of FYI to the viewer. However, the tooltip feature is grayed out. Can you advise if these are just not available in heat maps at this time or if I could be doing something to take a way the functionality? Tooltips are functioning in other chart types.Heat Map Tooltip.GIF

Thank you,

    Have you gone to the Chart Properties and to the Hover Text Settings? In there, you can manipulate what you want displayed on hover. Click the + sign in the Hover Text textbox to add any of the commonly used values. You can also add static text by simply typing and add line breaks by adding \\n . 

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Mark,

    I did try that, but the obstacle I'm coming across is that the variable I want to display is one other than the category, series, or value, which is why I wanted to put it in a tooltip that I could then include in the hover text. However, the tooltip is not available to me in this heat map, so I'm wondering if that is just a specific limitation of that chart type.


    Thank you for your time!
