None of us know what its called hence the rather descriptive name, but I'm talking about this -
It came about from this question and subsequent discussion >>
We can disable tooltips, and their associated command buttons but the 'items selected statistical summary tooltip' seems to have been missed?! There has previously been this idea >> http://community.tableau.com/ideas/2425 which is set to released but I don't believe it covers the above.
Id like the ability to disable this extra tooltip (whatever it maybe called )
Additional complimentary idea from Kettan - for corrrection:
It would be nice if an idea also requested correct summaries.
This could be solved in different ways:
- ignore selected totals - only summarize non-totals
- don't select totals when whole columns and rows are selected
- select all totals at the same level when a total is selected
This should still make it much easier to get quick and correct summaries of selected items.
A side note - Can Tableau forum add the word tooltip to the forum dictionary? Tableau calls it Tooltip but the forum software doesn't like it
