    Conditional Formatting in Tooltips

    Julian Yi

      Is it possible to use conditional formatting in order to make a tooltip display a different measure? For example, I have 6 different measures in a stacked bar chart and when I hover over one of the marks, instead of displaying the measure that I used to create the bar chart, I want to display a different measure.

       

      I guess it's better explained through a specific example...

       

      In my workbook, I have a stacked bar chart that is created using seconds as the primary measurement. When I hover over one of the marks, instead of displaying the seconds value, I want to display the value in hh:mm:ss format. The workaround that I've come up with is to duplicate the graph as a crosstab and display that sheet as a tooltip. I was wondering if there was a more elegant solution.

       

      The reason that I haven't used the hh:mm:ss measures in order to create the graphs is that Tableau doesn't handle time durations that are over 24 hours very well, so the scaling is off. You can see what I mean in dashboard 1 of my workbook.

       

      Thanks in advance.
