i would like to share one issue, just to make sure i don’t miss anything, but an important one to cover in a report, it is about the following question:
e.g.: there is a viusal in a report, measures, showing dates, sales and whatever, how can i transport additional information to the users, like what is inculded or excluded, description how this is calculated exactly and so on. For me the information should “sit” on the visual itself?
i already use the following methods:
- comments in measures (not visible for users of dashboard)
- tooltip (not available in all visuals)
- extra page with descritions (nobody wants to jump between pages)
what i really would like to do is place a comment on a visual, which appears if you put mouse over it, similar to “comment in excel cell”, or something like this, or else
so the really open question is, which best practices are used out there, it would be great just to get some ideas, screenshots / explanation how to get this solved
