Tableau Key Concepts

These concepts don't really belong to any topic, but they drive the fundamental way in which Tableau works.

Tableau Tooltips - Full beginners guide including Viz in Tooltips.

Tooltips are additional data details that display when you hover over one or more marks in the view. When you select one or more marks and hover, tooltips also include options to filter marks (exclude or keep only), display marks that have the same values, create groups, create sets, or display the underlying data and even have charts embedded in them that respond to the data points you move over known as Viz in tooltips. If you don't want users to be able to access tooltip commands, you can disable them.
