User Created Groups and Tooltips in Tableau 10.3


One problem I've noticed in tableau 10.3 is that in some circumstances it's difficult to add user created groups to tooltips.

For example, if we try to add manufacturer to the tooltip here we get an error.



So can we get around this? The answer is a yes, rather than dragging the group straight onto the tooltip we drag it onto the detail self, this does not create an error:



Now to add the manufacturer into the tooltip we have to use the tooltip editor and add it back in manually;



And now we have the group added to the tooltip! I hope you have found this little tip helpful stay tuned to @cloudstream_UK for more #TodaysTableauTips!
