Introducing an upgraded Guidance experience

New tooltips built on feedback from users like you!


Wave's new tooltips are helpful in guiding users on what they are viewing and what they need to do. Some of the benefits include:
  • Improve data quality by providing users with more details on each field and what is required
  • Add in links to other resources to provide further guidance, e.g. gold standard business case examples
  • Configuration options allow you to choose to display Guidance instantly when hovering over a field or after a delay

Read more about how navigate and manage the tooltip functionality.

This upgrade will be rolled out automatically. To update the content of your Wave instance's tooltips, please contact your Wave Account Manager

In the coming months, we will be...
  • Extending this update to navigational tooltips to help users more easily learn how to use Wave
  • Adding support for measure tooltips to provide more descriptive information on what is being charted
