Hover over status Macro for preview of report Edited

I have set up a project management report dashboard to show the RAG status of various projects as per this article https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-articles/Confluence-Tutorial-Your-First-Project-Management-Dashboard/ba-p/818105 Each status has a description next to it on the report - ideally I would like to be able to hover over the status macro on the dashboard page and see a preview of the description related to it - does anyone know if this if possible please?

Thanks!

Hi @Jasmine.Hatherly 

As far as I know, there is no such feature in Confluence by default.

You need to highlight the element you'd like to add a tooltip to:

And insert the information you'd like to display in a tooltip in the macro body (text, links, macros, images, etc.):

 

2019-12-02_14h52_30.png

The tooltip appears when hovering over the status in the page view mode:

That's really helpful - thanks so much!
