2024 Week 8 | Sigma: Can you customize this tooltip?


A good data visualization strikes a balance between enough and too much information. For this week’s challenge, we will explore a couple of ways to customize tooltips. Customizing these can help provide users with meaningful information without overwhelming or crowding the visuals.

I’m sure you’ll knock this one out of the park!
