Bubble chart labels

There should be the ability to label the bubbles in the bubble chart with the associated item name or some other identifier, at least when the mouse is hovered over the bubble. Currently, only the numerical values are displayed which specify x,y position and bubble size.

Agreed! Trying it just now and while it’s helpful to have the bubbles presented, it is not if we cannot tell which bubble belongs to who/what. Also while we’re at this, allows for color change?

This is a big need for my clients. They use bubble charts in Excel all the time but item labels are a must for them to be effective or at least a pop-up that shows the item name when they are hovered over.

Digging this out rather than starting a new thread. This chart feature is bascially useless to us without labels or the ability to click on a bubble and see what line(s) it is referencing. This is a critical tool for things like Portfolio selection & Prioritisation.

With no ablility to see what each bubble references, this chart has no meaning At a minimum the item name or the ability to highlight items in the linked table.

Any update on this? Without being able to see the reference of each bubble, this chart is useless. Could also do with some color coding.

Unfortunately given their MO, it’ll take a few months, if not years for them to tell us that either the feature is not worth considering, or at best “under consideration” i.e. “we hear you but we’re not prioritizing this for the foreseeable future.” Their responsiveness has been abysmal.

100%, little value if you don’t which underlying record the bubble refers to

I agree with the comments on this page without the ability to identify the items this chart type is totally useless

There’s no other way to say it, other than to say, yet again, as everyone here already has, this chart is completely useless without some kind of label on the bubbles. I can’t even click through the bubbles to get to details.

This might need third-party help. With the developing marketplace, when basic features like this are not being tended to, perhaps a vendor can take care of it.
