Tooltips are details that appear when you hover over one or more marks in the view. Tooltips are also convenient for quickly filtering or removing a selection, or viewing underlying data. You can edit a tooltip to include both static and dynamic text. You can also modify which fields are included in a tooltip and whether you want to be able to use those fields to select marks in the view.

The circle in the center represents the root node, with the hierarchy moving outward from the center. A sunburst chart without any hierarchical data (one level of categories), looks similar to a doughnut chart.
