A Viewer has little reason to need to see a formula in a column that is being displayed to them in a Report.

Please remove the hover for the Formula (the other hover that displays the full contents (display value) of the cell is OK, just hide the formulas.

Or tell me why this is a good feature.

    I agree with this in part. If an admin is viewing a report, having the ability to hover would be a great option for troubleshooting a report, but if a user does not have editing privileges then it would be good to not have the formula appear.

    I third the motion.

    +1. I have a report where the first column is an ID generated by a formula. Whenever the report is opened, the first cell in the first column is selected, and the formula displays. It's incredibly annoying and my report viewers should not be seeing that formula when they open the report.

    Clients are getting annoyed by formulas appearing when they click on a cell with formulas.

    I agree... added a product enhancement request - would like to have an option to turn off/on formula display.

    This is quite distracting when we try to go over external facing reports.
