How to add an additional dimension (i.e. string from other column) info to the QlikSense tooltip window ?

Does anyone know how to add an additional column info to the  Qliksense tooltip window of a (e.g.) bar chart?

Example: If I have a special product code (x-axis) and it's count (y-axis) visualized in a bar chart, I'd like to use the code translation (which is a string in a separate, adjacent column = another dimension) into the tooltip window.

The translated string (=which is a product description to the code) can be much too long for a label in the bar chart space, but very useful to get the clear translation once you hover over each bar.

Thank you!

In the tooltip menu, disable 'basic' and use custom tooltip' ; you will get to use expression where you can use Maxstring(Description) or similar for the same.
