As you can see, tooltip box displays here element's name, class, and current condition. This is not bad, but sometimes it would be very helpful for admins and end-users to have some extra/custom information displayed in this small tooltip box too.
How to create a new property for an existing element?

Property type for our "_mosol_ElementTooltip" property should be set to "Text", however some other types might work here as well.
Once the property is created, you can modify it with your own text, just go to element's property window. An alternative here might be a small, event driven automation script, which would change this property value, as needed.
And here is the result in all his glory:
