I should be able to order the "legend" and the values for each legend category in a stacked bar chart. This is similar to "series order" feature in Excel

Update 10/17: This is now in our upcoming roadmap and we will share more details in the coming months. Mo

Thanks for the feedback. Vote to keep updated on progress for this item.

RE: Custom order for legend

February 2022 and still have to struggle with workarounds for this very basic and simple feature. This is MICROSOFT PowerBI, not an open source fan project.

RE: Custom order for legend

Absolutely needed. And while you are at it, please also allow to define a custom color for each value in a dimension that is then used in bar charts on the legend, throughout the report, without having to adjust each visual. Thanks,Robert

RE: Custom order for legend

This is extremely important, I have reports I can't move into powerbi cause I can't order the buckets in the legend and the seemingly random chosen isn't readable.

RE: Custom order for legend

Sort by value please!! Small multiples already has that feature, why not legend?

The related suggestion for correcting the default sort order needs more votes, for those who are interested: https://ideas.powerbi.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=b1363cc1-0810-462d-8801-0e64973751c7

RE: Custom order for legend

The legend should be in the same order as the stacked bar charts as default. No one wants them in opposite order, it is confusing for the reader and therefore bad practice. Why was it programmed this way in the first place?
