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

Please add this feature. This is somewhat a basic feature for all stacked charts.

RE: Custom order for legend

Please add this feature! It seems like a very basic function that should be available out of the box.

RE: Custom order for legend

I genuinely don't see how such a basic and widely requested feature can be so overlooked. You should have to go through the rigmarole of setting up measures, or ranking by other tables. A simple drop down that allows you to drag fields to the desired order would be more than enough.

RE: Custom order for legend

please add this feature....
stacks are currently in alphabetical order... but that does not fit the requirement I have in my charts.
I want the stacks to be arranged the way the data is in the cells.
