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

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

RE: Custom order for legend

This would be handy. There are workarounds, like creating measures for each segment and adding them individually to the chart. But that is just plain ugly.

Should be a priority if Power BI really wants to be an option for dashboarding or any application people have to share with management or an audience outside of data crunchers.

Need to easily sort stacks by values inside a column while maintaining order specified on X axis.

RE: Custom order for legend

Yes!! Yes!! Please implement. Also agree this would fix quite a bit of the sorting issues we see in PBI today.

RE: Custom order for legend

the way you can do this in other BI tools it to have a Dual () function in the load process or to have a sorting function as part of the visualization. it would be great if Power BI had this same kind of functionality

RE: Custom order for legend

While we wait for this feature, has anyone figured a workaround? Other than changing the labels of course.

RE: Custom order for legend

Or sort by a field that is not in the visualization.
