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

RE: Custom order for legend

Hi,

I also agree that this future is needed. The legend on a particular visual of mine is displaying the days of the week and due to the legend automatically ordering alphabetically, the days of the week are in the wrong order!

RE: Custom order for legend

...so it's been over a year and MSFT still doesn't have a custom sort feature?

RE: Custom order for legend

i found something, there are 3 dots in the top right corner of the chart, here you can change the order of the bars.

RE: Custom order for legend

idealy the default sorting should be

1. Folder (alpha sorted)
2. Fields and calculated column (alpha sorted)
3. Measures (alpha sorted)

0-5,5-10,10-15,15+
and i wanted to display this value in a visual in this order.

RE: Custom order for legend

'@N1c0l3 - thanks your workaround solution did the trick - but yes agree this should be a standard feature to allow custom sorting

RE: Custom order for legend

Does anyone have a quick workaround for this? Custom sort is a feature that is absolutely needed.
