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

Please make this happen. I can't believe we need build custom measures as workarounds.

RE: Custom order for legend

This is crazy that there is even no workaround for this...
If user wants to have legend on right side or left side it is doable only in reverted order!

RE: Custom order for legend

I've been able to do this with a stacked bar chart by making a sort column for the category column.

RE: Custom order for legend

I am aware that this is currently possible by creating measures for each legend item and creating a stacked column chart instead, and it works a treat.

But this is too much work for most of our users who wants fast, intuitive charts from their data.

RE: Custom order for legend

When can we expect the implementation, really struggling to convince users that Power BI does not have this basic & simple feature. Please bring this feature at earliest. Thank you
