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

A nice idea. Having to do work arounds with extra columns and order by is annoying.

RE: Custom order for legend

Really disappointed to search all over and all there are are some weak workarounds like this: https://www.kasperonbi.com/sorting-by-a-measure-not-part-of-the-visual/

This really needs to be addressed.

Having to put 01, 02, 03.....12,13,14 on the front of all your names is a pain!
