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

Update 10/17: This is now in our upcoming roadmap and we will share more details in the coming months. Mo

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

RE: Custom order for legend

So, do you at least work on it? Is it part of any future release plan?

Tableau can do that, don't make us switch

This really is an issue that it is not possible to do!

RE: Custom order for legend

Please include, the order of the stacked column legend matters

RE: Custom order for legend

4 years and counting :O

This is one of the basic requirements when putting together a chart and given that it is available in Excel, the question asked always is, why is not available in Power BI if both are Microsoft products.

The workarounds are not very useful and very time consuming.
