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

We can't justify investing in Power BI without such a very basic feature. As someone who regularly reports our data analysis-related projects, it's absolutely mandatory to be able to arrange the order of the legend however our internal and external want them to be.

Of course, there are workarounds, but they cost too much time, which adds up significantly if you need to setup 40-60 charts per report, most of them containing stacked bar chart elements. And without a proper and efficient way to do so, the charts just don't make any sense at all.

RE: Custom order for legend

the option to custom sort multiple columns in a table would be very helpful.

RE: Custom order for legend

Please add this feature. This is somewhat a basic feature for all stacked charts.

RE: Custom order for legend

Please add this feature! It seems like a very basic function that should be available out of the box.
