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

For any of those struggling, you can create a calculated column using if or switch (whatever you are confident with) to calculate a custom sort order for your legend column, you can then select the legend column and under column tools set it to sort by your custom sort column, that way your legend will be automatically sorted.

RE: Custom order for legend

Olá.


Isso pode ser feito através de uma tabela dimensão com a ordem (ID) de que precisa por relacionamento com a sua tabela de fatos. Não vejo como algo impeditivo.


Obviamente que, fazer no visual ajuda e dá velocidade e leveza no arquivo. Mas isso não me impede de classificar minhas legendas da forma como quero para minhas apresentações/análises.

RE: Custom order for legend

Absolutely agree, I need the ability to have a custom sort, not just alphabetical.
