Auto-Sort Data Series in Stacking Bar Chart


When I’m stacking my data series in a bar chart, I’d like to be able to automatically sort them. Dragging them by hand to a new sort order is painful when there are many categories in the series and new ones showing up regularly.

Specifically, I’d like to be able to sort the stack by value so that the largest blocks in the stack are on the bottom, and the smallest blocks in the stack are at the top.

I’m using the paid version of The “sort Y values” option doesn’t really do anything. Intuitively, I’d expect that to do what I was looking for.


Hi :wave:

I agree, it does sound the “Sort Y values” will do what you expect. Can you send us the query URL, so we can look into this via support?
