Bar Chart Sort/Order

For the Charting tool, specify descending/reverse order for a Bar Chart type, so that it puts the largest value at the top.


Hi @mateevici,

Thank you for the input! We are in the process of detailing out some improvements for the Charting tool; I will be sure to include this request in our discussions. Great idea!


Status changed to: Under Review

In the old charting tool, you could change the order of the series by moving them up or down. This feature has been eliminated from the new charting tool. I want sales percent to be the top bar, but despite which 'series' I put it in, inventory percent is the top bar, as the order appears to be alphabetic. It would be nice to have that option added back in.


In the new charting tool, you can adjust the number of decimal places for your series, which is great. Adding '%' as a suffix to the series label would be nice. There is an option to add to the axis label, but not to the series.


Horizontal axis (x-axis) displays at an angle. Having an alignment option (center; vertical; horizontal; etc.) is preferable.

Hi @mateevici

We wanted to give an update on this idea! As of the 18.3 Designer release we have introduced a new Interactive Chart tool which has replaced the existing Charting tool and will bring a much more interactive experience for creating reports. With this new tool, you can easily specify the sort order of your data that is coming into the tool and ready for display in your chart. We are also focused on continuing to build additional experience improvements into this Interactive Chart tool; the team is looking into the possibility to be able to specify the sort order within the Interactive Chart tool as well (vs. upstream).


We hope you find the new tool fun and useful!
