Wanted: Sorting Stacked Charts In Power BI

Melissa Connors would like to control stack order for a stacked chart in Power BI:

Currently, it’s displaying the stacked column in alphabetical order from the bottom up (coyote/red on the bottom, fox/black in the middle, and wolf/gray on the top). I want the ability to display it by the count for each type, not the name. In this example, I want the order of coyote, wolf, and fox. I believed that there must be a way to control the order within a stacked column, so I clicked all over the UI and fired up the Google.

Read the whole thing and vote for this Power BI idea if it’s interesting.
