Building Custom Sort Orders in Power BI

Reza Rad shows us how to perform custom sorting in Power BI:

I have previously written about how to sort a column by another column, and I used Month Names as an example. However, still, many are unaware that the same technique with slight modifications can be applied to any other columns. You can have a text column in your slicer (product category for example), and sort it based on a different order than the normal alphabetical order. In this post, I am going to show you how to do a custom sort order for a column in Power BI.

There are a few important considerations, so check out Reza’s post.
