Add the ability to reorder items on a chart

We use charts to show the allocation of features to different products or other data. The items on our charts are always listed based on alphabetical order. We would like to reorder the list to group items appropriately.

    Thank you for your idea. This is currently possible by adjusting the order of the report that you are creating the chart from. For example, you can create a pivot report and customize the sort as needed. This will carry over to the chart when "Chart data" is selected.

    Thanks for the link. I’m trying to do a custom sort order. In this case the choices to sort the data in the column investment area are either Ascending or Descending. I would like to order the columns in a custom order to group items that go together. Is there a way to do that?

    Hi David, there is not a way to do an arbitrary sort. One option would be to add another custom field which could be used to group items together and sort using that. You can sort using fields that are not actually present in the report so you would not have to include this custom field in your actual report.
