Is it possible to order a pie chart based on angle / size?
Hi there. I am interested in reordering my pie/donut charts so that the pieces are in order of size. It appears that the current default order is alphabetically, based on the label (color) names, going clockwise starting at 0°.
This is what my pie chart currently looks like:
Is there a way to reorder them so that the 25% slice is next to the 18%, then 13%, 8%, 7%, and so on?
I think in most cases there's a lot more value to pie charts when ordered in terms of size. Especially when there are several similar numbers - it takes much more effort to compare 3.27%, 3.44%, 3.04%, etc. when they aren't ordered by size.
Hey Greg , I'm the PM working on updates to our new charting system. Thanks for raising this!
We definitely understand the value of ordering series in charts and are currently working on the infrastructure that will support what you've described here. I can't offer any expected delivery dates just yet, but we'll be sure to reach out when we get closer.Reply
Hi Greg Phelps / Bill Sherby / daniel lee
I wanted to provide an update on this. Mode recently released a number of new enhancements to our charting engine, including the ability to sort series in a variety of visualizations (including pie charts):
Hope that helps - please do reach out to our success team via in-product chat or firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of further assistance. Thanks!Reply
