## Sorting the stack in a stacked bar chart in Qlik Sense

I have a stacked bar chart of employees and percentage of products they've sold.  The bars are the employees sorted in alphabetical order.  How do I sort the stacks in the bar by percentage each product was sold?

I have found solutions for this in Qlik View, but I need the solution for Qlik Sense.

Unfortunately this is not possible.

Whatever sorting you use for 2nd dimension, it will be evaluated in overall level irrespective of 1st dimension.

And stacks in every bar will be sorted according to that.

The order under the sort tab is:

Employee

Percentage Sold

Product

In addition, I have sorted by expression where the expression is percentage sold.

The stacks in the bars are still not sorted.  😞

Hi Ryan,

Below can be the solution.

Go to Sorting > Product > Untick the Sorting Auto > Tick Sort by Expression > Add the same expression as your measure.

drag the percentage ABOVE employees
