Reorder labels on the axis or legend


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


When there are multiple columns on the x- or y-axis or legend of a chart, you can reorder them by using the Configure Chart icon.

The order in which columns appear on the axis or legend is based on the sequence they are added. The first field is used as the primary sorting field for the chart. Adding another field adds it after the first one on the axis label or legend. If you want to change the order, you can remove the fields and re-add them in the reverse order.

This example shows you how to reorder the x-axis columns.

  1. While viewing your answer as a chart, hover over it and click Configure Chart near the top right.

  3. Click Done.
    Your chart will reorganize itself to reflect the new label order.
