    Sure thing!

    I ran across this today:

    Any thoughts on an option to sort by individual value inside of each category?

    Hey Brian,

    It's a good idea and I've had a few people ask me already. Based on initial investigations it didn't seem possible, as Highcharts officially said they don't support such a feature, but after more investigation this morning, it looks like someone was able to override some of the highchart rendering functions to accomplish it. I am not sure if I can access/override these settings in Sisense though. So let me play around and I'll let you know if possible.

    Best,

    Elliott

    V2.8.0 just dropped!

    New breakby sorts for Asc/Desc per Category. This allows you to sort each categories breakby indepedently.

    Hope you enjoy!  =D

    Hey Elliott -- Perfect. Instantly useful.

    One bug: negative values are sorted as if they are ABS().

    V2.8.2 just dropped over the weekend!

    Fixed the BreakBy Asc/Desc per Category Sort with negative values. When there are negative numbers, both stacked charts are a bit confusing...expected behavior is debateable.

    I noticed that there can be an issue with showing totals when there are negative numbers in a column/bar as well, so currently working on fixing that.

    Hope you enjoy!  =D
