Custom Sort Visualizations

In Sigma, you can customize the sort of components in your visualizations by choosing to sort on any measurement of the data, even if it is not represented in the visualization itself.

Before you start: This action uses the editor panel. If you have not done so already, open the editor panel from either Explore or Edit mode.

  1. Right click anywhere on the visualization.
  2. In the menu that appears, hover over Sort, to show the Sort submenu.
  3. You can be able to sort your data by multiple plotted fields/marks.Ā 
    Under the field you wish to sort, select Custom sort....
