Charts do not offer a sorting option. The sorting is made by number of elements in the value of the Chart Data Field.
Zone based colored, Heatmaps: The default display configuration does not bring relevant information to the eyes of the user, as all is colored even if there are no values in the square. Additionally, columns and rows with no values are showing. Poor user experience.
It would be useful:
allow a sorting option in the chart creation wizard. At least A to Z / Z to A by Chart Data Field label.
allow a coloring option in the chart creation wizard. For Zone Based, offer the option to color only elements with values.
allow a display labels option in the chart creation wizard. For Zone Based, offer the option to show only labels with values.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
