I have a calculated variable with values that are based on a parameter. The parameter is choosing which category variable to use as a group for the bar chart. I am trying to apply a custom sort to this variable, but am experiencing issues. Initially it seems to be working, and I am able to sort for first parameter value, but then when I change the parameter and try to sort those values, it erases my previously defined sorting. In 7.4 it kept my previous sorts, and in dashboards moved from 7.4 to 7.5 the sorting for these types of variables is preserved. Is there a different way in 7.5 that I have to do these kind of sorts?



Visual Analytics never officially supported the ability for report viewers to swap out data variables on the fly. So, the workaround from 7.4 and earlier does not work in 7.5x. Beginning in Visual Analytics 8.4, report viewers can swap out a different data item as long as the Viewer Customization level on the report is Data edits
