Diverging bar chart for likert scale

I'm attempting to create a diverging bar chart for a likert scale assessment (using a 100% stacked bar chart) and running into a series of issues.  Primarily, it's getting the "status quo" results to display split across negative and positive percentages. Think of this as a neutral response.

 

Out side of this, the order of the questions doesn't seem to be sorting correctly and I've been unable to adjust the legend without creating a group that includes number in front of the answers. 

 

Any thouhts on how to solve these issues?

Hi @parry2k 

 

I am trying to do exactly the same thing!  How did you manage to get the zero point to relate to "not ready for change?".  I;ve tried looking everywhere but cannot find any help on it!

@MK019127 you should sort by technique for your question column

@parry2k  I am sorting by ascendng question currently but that doesn't seem to be working - going from 1 to 11 instead of 5 which is the next sequential number. Is that what you are referring to or is there something I am missing?

@MK019127 it is sorting correctly base don string 1 -> 11 -> 111 but if it as 01 -> 11 , it will sort correctly and that's why I requested you to create a different column to sort your questions correctly using the sort by.

@parry2k  sorry, I missed creating a new column. I when to transform data and added a new column using 01, 02, etc.  but I'm confused on how I then sort by that. Or weer you saying that I should create a new column for the questions themselves? I'm a little confused on exactly what you're recommending still

@MK019127 I'm sorry if I made any confusion, I'm not sure if you read the post I sent previously and here it is again with specific section in that post. 

 

Now if you had added a new column, select your answer column (currently you are using in your visual), on the selection you will see Column Tools in the menu, and there will be an option to sort by, in that drop-down, choose the new column you created.

 

I hope it is super clear, if not then let me know what I can do to make it more clear.
