The custom Sankey Chart visual (version 3.0.3) is awesome, but there is a pretty serious bug which really limits its use as a filter. Right now, if a full source or destination is selected by clicking on the vertical "lines/rectangles" themselves next to each source/destination, (for example, to display the contents of this source/destination in a separate detail table) the source/destination will "Lock" in place. If the "weight" value of the links changes due to an external filter being applied to the dataset, the visual becomes unreadable. Example below, I've clicked on the "in forecast" source:
Then I've changed my external filter combination, and this is the result, as you can see the "in forecast" category is now overlapped by other categories and is no longer visible:
The only way to "undo" this "locking" is to delete the visual and start again (from what I can see...) If I do this, the visual displays as expected with the new filter criteria:
Same filter selection, same data. Only difference is I didn't click on the "In forecast" source first.... This happens whether I deselect my initial selection or not. Bookmarks linked to original formatting do not seem to reset the issue either.
Note this is different to clicking on the links themselves - this does not seem to cause the issue.
I suspect the issue is related to the fact that you can click and drag sources/destinations to reorder them to where you want to. They are then "locked" in place to where you dropped them (there is no way/doesn't seem to be a way to reset to "auto ordering" here either). I'm assuming clicking on the source/destination is trigerring this behavior... Stakeholders want a quick way to see what makes up the links for each source/destination by clicking on them and filtering other tables in the dashboard. How can we fix this issue?
According to the reply from the product group, Sankey visual saves the positions of all elements in the visual when you drag and drop the nodes of it. If you apply a filter, it leads to a mismatch of saved coordinates and new items. They will fix this issue but the expected available time would be the fourth Quarter of the year for any change can break existing user reports. Please be patient for the fix. Thanks for your understanding!
