:group by sorting question and issues

Is the output list of :group by always sorted by the creation date of the "field 1 to group by "? I am trying to run a workflow to create a list of numbers but the :group by function does not allow post aggregation sorting. This is problematic as I’m creating a bunch of different graph series that have to have their values be in the same order as the X-axis on a Chart-JS bar chart so that the series values correspond to the underlying axis correctly.

If the :group by function always orders based on the creation date of the group by field, I can simply solve by sorting the X-axis the same way, but would love to hear if others know if this is always the case! I’m fairly confused why I can’t sort the group values after aggregation by anything other than the aggregated numbers themselves. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Thanks in advance!
