Is there a way to sort groups by a different value?

I’m not really sure how to ask this or if this is in the correct category, so please bear with me. I have entries grouped by Name. Within each name, I want them grouped by Type. However, I want those types sorted based on a percentage. Is there a way to accomplish this?
Currently, when I make a group, it sorts the groups alphabetically. Then, within the groups, it sorts based on the percentage. But I want the actual groups sorted by a different value, not just within the groups. Is this achievable?

Welcome to the community, @Carlee_Wooddell! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Your question is definitely in the correct category.

In situations like this, what I often do is create a formula field that creates the group sorting mechanism I want, and group by that formula field.

What are the other criteria that would affect how the group types are sorted? The more specifics you can share about your use case, the better we’ll be able to provide some formula examples that might work for you.
