Ranking beastmode with fixed rankings

Has anyone been able to create a beastmode rank that does not recalculate when filtering? I know I can create a static rank in the dataflow, which I have done, but I'd like to figure out a way to mimic a fixed rank in beast mode for those times when I have to do a ranking on the fly and don't have time to run the dataflows again. I tried including a fixed function in the order by clause, but if I filter on our brands, it calculates the rank as 1 since there is only 1 brand in the visual context. I'm assuming it's not possible, but maybe someone figured out a workaround.

    FIXED would allow you to restrict the filtering however ranking isn't possible with a FIXED function because it doesn't allow an ORDER BY clause. Regular window functions are affected by filtering.
