Feature Request: Visualization to drag/drop simple summary table

When thinking about EDA, and more specifically teaching the concept of really diving into the data, sometimes its really nice to simply drag/drop a few attributes around to rows/columns and either create counts or summarize a single variable.  

The count/aggregation could be as simple as 1 per table, but ideal state, we could include row count and include another stat (row/column/total %, or an aggregation like average) per cell. 

Margin totals (row/column/total) would help reinforce the elements of "what are we looking at" and help students think about how data can take vary shapes, especially when thinking about aggregates and summaries.  

I am aware we can code something up using a variety of operators, but admittedly, it's nice to just drag/drop some columns  as you are exploring and hypothesizing (e.g. Tableau style "table" explorations) a dataset that you have never seen before.

    Hi,
    did you see 'Extract Statistics'? Not the drag and drop but gives you an overview.
    Best,

    Thanks, I hadn't used that extension/operatore yet.  That said, if I were using the built in Deals dataset, I  might want to put Gender in the column, and Future Customer in the row, and have the intersection (crosstab) be the average age and or count of rows.  The Extract Statistics is output by column, which is nice, but also something we can mostly get from typical results ouput > stats.  Thanks for the idea though!
