Column Aggregation (sum, average, etc.) in Grid/Table View

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

It is not possible to perform column aggregations such as sum, count, average in the grid view

Describe the solution you’d like

The grid view looks like a traditional table / database from notion. However, it does not provide an option to perform aggregation of values in a column such as sum, count, average. Having such options should aid in using the sets for inventory management, finance management etc, which generally perform all sorts of aggregation of data

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

One could create a new object of the same type in the set and add the aggregations manually. But it is not feasible and the aggregation needs to be updated for each new object added to the set

Additional context

Notion displays an overlay after the last row of a table to perform aggregation of columns:

And offers various functions to perform aggregations:

Hi! I agree with @lynxlove
I am freelance and work on several projects and it would be great to be able to enter my hours in anytype, since I use anytype for the to-dos and write down ideas on the projects. This would represent a fantastic implementation for me.
