Tableau Prep: Change Data type ( Right Click Not Left)

When you first connect to your datasource, you will see a table showing Field Names, Original Field Names, Filters and Sample. Now when I want to change the data tye of a field  with knowing how to do it in Tableau Desktop (At the data pane level), I would Right Click and change it. But seems in the case of Tableau Prep its Left Click. Not a big deal though but I feel  Left Click can be leveraged by showing some date about the field on the left side or somewhere. May be it can display the below info

  • No of Distinct values for it
  • Sum/Avg etc


Just a thought keeping in mind Tableau's capabilites
