Add date/time data type assessment to data profile

Team - Fantastic work. One feature that (I think) would help sweetviz take off as a baseline EDA capability is assessing/profiling data/time data types differently than object data types. One major function of EDA is understanding the span of time a data set covers (potentially to identify gaps in data). If you treat the date/time values as numbers (e.g., UTC or MS Excel serial numbers) you can calculate the same insights for date/time data as you do numerical data (i.e. convert to a numeric value for the calculations then convert back to date/time values where it makes sense). Plotting the distribution of these data on a timeline would be helpful. More advanced plotting could include distributions of data aggregated by time filters (e.g., day of week, month of year, hour of day, etc.).

I’m happy to bounce ideas around with you.
