Exploring the Purpose of Summary Fields

What is the purpose of Summary Fields?

Summary Fields are utilized when there is a need to view a specific set of columns regularly. Instead of searching for each column individually, you can consolidate them by creating a query in a summary field with a given name. When this summary field name is referenced in Athena, all the columns can be viewed together in a single consolidated view. However, it is important to ensure that there is a relationship between the columns for accurate results.
