Additions or rollups feature in canvas

Use case or problem

When I’m planning for a project or a sprint, I like using the canvas to map things out. I have these parts of the plan where I have to add ballpark hours for each task to have a better grasp of how much time I actually have to spend in my week to get them done.

This is how it looks like. Doing the manual math is fine while the map is still small, but it gets complicated really fast when I add more tasks that are nested deep into the map

Proposed solution

Can there be a feature to use simple rollups or math from the information inside each card? I know quite a few mind mapping tools with this feature and would be great if Obsidian can do something similar

Current workaround (optional)

I’m currently copy pasting an image (if it’s small enough or links from that other software
