mode() function

The mode() function computes the mode or value that occurs most often in a specified column in the input table.

Function type: Aggregate

mode(column: "_value")

If there are multiple modes, it returns all of them in a sorted table. Mode only considers non-null values. If there is no mode, mode() returns null.
