How I use Featuretools for automatic feature engineering?

I am working with Lesson 3 Rossman and quite overwhelming with feature engineering part. Then I find out a Featuretools which automate feature engineering. So, do it help feature engineering part in lesson 3 ? Thank you !

I’ve used featuretools before i’ve followed the fastai course and I found it very helpful to incorporate statistical info about my tabular data such as min, max, average, etc. I was happy to see in the fastai lesson with Rossman dataset that there is a summary function that could be readily used for that too and that fastai also provides some utilities to process time series.
