Gauging RVOL (Relative Volume), similar to SMB Capital

I want to create a daily futures watchlist, which is ranked by relative volume. For example, if the volume in the premarket session was higher than usual for some furture, the watchlist would rank it accordingly during premarket.

Does ToS/any other broker have this feature? If not, how can I workaround with the built-in features?

For more information, I want to emulate the usage of RVOL as seen on this page:
Google "SMB Training Blog Relative Volume Defined and Used"

I use ThinkOrSwim, but I'm open to looking at other platforms if they have this or a similar feature?
