Any progress on ability to advertise AP Host Names in beacons at least for the sake of survey?  This way All AP names are already in Ekahau after the survey is complete.

Not yet. This got a little side-tracked during our switchover from QCA-based access points to BRCM-based hardware, which have very different wifi drivers.

I am working to get a commitment to include this in our end-of-year release of HiveOS.

Thank you, that would be sooooooooooooo awesome and will save lot of time as well during surveys.  I'm sure other engineers will agree too.  Please keep us posted.

Another massive +1 for this feature here.

We've been trialing Aerohive for a while now. We like it a lot but this is one of the gotchas. This may seem trivial and not make it to the top of your development list but it would stop us being able to deploy in large numbers. I'm not going to manually collate bssid addresses to host names post survey.
