Unique Wi-Fi Clients over Time as a report

On my aerohive dashboard I have a widget set to show a chart of  Unique Wi-Fi Clients over Time for 30 days.  If possible, I'd like to get the values from this chart into a report.  I don't need the graph itself - I need the the 20 clients on 4/1/2014 and 40 clients on 4/2/2014 etc.  Any recommendations?

One way you can get a list of clients using your network on a day-by-day basis is to schedule a daily report of Top 10 Wi-Fi Clients by Wi-Fi Usage and have it emailed to you. Since you can choose your location and SSID/user profiles as filters in the report, you can narrow the client list included in your reports.

Hi Praveen,

This is somewhat helpful, but the specific request we're trying to fulfill is an excel report of unique wi-fi clients per day, totaled for a month for our Board (just the number).  The above setup does work, but would require us to manually type in the usage from each day to create the report.  If it's ever possible to have this type of report as a standard feature, it'd be appreciate - the data's already there in the one graph, we just can't export it quite how we'd prefer.

Thanks,
Robert

Here, here! I'm in the same boat. I don't want pretty bar graphs. I need data points! Also, if I schedule a report, say a weekly or monthly "Unique Clients by SSID over Time' limited to the SSID and Location I want, I get a PDF with a bar graph for each day, but no data values! So I have to generate a report in the dashboard ad hoc with a custom date range, hover my mouse pointer over each bar and type values into a spreadsheet with my left hand. . . . 30-31 times x 13 locations x 12 months=one cranky customer.  I don't even really want the individual daily values, I just want the total for the month for each location. Well, why not use the the 'Unique Wi-Fi Clients by Location' report for a month you say? Because that defines unique by the whole date range specified, not daily, i.e. if Joe comes in and uses the wifi on the 3rd, 10th, and 22nd of the month, that gets counted as 1, not 3. Please tell me I'm missing something . . .
