A client's use-case for the splash page is to track their church's weekly attendance by asking the members to login to the wifi. They can then run reports of who was on the wifi. The issue they are having is the splash page is forcing people to authenticate every 90 days (highest available setting) which is affecting the accuracy of the reports. Is there a way to disable the forced-login if the user has been active within the 90 day window?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Here is an example of a small branch office I have.
Thanks @NolanHerring for the suggestion. That data hasn't seemed to be very accurate of reality. It is constantly over-counting all of the numbers. It's in a busy area so the data is registering way more "visitors" than there really are.
@NolanHerring That is something that is being discussed. Yes, they have to make an account before connecting so we get basic information about who has been there but they haven't decided if it's important or not. One of those may-be-nice-to-have-in-the-future situations.
I agree with Nolan Meraki isn't really designed to be used as a sign in tool, why not just have visitors sign in using a tablet at the entrance or even more basic get someone to stand at the front door with a clicker to count the number of people as they walk in?
Hey Blake, Thanks for the input! A kiosk isn't feasible for a variety of reasons and a tally counter is a tedious task for hours at a time every week for many of the volunteers. I think they may end up just turning off the registration but I will have to see how it goes.
What about using an MV camera and using the person counting feature (search for "Total Entrances" in this article)?
