Authentication events: An authentication event is recorded when a guest successfully logs into one of your hotspots; they are not distinct; when a guest connects more than once to your hotspot, it will be recorded as a new event.
Returning guest: A returning guest is a guest that has connected more than once into your hotspots.
Active count: This sums up any data you wish to sum and then groups by another type of data to visualize. For instance, you could select to count authentications and then group by country to see how many authentications occurred in each country.
Max active sessions will sum up concurrent guest sessions in the same period. For instance, you could see that 200 persons were using your hotspots on July 1st at 4PM.
Accounts creation: Accounts creation means the number of accounts created whether the guest is authenticated or not.
