    Is there a way to export a list of beacons seen in meridian as a spreadsheet? I have a customer that is asking for this information and I have not found a way to provide it to them.

    You can use the API to get the beacon information out in JSON format. You may need some scripting to get that converted into Excel.

     

    API documentation for beacons at a location is here: https://docs.meridianapps.com/article/763-locations-beacons-api-endpoint

     

    To test it, find your location id (from the URL in the editor), then open: https://edit.meridianapps.com/api/locations/<your location-id-here>/beacons

    Here are some step by step instructions on how to use the API to export Beacon data to .csv. There is a python script included as an attachment to the post.

    Hope this provides you with what you need. Using the API can be lots of fun and it's a great way to get in to Python.
