The Skype for Business peer-to-peer activity report can be viewed for trends over the last 7 days, 30 days, 90 days, or 180 days. However, if you click into a particular day in the report, the table (see number 7) will show data for 30 days, up to the date (see number 2) for when the report was generated.
If you click into the details of a specific day, the table will only show data for the 30 days up to the date when the report was generated.
Each report has a date for when this report was generated. The reports usually reflect a 24- to 48-hour latency from time of activity.
