We have discussed doing this recently - especially whilst we’ve been looking at the footfall system (and watching everyone else look at the footfall system).
Footfall is fundamentally a Settlement system. So I think it would be much clearer if you could open any beacon in the settlement and collect for footfall for the whole settlement.
We would just need to move the GUI around a little and make it clear that this was a settlement action, instead of a per beacon action.
I’ve made a note and will try and include this in a future update.
