Do you have CLOSED: <....> timestamps in the buffer?
You do get these by setting

(setq org-log-done 'time)

or by doing

#+STARTUP: logdone

You can configure the clock report to be delivered for days by
setting the

:step day

property in org-agenda-clock-report-parameter-plist

Or you can switch to a daily agenda (the "d") key
and look at the clock report day by day.

Pressing "l" or "C-u l" turns on the log info for days, showing
you what you did on a particular day, provided that you have
recorded that informtation by setting org-log-done, of by clocking time,
or by recording state changes.  All this is in the manual.
