Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Creating weekly status reports

Tuesday, June 9, 2009 by Emily Boyd

RTM isn't only a great way to keep track of the tasks you haven't done yet; it's also a handy way to review what you've accomplished. RTM user nmj3e describes a neat way to create status reports with RTM:

These office supplies make me look busy, right?

Every Friday, I am required to send an email to my boss detailing my work for the past week. I have found RTM to be invaluable for creation of these weekly status reports. I have a Smart List called "Status Report" defined to search 'completedWithin:"one week of today" and location:Work'. This not only lets me see all of the things I have accomplished in the past week, but it also gives me an incentive to make sure all the things I am doing are tracked in RTM so that they get reflected in the status report.
