Here is an example of customizing the weekly report template to fit your needs. Some teams and organizations prefer to include Task Status into weekly reports. Task Status shows progress – usually as percentage of completion – of tasks assigned to the individual contributor. Receiving weekly task status may be helpful for the project manager – the project manager can simply copy task completion percentages from each individual contributor into the project management software, e.g. Microsoft Project.

I feel that posting task status in this fashion is a little old-school – there are good, mature online project management and tracking tools where the individual contributor can log in and directly update his/her task status. In this situation, the project manager does not need to manually copy task completion percentages into the software – the online tools automatically roll up updates that individual contributors directly entered into one nice report or chart.
