Create a Status Report Automatically

If it takes you forever to generate your weekly status report, it’s time to ask AI for help.

I haven’t seen a tool yet like InSummary. When you connect your Google Calendar, the platform analyzes your work for the week to create a concise, interactive report.

Here’s what it did with my past week:

After the quick summary, it created a fun graphic that gave more details.

Every major section could be drilled down. I’m not sure how it figured out that I “Ignored” the Zoom webinar on my calendar, but it did.

The Cons

As much as I like the idea, I don’t like the permissions I had to give. They seemed more intrusive than usual, but as usual I clicked the “Accept Terms” button too fast to go through them. You should be more careful than I was.

Also, it only works for your main Google Calendar, but there’s a waitlist for other platforms.

But still… it’s interesting to see a busy week laid out like that.
