Yes, I can get the information from the search, and that's great. However for reporting purposes (like including in an email), the ability to generate the output and save it would be very useful.
I currently use the collaboration feature to meet with a colleague to walk through his tasks, but I am also getting requests from management to report on his progress. That's why I'd like to be able to
1. run the "stuff he has completed this week" search
2. save the output in a format that can easily be included into (or attached to) an email
If you need to insert info into an email and the PDF option isn't what you need, you could use a third-party screen capture tool like Snagit from Techsmith. This would allow you to quickly capture and insert what you need into an email. Snagit comes with a simple editor that pops up as soon as you capture a screen to allow you crop, resize, add borders etc, so it's quite useful.
Even though SnagIt is the most wonderful screen capturing tool I have seen till now, it's not free :(
If you only want to capture browser area, Pixlr Grabber is a really nice Free add-on for Firefox which allows you to quickly capture the entire webpage or any defined area of that and quickly edit/upload in the same way SnagIt does. You can then just send the link to the uploaded file.
