In a traditional and real office environment, activity and accomplishment reports are still needed particularly in production and sales departments. These are most needed in a virtual employment situation to document what have transpired or have been accomplished through the day. This does not require so much time and besides they are for your own protection rather than a requirement of the client. It can develop trust and confidence between the VA and the Client.
