How to see "check ins" on tfs report

It was required for me to see check-ins history and list of change-sets  have been made for specific  period of time.
And it would be good if I could do that without using report-server, ssrs or installing additional software on tfs server from codeplex,
or doing any customization to team foundation server  and without using SharePoint.

This reporting tfs client, that runs locally and create report.
1.First step is to download and install tfsWeeklyReport.msi file from this url
2.After tfsWeeklyReport installed run it and fill in team foundation server url and parameters on configuration screen.
3.You may notice on screenshot sample that application runs with blank report.Setup date range and run report.
If you get denied errors please check and update specified connection credentials or projects path on configuration form.
Report will be generated for one user or for whole team if username field is blank and account have manager permissions.

Application will connect  to server query all check-ins for specified period of time and use template to generate report.
Report generates as table where lines are tfs items/bugs and columns are days.
After that report can be exported as html  or copy-pasted into excel or emailed.

We are working intensively on updating report builder and here is list of possible new features on our list:
1.Develop new type of agile reports, including team performance statistics.
2.Store report templates into folder and allow user to design reports.
3.Develop ability to export reports into database.
4.Create tutorial how to use reporting tool.
Please let us know which feature you would like to see by emailing on info AT whiterocksoftware.com
