Generating Test Reports

So, Test Reports…
They are used by fellow team members and management. They help communicating results of the work done (immediate value), but they might also be used as a source for statistics (prolonged value). What does it mean in terms of expectations and requirements?
And how can we employ automation here?
– Ideas and practical examples in this tutorial project.
