Once a year, Thessa asks you to create a report on your progress. The annual report must be completed in good time before the annual meeting of the thesis committee to ensure your supervisor(s) and thesis committee members can read it beforehand.
You can find the annual reports at the bottom of your Thessa profile front page:
The majority of the content of this annual report is automatically generated using the information in the My PhD Project -section. In addition, you must estimate the amount of time you have spent on your dissertation during the year, and describe the current status of your dissertation.
Press "Create report" to start drawing up the report:

Once your report is ready, submit it it for review. You can also include attachments to your report (for example an updated research plan), but these are not compulsory unless you have been specifically asked to submit them.
Once you've submitted your report for review, your supervisor(s) and thesis committee will receive information about the report and can comment on it in Thessa. You will be informed of any comments via email and can also respond to them in the discussion field in Thessa’s report view:
