You know what? We at the Copper Blog think you deserve an apology.
See, we spend a lot of time here creating articles specifically aimed at assisting those who work in the tech industry with time management, effectively building and leading project teams, and all of those other issues that might crop up during day to day operations. Here and there, you’ll find hints to assist with keeping calm in a crisis, methods for improving productivity, or assorted recommendations for preventative measures to help keep things flowing as smoothly as possible. Basically, we’d like to think we’ve done a pretty good job so far of having you covered, and we’re going to keep right on doing just that. No apologies necessary there.
On the other hand, while all those articles might come in handy when it comes to the primary use most of our readers might have, we haven’t really touched on how to get the absolute most out of Copper Project Management Software. Oh sure, it’s great having a bit of organizational stress taken away while on the job, but those effects are by no means limited to your work life, nor are they bound to only the tech industry. There are a wide range of uses for Copper that have nothing whatsoever to do with keeping your clients happy, and we would like to apologize for not discussing this earlier.
That having been said, here’s but a small sampling of interesting and creative uses for Copper that we hope will greatly improve your life.
1) Producing a Movie
Create a project under the name if your movie’s working title. Then you can assign users to whatever tasks you need them to take care of (script writing, procuring sets, casting, lighting, what have you), share scripts, and offer scheduling and location information so everyone knows where to be and when to be there.
2) Creating a Graphic Novel
Start a project for your comic, just like usual. Assign your users according to their function, then just let them do their thing. Your writers can write and edit, your artists can create cells and provide ink and color, and the whole thing will be organized in whatever way you choose. This is particularly nice when collaborating online, when you can’t necessarily just wander over to someone’s desk and see how things are progressing.
3) Running A Fantasy Sports League
For those who dislike using a major sports site to run a fantasy sports league, Copper can help you organize and schedule drafts, share information about statistics and key injuries, and keep up-to-the-minute records.
4) Recording An Album
Let’s say you know a few people online who have some serious musical chops. Start a project, add the users, and assign everything from instrumental and vocal recording to editing and cover art design. Then, when you’re done with all that, you can use it to notify your fellow recording artists of upcoming tour dates and interviews.
5) Organizing School Activities
Copper can be used to schedule field trips and assign chaperones. It can assist in collaborative lesson plans. It can help with preparing for pep rallies, proms, and sporting events. It can even be used for both short-term and long-term assignments.
Keep in mind that this is only a small sampling. If you have anything you’d like to add to the list, feel free to comment below and let us know what you’ve got going on!
