    Without properly communicated objectives and tasks, the best projects and teams won't live up to their potential. That's why we're inspired by the UNLV Desert Sol Team, who takes communication and collaboration seriously. Atter all, these UNLV students are competing in an international competition initiated by the U.S. Department of Energy to build the best all-around energy-saving home. This is a really ambitious project with dozens of decathletes, faculty and advisors. It's a truly collaborative plan with far-reaching, positive implications. So how do they organize the hundreds of tasks and a team of over 75 people? Tracky.

    Jinger Zeng, Project Engineer, wrote about their project management journey on their blog citing appreciation for Tracky's drag and drop interface. The ease-of-use combined with a familiar social interface leverages the young team's strengths to tackle this intensive project.

    Besides project management, the Desert Sol team also uses Tracky instead of paper for RFIs (Request for Information), saving loads of time (and trees) by involving appropriate team members for specific needs on an as-needed basis.

    If you’re a communicator or marketer responsible for your brand’s editorial calendar, then you’re probably always looking for ways to plan better. What does “better” mean? The ability to produce more high quality work in a shorter time frame. What are some of the reasons you can’t produce as much content as you’d like? We’d venture to guess a few of these are culprits:

    • Email overload;
    • Too many files being shared back and forth; and/or
    • Various levels of content approval.

    We’ve been there. When you work with multiple people to produce, share or curate content it can get cumbersome or even, dare we say it, annoying.

    In 2013, our Chief Evangelist, Sarah Evans ,announced the launch of Google+ PR Expert Hangouts as part of the Google+ PR Community. As part of these efforts, she shares how we plan and execute on social editorial calendars for Tracky.
