Often I don't respond to students quickly because I don't see email notification. If there was a feature to get notified on mobile via SMS - I think it would majorly drive up engagement and allow me to respond quicker to students as an admin.

    @Lendon Bracewell if you drag any email that's not in your primary tab into the primary tab, you'll get prompted to have this done for all future emails from that sender - by selecting YES, this makes all future emails from skool go into primary

    @Lendon Bracewell this is true!

We just shipped some new gamification features to make things more fun! • Custom level names: Personalize your group by naming your levels. • Unlock courses at levels: Unlock a course or something of value when members hit a high level. • Leaderboard redesign: Now you can see your progress and what you can unlock as you level up. Watch the Loom video below for more info on how it works and how to set it up for yourself. This is an experimental feature we're playing with, so we want to hear your feedback! Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think?

Hey everyone, Introducing Skool Kompanion - A Free Mobile App for Skool I’ve made a number of tools for Skool over the past few months such as Skool Directory or the Members Export Plugin. I believe in Skool the product and ecosystem, and am excited to see it grow. As with directory, this project was inspired by seeing numerous requests about a Mobile App. In response I’ve gone ahead and created Skool Kompanion. Skool Kompanion is a simple mobile app that allows you to access Skool as you would from a browser. It also gives you access to real-time push notifications for posts and comments at the tip of your fingers. Over the course of the last couple of weeks — I have found myself more engaged with Skool due to the way notifications keep me looped in. I think this mobile app with notifications will lead to higher engagement within your groups. I encourage everyone to try it for some time, and see how much of a difference it makes. I think it will be an essential tool in order to stay engaged and connected with your groups. At this time Skool Kompanion does not support Android, and notifications do not support chat. These are things I may look at in the future depending on support and feedback. So please try it, and let me know if you have feedback.

    I made a free community for people to optimize their health skills and thrive on a plant-based lifestyle!! - Plant-Based Optimizers (skool.com)

Last month the engagement in our FREE community was dropping off a cliff ... despite sending welcome messages, tagging new members, giving away prizes and releasing new mini courses at the start of the month. Initially our plan was to load up all of our best free resources and trainings into the classroom tab but it was getting disorganized and although members said there was so much value... they really weren't engaging with it. So I decided to simplify. I unpublished all of the content and turned it into a 14 day challenge. - Releasing 1 new challenge each day. - inviting members to post their work underneath the video... ... which then shows up in the community and people are connecting and commenting on each others posts in an entirely new way. Our new "challenge" welcome post got more engagement in 1 week than our previous welcome post did after 6 months. Making the transition from facebook groups as a funnel to a community funnel using skool has been a challenge but it's starting to pay off and the community is loving it. Anyways thought I'd share a win and something that has been working in our community that might help you in yours :)

    @Jesse Clark ah thats super unfortunate - would have loved to be able to use my current group and get access to the wetube self study - is there any way to avoid having to create a new one?

I've recently migrated my FB group to skool, but given how its a platform that many people don't use atm compared to FB or IG, I'm having trouble getting users to check their DMs more frequently (this is how I get calls booked - via conversations). Outside of hounding their emails with reminders, do you guys have any ideas of how you can make people who join your group come back more often? Thanks! @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

    @Josh Gavin are you experiencing something similar?

  • 0 likes • 12d

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe current methods Im using: - tagging members in posts - sending weekly broadcasts for value posts - sending initial DMs + follow ups - sending 2-3 emails to make them check their DMs

Are there any plans for a Skool app? We're getting low engagement on our community (most people invited haven't been on since joining). The feedback we got was that if there was an app they'd be much more likely to visit regularly and engage.

    @Oliver El-Gorr any version for this on Android? Looks like it's only on iOS :(

Hey guys! As many of your know, I have a free Skool community. I started the community with zero intention of monetisation. I genuinely wanted to bring together 'my people'. But recently I launched an offer and... ... Drumroll please ... I made $100,000 in 10 days! With zero employees. And with only $99 in expenses (yes, Skool is my only expense apart from Stripe). From only one simple post. Would you guys be interested if I made a free course sharing how I did it? I could share: - Is a Free Group Funnel right for you? - How to START a free group funnel - How to FILL a free group funnel - How to MONETISE a free group funnel Comment a money related GIF if you'd be interested, so that I know who to send it to!

People get tremendous value by being able to search for information on YouTube and Google. But Skool can be more powerful than this with transcripts, giving potential students more incentive to invest in a skool education business. It should have a "power search mode" for instance google has option for "Verbetam" It should pull up results that have same keywords as search but with different phrasing & word order Sometimes I will search something and it gives no results, but it should. For instance, if you search the member's first name along with something they said in a comment, it will not show the comment. Or if you search two words that are in a community post, it will not pull up the result if those two words have other words between them.

If your group is public and members invite other people - do new members have to answer your membership questions? Or do they bypass this? Since I want this group to be tailored to the right people, I don't want anyone skipping the membership questions. Thanks!

Is it currently possible to restrict access to courses only to specific members or groups of members? Or would that require having a second skool?

Sometimes you need to express a feeling, but words alone can’t quite do it. Now you can add GIFs to Posts, Comments, Replies, and Chats! Just click the GIF button, type your keyword, find the perfect GIF, and it will attach to the post or comment you are writing. Comment below with a GIF! Thanks team! 🙌

I find myself using the screenshot/snipping tool often when making posts in my community, but find that I can't paste them like I would in FB or Workplace - in Skool you have to attach files (which requires saving each screenshot/snip). Is there a way to avoid doing this each time?

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe so the drag and drop work well with images on google/websites. But if you use the snip tool on windows or have an image in your clipboard, you're not able to past it

General Discussions feed being captions and preview only makes the portal really lean. Less distractions, I agree with that. When it comes to Celebrations, however, I thought having a more visual feed (only for Celebrations feed) may create more engagement & fun as celebrations are more fun when people were sharing their videos, fun pictures etc for motivation. Have you considered making Celebrations feed more visual, e.g allowing photos or videos in the preview? @Sam Ovens

    @Nick Guadagnoli all good thanks!

Is it possible to zoom in using pinch gestures when looking at photos from a post on your phone? A lot of times clients are unable to see the text in some screenshots for example for this reason, without having to download the photo and then viewing it on an external photo viewer. (On desktop this is easy to do)

Is anyone else noticing a big decline in FB group engagement this year? It's impacting the 'warmth' of my leads and making it increasingly difficult to sell to. Debating whether or not to move leads to another place to nurture before bringing them into a paid skool community group. How is everyone else nurturing their leads?

    @Ted Carr that's with the assumption that you can add all the members in your group right? For leads coming from ads, messaging them doesn't notify them. How do you get around this?

    @Italo Campilii Helping people master their health - gut health, movement, sleep, habits, energy...etc. Its a highly value based group - I hardly ever pitch, but the engagement is pretty poor. By paid ads, do you mean youtube ads?

Has anyone used Skool for online fitness masterminds? I'm currently using Clickfunnels to host my course material and then Workplace by Meta for the community aspect. Love to hear your thoughts/experiences

    @Rich Talyor-Wellington cheers man good to meet as well - only thing I'm on the fence about is DM notifications. Workplace at the moment has the ability to chat via its dedicated app - great to send gifs, reactions, files...etc. But workplace can get pricy as the users increase

What happens when you follow someone? Do you get notification when they post? Do you get emails? How does it work?

This is GREAT. I was praying to find a platform that I could do courses and community all in one. Do you guys find that Kajabi is still a better platform for content and courses? This one seems pretty basic etc. Appreciate any feedback 🙏

    From my experience, people just want to watch each video once, so as long as you organize your vids in a way that can be easily consumed and then applied practically, then youre good - skool does this just fine

Given how this platform is accessed via an internet browser, is there any way to notify people/get notified about DMs without directly checking the website? Are emails sent for every message?

    @Dennis Kraus gotcha thanks - no way to get notified offline without email though correct?

This is one of the best thing created by Sam and his team but it would be great if this thing gets converted Into an app. I have added direct link to my smartphone homepage, which mimicks like an app. Simple and easy.
