Hello, is there a way to quickly merge content from different courses into one course?

A few questions... 1.) Last I heard, Skool has a webhook that allows you to *add* people to a Community. Is there also one to *remove* people? 2.) Also, any plans to have a Zapier app? If so, it would be great to have the following triggers/actions: Triggers: - New Member Added - Member Removed - Marked a Video as Complete (so you can trigger an automation in your email autoresponder or add a tag to them) Actions: - Add a Member to a Community - Remove a Member from a Community - Grant Access to a Course (in the Classroom) - Revoke Access to a Course (in the Classroom) - Send Direct Message (for onboarding or for encouragement, triggered by something else that happened) The "grant/revoke" access to a course assumes you can have more than one course in the Classroom (I haven't verified this yet, but have another post about it here). Thanks! 🙌

    A lot can be achieved with additional triggers, i agree. New member added & Add a Member to a Community, would be so useful!

I've got pending invites in pending invite list although people already joined a group.

I cannot see a way that it makes sense (for me) to use Skool within my paid product currently. I am working on the idea... But I am wondering if it would be a WAY better experience than FB for my FREE gateway group. There are obvious benefits of using Skool but also obvious downsides (such as FB working because peeps are there anyway, organic growth, potential and easy advertising etc). I am wondering, has anyone made this switch and, if so, what was your experience and what were your results?

    Why don't you see sense to use Skool for your paid products? I kept my free group on FB and completely moved to Skool for my paid product. My clients deserve healthy environment, everything in one place, one user account and no ads and distractions. And I deserve to feel good when i visit my product, so i can work on it more instead of visiting FB to do that.

Is it possible to make a backup of Skool community and classroom?

    @Nick Guadagnoli sorry for not answering to your question. I don't care so much about Classroom, i have all the videos and action files backed up. But I would love to see a copy of community interactions on my hard drive or backed up on google drive too. Copy that i can open via browser and is not dependant on Skool.

Classroom is a lightweight content portal for online courses. Create modules, embed videos, add resources, transcripts, and track student progress. Classroom integrates with your Skool community, so your students will have 1-login, 1-profile, and 1-search — for everything. Totally free. Watch the video below to see how it works. Enjoy!

    @Nick Guadagnoli there is also situation where we have vip users (q&a, community, complete course) but we also sell low ticket individual courses.

    Thank you so much. Everything in one place from now on. Jumping up and down! :D Thanks!!!

Hey Skool developers, I have two school groups. Lets call them "basic" and "growth". When a new member joins the growth, he gets a free bonus membership to the basic. I have a bit of a confusion with onboarding new members to my service or better said, members are confused as they get two invite emails at the same time and usually they only accept one. I try to fix that with sending out invite for the basic two days later so they at least get to the main thing they paid for (growth group). It would be amazing if people can somehow automatically become members of the "basic" group as soon as they join the main "growth" group that they paid for. or.... getting the invite to the basic groups only after they already join the uplevel. Btw, how do you at Consulting manage this?

Hey team! Group admins have told us they'd like to see more "engagement" and "life" in their groups. Previously, we sorted the feed by the newest post. The problem was, more people comment than post, so most of the "engagement" was happening at the comment level, and nobody could see it from the feed. This made the group feel kind of "dead". Now we sort by "recent activity" as the new default. If somebody comments on a post, it brings that post back to the top of the feed. We added some blue text to indicate when the latest comment was, and if you read it, the text changes to gray. This way, the group feels much more "alive" and "engaged". Oh yeah, and if an admin awards a "Gem" to a post/comment, that will bring that post back to the top of the feed — this makes gems more useful. Try out the new sort method in the groups you're in, and let us know what you think?

    Yes, yes, yes! I requested this a while back, but forgot about it. Thank you so much, much appreciated!

Thanks for more categories! :) Is interface permanetly without categoreis on the side? That was useful for me at least. Thanks for all the work!

    @Nick Guadagnoli thanks for the answer. If i may share my experience with new layout a bit further... Not having categories on sight all the time presents less structural accessability for my group. Yes Skool is meant to be a discussion place, but i also use it as a resource base. It's much easier for members to find data through categories. Also posting new posts is based around categories so everything is really clear and easy to find. With new layout i'm sadly back to FB group with wall feed as a back bone. Having categories visible at all times was the best thing ever for navigation and accessibility. I hope you know this is not a complaint, thanks for all the work to everybody who is working on Skool. But please let me know if there is a way to have categories visible on side as before. As an option in settings or somehow.

    It's great. Font size is great, popup function is intuitive, it just works. Almost can't remember how was the last interface. It's like there was no transition. The only thing noticable and creates friction is "Jump to latest comment" banner. Sometimes when a post is longer i'm in situation seen on picture below. The only way to see what i'm typing is to scroll down. On Macbook this is simple, on desktop you need to reach for mouse. On mobile is very intuitive.

Would be a great feature if we can build a public community but have protected categories for paid members.

    @Nick Guadagnoli some thoughts from me. I have one product, but there are VIP members in it. I'm sending VIP members notifications about q&a via email. The nature of my service is such that I need to collect questions in advance so i can prepare, collect pictures etc. I was thinking it would be great to have private category in the group for q&a calls. I could collect all questions and pictures in a group itself, no more email communication for me, everything in one place. But of course not all members could see the category, only VIP members.

I would really like to eventually get a school page for my own course. Especially now that the new Facebook sucks. Any ETA when we can use skool for our own businesses?

    Hey @Nick Guadagnoli. I think i was one of the first to apply when we got invitation to Skool from Sam. I hope my application was submitted correctly. Can you please let me know if my application is in the queue?

Is it possible? I just wanted to create a post with all q&a recordings. I wondered how to batch insert hashtags for all modules. Or just link to the whole course or sets.

    @Nick Guadagnoli yes exactly. I have a q&a course. I organize q&a recordings based on seasons (spring 2021, summer 2021,...). I use sets for this. Individual recording is a module. I wish to create a post or comment and use the #reference to point members to this course or sets within the course, not just modules.

    @Nick Guadagnoli thank you!

Is sorting function final or are you still collecting feedback and working on it? There is a bit of confusion between new unactive posts (already read by a user) and older active posts with new activity. Everytime users visit a group they change sorting to Recent activity, as they are mostly interested in new activity. Does recent activity includes new unread posts? In my opinion, two most useful sorting options to keep up with posts and debate are "New unread posts and activity" and "New unread activity in YOUR posts/debate" Sorry if i'm completley off or to late.

    @Nick Guadagnoli thanks. Is there a way where i can set Recent activity as a default sorting option?

I just love Categories option. It's making my group so much more effective, simple to use and above all structured into topics. I would need 5 more categories and the structure is complete! Would you be willing to raise the limit of categories above 10 or is it going to stay like this?

    Hey Skool development team. Sorry to bother with this, but i would like some feedback on this. I need to make some decisions for group structure. Thank you! @Nick Guadagnoli

    @Nick Guadagnoli Thanks!

Hello, today as i was replying to my students in one of the topics i found myself trying to quote parts of the message that i was replying to. And also trying to use bold font option. I was using these two a lot when i was part of a gardening forum back in the days. Just wondering if Skool is considering BBCode? Maybe it was already considered but decided not to include? Is it even possible to include?

    @Nick Guadagnoli, not really. Often messages contain two or three questions about something. It's about being extra clear which part my answers are about. Example from this debate: Nick said: "BBCode and other formatting options can certainly be helpful, but we've noticed they can also lead to a messy appearance if not used correctly." I completely agree. Although i would probably use it a lot, I will not really miss this option. Skool is great already without bbcode. :) Thanks for your answer.

Not sure if it's a bug or is intentional so here are the videos showing what's happening on laptop when searching and applying modules in new classroom post.

I wonder how i should go with inviting new members to my Skool groups. I have two groups for two different courses, let say their name is group1 and group2. People who buy group2 course also get access to group1 course. When i send out invitations, members make Skool account and are automaticaly added to the group2. All this is done via webhook. What about access to group1? I need to send out another invite for group1 or is there another way? Thanks for the help.

This is where Skool users come together to suggest features, report bugs, and share feedback. We're co-creating Skool with our users (you). So when something frustrates you, seems confusing, broken, missing, or not right, tell us so we can fix it! What is Skool? Skool is a platform for creating "Learning communities". Think of them as Facebook groups, but better. No ads, distractions, self-promotion, privacy concerns, endless notifications, misinformation, and political drivel. Skool's got killer search, it's fast, fun, and optimized for learning. It's totally free, forever. How do you get started? 1. Create a Skool account by clicking the "Join Group" button. 2. Request membership for our groups: Consulting Accelerator and Skool Beta this. 3. Try the platform for yourself! Try posting something, commenting, voting, searching, etc. 4. Share your honest feedback here in this community! Let's build this thing together!

    I really can't wait to start using skool for my students. I am in dire need for a platform like this! Thank you Sam for making this happen.

I was just watching Sam's new video on Chat. I'm on Chrome with normal settings on 100% and when i play a video, I can't scroll down when i want to reach the controls for video playback (for example if i want to go to a certain minute). If i zoom out video is smaller and controls are reachable.

    Chrome: Font size - Medium (Recommended) Page Zoom - 100% Windows: Resolution - 1920 x 1080 Size of text, apps and other - 125% (Recommended) When i'm on above settings, video controls are not visible and can't be used. If i change windows settings to 100% or Chrome down to 80%, whole video with controls is nicely positioned and visible.

One strange appearance on mobile. On Course level, when i tap on Overview, it links to a cover page with description.

    @Trevor Dowds sorry, just used to laptop where overview is always there and it felt wierd on mobile for the first time.

  • 0 likes • Jun '21

    @Trevor Dowds ok. Well i’m not sure if overview is even necessary on mobile. Especialy if it needs to be linked to a seperate page. We all like to click on words, links etc. It feels like i’m not getting value from the overview page and link was a distraction from diving into the course. On a course level, i would like to feel more at home - maybe headline, small picture and short description right away when clicking on a desired course. Content below is already very easy to find through sets and modules, so its an overview in itself. Its hard to write above things, when skool is already amazing. Thanks again for the work.

Not working for me. See the attached video. Thanks!

    @Sam Ovens, yes, it works! Thanks for fast response and fix. All the best to you Sam and your team.

I noticed that three dots with post options are not visible all the time, but only when i point on a post itself. Personally i would like them to be visible all the time. I guess it's a visual habit from Facebook.

In my latest post about mouse pointers i attached a very small image. Preview is completely white. How do previews work?

To open images or videos inside of a post, regular mouse pointer changes to zoom pointer. Why not change zoom pointer to a hand pointer commonly used for links, videos etc? The first time i wanted to opened a video i was like, wow, hmm, ok... Well, lets click on it. :)
