Post and comments
To bring order to the chaos of groups, we've introduced two new features: Rules and Categories. Together, they act as "guide rails" for coherent discussion, and accurate member expectations. Rules — Rules set expectations and let members know what's accepted and unaccepted. Groups can have up to 10 rules and you can see them at any time by clicking the "2 Rules" in group info box. (see the 1st screenshot below). Categories — Categories set topics for discussion letting members know what to talk about and where to do it. Categories are visible at all times in the left hand column. To see a more detailed description of categories, click "Categories" in the left hand column. (see 2nd screenshot below).
I made this fun little video today. It explains what Skool is in 2 minutes. Check it out!
Is this possible for Skool Group Owner to put a banner like thisin our group so we can choose a call to Action for our group members ?
thanks @Sid Sahasrabuddhe, i think the sideways banner is more appropriate than the "pinned post' for my usecase. I already use the pinpost as a "Welcome post". The sideway banner would be appropriate for a CTA.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe upsell for a new course
We're thinking of doing a sick Black Friday deal. The craziest Black Friday deal we've ever done. Interested? Give me a sick GIF in the comments below if you want a sick deal.
am I gonna have notifications like this until november 25th ? 🤣
It would be nice to have Skool be available in multiple languages including French.
@Dennis Kraus the english market is so big it's not a top priority for them but i'm confident Sam & his team will keep improving the product and add other languages, specially if a lot of people keep asking
translation is not necessary for me but more changing the language of the settings and letting users decide which languages they want to use.
Hey all. I've started using Skool as a front-end marketing group instead of a back-end product group. Is anyone else doing this? Attached is the model I'm using. The key differences to the model most in here use: - No ads - No direct outreach - No sales tactics - No content treadmill - Focus on audience building (specifically YouTube) - Focus on community - Using Skool as a marketing community, not product community I ran the new model past Sam and he said he liked it! I also asked for permission to post this here and he said yes. I think this new model is a game-changer for getting to $100k/m profit. I know it's quite difficult to get the full picture from the image, so if you need more info then just comment "Loom" and I'll send you a Loom fully explaining the model. Hope it helps.
Even though most people naturally speak English or at least understand it sufficiently, it would be a sign of inclusion if the few English-language terms (frontend) could be translated into the respective local language - here I'm only talking about what happens in the frontend. In the backend, most users should be able to cope well with English, but if my customers are e.g. German craftsmen, some unfortunately find it overwhelming to be confronted with the English language in the frontend. To avoid having to translate countless languages (in my case, of course, I vote for German), it would be advantageous to let the group owner do the translation himself in the settings. This way, the translation could be adjusted precisely. Additionally, it could be an enormous help to be able to export/import the translations made in the settings themselves - in the form of a language file. This way, the work would not have to be done over and over again and the translations themselves would be a community effort - similar to the contributions in Wikipedia. One could also reward such translation contributions with receiving a gem or similar. The Skool developers would then practically "only" have to implement the translation option for the individual terms and phrases in the settings and, if possible, create the option to export/import the language file. If there was an export/import function for the language file, the selection of categories (user feedback, bug reports, feature requests) could be supplemented by the category "language files" to make the own translation available to the community in a central place.
Would love to white-label Skool
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe when you said "have this one noted down". Does it mean, "we gonna do it but we don't know when" or does it mean "we don't know yet if we gonna do it" Sorry if my question is dumb but english is not my first language. Thanks guys.

I just want to let know the Skool team, that @Sid Sahasrabuddhe is always overdelivering, helping me in the chat with my questions and he is so fucking fast. The customer service @ Skool is insane and i think I never experienced this level of customer service.. (maybe amazon when you are not happy with a product and they don't ask any questions ahaha) Thanks a lot Sid
Which categories do you recommend to create as the best practice on Skool ? Q&A Replay, what else ?
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.
A while ago, I optimised to grow the number of members in my community. This was a mistake. Quality of discussion dropped. The core members of my community left and started a group chat. The community started to suck. So now I'm rejecting 95%+ of people who apply to join the community. And focusing on quality again. The quality of your audience matters a lot more than the size of your audience Was prompted to share this when I saw the results of @Blake La Grange's poll.
Hey Guys, I switched to skool 2 months ago in the hope that I will have a more engaged & interactive community. But it’s not going as planned. Even my fb group was more engaged than the skool community. I don’t know why? Even if we are giving books as rewards + I’m sharing some valuable content too but still don’t know what’s happening. I’m personally loving this platform & was so much excited to launch but my clients are not much excited about it. When we took a feedback from them, they don’t feel anything special about it. @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Hauser Please suggest me some way to re-activate my community & boost the engagement.
@Delphine Sikler 9 points pour apporter de la valeur dans la communauté skool, tu peux les noter please :)
Here's the recording from today's call. We covered new features (membership questions, Zapier integration, ability to view/search members emails, and social links on users profiles. Lot's of exciting stuff to help you use Skool as a "group funnel" to get customers for your paid courses/communities. We covered a lot of best practices too. If you want to know how to use Skool to get customers, build community, and run a successful business — this recording is for you! Want to attend the next Office Hours live with us? See when it's happening on our calendar here
do you plan to let the user choose which language he wants skool ?
thks. yes they do understand some english but it's not ideal. specially when you sell a high ticket program and you tell them the platform is not even in their native language
Any predictions for what it'll be? My guess: an annual option, 20-30% off.
@Leah Davis it would not be a sick offer since all random software offer 2 month discount + some bonus when you suscribe annually
when is black friday ?
can someone explain to me the value of displaying if someone have : 0% complete, or 20% complete.. Since a lot of students watch the course and just don't click on "Mark as Done" ? What other way than the "mark as done" could be more efficient ?
It would be a good idea to have a FAQ so people can see frequently asked questions on skool 😊 What do you think ?
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe awesome, do you remember who ? I would like to check out to inspire me
@Sam Ovens I don't know if you're planning on building it but in my opinon the white-label part is huge for us, creators, cause we want to be able to brand our community
@Natu Myers yeees he's a boss, that's why i want Skool cause i trust the founder so much and know he'll think always long term (like Jeff Bezos does) and what's be for our students
One thing I would LOVE to have on my Skool member area is the possibility to add a customed banner as you did to let us know "SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE" My usecase would be : "Give your testimonial and get 1-1 session with Founder" "Check out now the new lesson in your Module N°3" It would be so helpful for us to have the possibility to put Strong CTA for our community. What do you think ?
i'm not sure it would work since i already use my pinned post as a "Welcome Post" but i would like to have CTA like "Leave a Review" "Download our New Masterclass" etc..
@Ted Carr thanks man
It's very confusing that you call Sets and Modules in Classroom because i just feel it's not natural. It's like calling a green light an orange light.. I think a much better option would be : SETS = MODULES MODULES = LESSONS What do you guys think ?
Right now we can only unlock courses on Skool... but what if we could also unlock Calendar events and Community categories? I think this would make leveling up a lot funner. Would make us feel like we're unlock new, and potentially unexplored areas of a map :)

if i want someone to not have access to some course, where do i click ? i remember you just had to click on the member, and give or remove them access. But now i don't know where it is now
thanks @Sid Sahasrabuddhe i don't see the three dots menu anymore..
thank you very much
people are on their phone 95% of their time.. An app with notifications would increase incredibly the engagement on all our Skool groups.. I don't know if you working on it, but in my opinion it's a top priority to improve the product what do you think ?

do we have the option to show or hide courses to people that don't have access to the course ?
Paste image without uploading it as a file
I explain my request, I want to give access to ressources to some members of my teams (setter,closers). I tried Notion and Google Drive but i wonder if i could manage everything from Skool. For example i would to create a new course calle "Team Members" and have one module for "Closers", one module for "Setters", one module for "Community manager". Is it possible and what do you think is the best way to organize it ? thaks a lot
thanks @Sid Sahasrabuddhe i'm curious. How do you guys organize ressources for the team at Skool.com & Consulting.com ?
Now you can earn 40% of monthly recurring revenue by referring people to Skool. Refer 3 people and Skool becomes an income stream, not a cost. Watch the video below to see how it works. How to refer people: Go to "User settings" --> "Referrals" tab --> Copy/paste your referral link --> Done! Note: You can only refer people if you've got a paid group on Skool. Check it out and let us know what you think? 💰💰💰
awesome feature and i love the 40%. Our referalls stil get 14 days trial, right ?
40% comission is great and I'm gratefull for that, but maybe people who use our affiliate links should get 1 or 2 months free trial (like @Ted Carr said) instead of 14 days free trial, so they have a real advantage and a reason to use our link. @Taylor Benterud @Raj Dash in my opinion, letting us choose the comission structure make the product more complicated, @Sam Ovens don't want that, and it's not essential
Is it possible to post automatically in the community when I Upload a new video in the classroom ?
