If you could wave a magic wand and add one feature to Skool, what would it be?

On the left is how I setup the calendar in Skool On the right is how it shows for one of our Skool Course customers. Calls are supposed to be every Thursday. I think there's a disconnect between her days and dates in the calendar. Please help, so this doesn't enforce a refund. Thanks.

    @Jordan Schwann The events are shown in their local timezone. It says 6 pm London time. What's your time zone?

Hello - quick question on reports. We have a few members, and they are at different progress levels w.r.t. the courses we have uploaded. Is there a way to get a summary report of all the members and the progress they have made? I can go to individual members' profile, I can see their progress, but haven't figured out a summary report where I can see that information for all members at a glance. If no such feature exists, may I please request that we put this on the list for request for new features? THANK YOU!

Hey @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Quick one - if you turn off the 'who can message me' in the inbox for multiple Skool groups, do you lose the entire chat history? We'd like to ideally: - Turn off the chat available to our primary nutritionist - Direct those questions to another practitioner - Create a transition from turning off chat box practitioner 1 and send an automated response to direct their questions to practitioner 2 Thank you!

@Sid Sahasrabuddhe if I turn off Chat for a group and then I initiate a chat with a member of the group, can that member respond back to me at that point? Or are they blocked from responding even though I can DM them?

    @Harry Whelchel You can block them. What are you trying to do? 😅

    @Harry Whelchel Yea of course it is. It's called Chats! And, we also use HS. Entirely different product with its own use case 😀

I'd love to be able to add a header image to the top of modules. Right now the only visual we can add is a video thumbnail if w upload a video. But for certain modules we have no video, and without any image at the top it looks & feels kinda lame... Just my 2 cents :) Would also love: • Ability to set 'drip' on SETS not just modules • Drag & drop module re organization • Ability to turn off progress tracker for certain sets

    @Ted Carr Lame, lol. OK, noted. We'll see what other admins have to say about it. A few admins preferred this way because the differentiation between the type of module is apparent and intuitive - video lessons vs non-video lessons/resources. We don't want group members clicking on the image thinking it's a video, since they would be in a habit to do so. Drip set answered here. Yea, I could see the drag & drop module being super helpful for course organization 🤝 If there's a content piece that needs to be left out of the Classroom Progress, then the recommended way is to create an admin-only category and post it in the Community. Having said that, we have this one noted down.

    @Jeremy Mary Not soon, but we do want to do it. We have a few things that we are currently working on.

I just signed up and im still within the 14 day trial, but I like what im seeing and already referred a friend. he used my referral link , but i don't see anything under my referral when i used it. when i checked the link i see that it just says https://www.skool.com/refer instead of the tracking code. How do i know that im getting credit for this person?

    @Vlad Tayman Reaching out to you on Skool Chat.

Question for expert community leaders: How do you advertise your Skool on Twitter without sending an invite? What I want to do: - Plug school instead of an email list at the end of my Twitter thread - Have applicants fill out a survey - Contact the best-suited individuals Would you just do this with Google forms or ConvertKit, or is it possible to do this 100% on Skool? Thank you, Connor

    I know two Twitter power users @Andrew Kirby and @Aadit Sheth. Not sure if they funnel the Twitter traffic to their respective Skool groups though. But, they may have some feedback for you. Should be possible with Skool - I'd highly recommend turning on Membership Questions for your Skool group. SETTINGS > Plugin > Membership Questions :)

    @Connor Widmaier You can.

Hi guys, I assume from what I have heard there is no easy way to transition a large, already-made course into Skool classroom. It has to be done manually one by one correct? I have a potential client on Teachable, I have to sell them on moving to Skool :)

    @Danny Mallinder It kinda depends a lot on the use case. If someone is starting from scratch, they would just build it on Skool. If they are switching and already have content hosted on the content platforms that Skool supports, then they are copy-pasting the embedded links. If you are switching from another platform where the content is hosted, that would need some admin work. So, unfortunately, we can't make a feature for this because there are too many variables with a lot of 3rd party tools. We also have a customer base where they are not using Classroom at all. They are using Community and Calendar. For them, the switch is easy. In your specific use case, yes, just do it manually. As @Saqib Rasool & @Ted Carr mentioned. Either get a team member to do it or get a VA. Should be fast. And here's a quick help doc for reference, and here's a help doc for a content hosting platform.

Some of my members are getting confusing / complaining that the GIF button is no longer available for them when in reality it's just not available when posting under lessons. I don't want to provide an incentive for them not to post under lessons and it seems like this UI could be consistent for all locations where you can create a post?

    @Harry Whelchel Lolol, no. We'll see though. Thanks!

I think it would be great if we could add a list of negative keywords. If any posts contain these keywords, the post would be flagged and to be approved by admin.

    @Eli Richardson Hey Eli, I was actually testing this feature on other platforms. I saw how Facebook Groups does it. Do you know of any other platforms? And, is there a specific use case that happened in your Skool group?

  • 0 likes • 9h

    @Eli Richardson Got it, yea!

Would the Skool creators be open to making the Skool road map public so we can all see what is on the map and give input.

Hi I really like Skool and I am thinking about creating my own paid or free group. BUT one thing that I am concerned about is how easy it is for my customers to leave and end up here instead :) Instead of focusing on the course and upgrade to other courses. I mean if I pay $99/m do I get to select what will be shown in the navigation to my paying customers or free group members?

    @Jonas Carlström When you mean "easy for my customers to leave and end up here", what do you mean by that? End up where?

  • 3 likes • 11h

    @Jonas Carlström They will not see Skool Community. This group is only for potential group admins and current group admins. Your Skool group members are YOUR group members :)

Can we get bold text as an option in posts and descriptions? (CRL+B)

    @Adam Zalewski We have this one noted down. We actually did support the Rich Text Editing feature. We removed it since we saw it wasn't actively used as we wanted. We do want to bring it back, and is on our roadmap. We would probably start with the Classroom though! 😀

  • 0 likes • 11h

    @Shane Dutka Yea, if we do introduce it, we'd probably do it in Classroom. The last time we did it in the Community, we saw members overusing it. A lot of markdowns slow down the speed of reading and therefore comprehension. That's why pretty much all books have one font size and type for the majority of the book. Anyway, we are still thinking about this. Let's see...

Would love to white-label Skool

    @Philipp Rauscher To delete their contributions, search the member and visit their profile. See if they have contributions, and delete them. Then, you can remove them.

I'm still figuring out settings for my skool group (calendar, course access etc). I'd love to see from the perspective of members what they're seeing and if something has to be changed. Is there a way?

    @Aadit Sheth Yep, what Aljaž said! Pretty much all group admins do this to test. Invite yourself with another email address of yours. Join in an incognito tab or on another browser. Test everything that you want to test. Leave or remove :)

Hi, I love skool, but it makes my texting, frasing more difficult if I can not use @Sam Owen hashtags in the middle of the sentences. I think, it would help communication and use if the taging would be improved. Thanks!

Hi team, I've just "evicted" one of my students out of the Big Brother house ... (my group) The only thing is, their posts and comments still remain everywhere in the group. Is there a way (apart from manually deleting them all) for them to be deleted once the person is banned? There must be "some" way? Thanks heaps! David Cavanagh

    @David Cavanagh You can visit their Skool profile, and delete their contributions manually. Then remove them. That's the current way to remove a member and delete their contributions from your group.

  • 0 likes • 12h

    @David Cavanagh @Ted Carr It works differently on Skool. We have contributions, daily activity, points, and leaderboards which are an integral part of the product. We preserve that so that they can resume if/when they are invited back to the group. Still noting it down to see what we can do there :)

Would love to have these features on skool - page builder/editor - native video upload inside the platform - own domain name - assessments(i.e quizzes) I came from teachable and now on thinkific and would love to move over here when ready. 😎

Quick question - when people join our Skool community, does it automatically capture their email address they use to sign up with? Or do we need to have them opt in via a funnel or set that as a membership question if we want that info? Thanks!

    @Sema Robbins It does not automatically capture. You'd need to ask them a question regarding that if they are joining from the group URL. If they are invited, well, you already have the email list. And the best place to download the list would be from your payment processor if you are using one.

This would allow more efficient way for students to publish video. Would also make adding content to classroom more efficient. And adding auto-transcription for all classroom videos would be gamechanger for course content, employee training, q&a calls etc.

    @Aaron Resendiz No timeline at the moment. This can be a potential solution, although it may not work for you, considering your use case.

Many times I wish there was a group chat function like in Slack where I can add two or more people into a group chat.

Here's the recording from yesterday's call. We covered: • Now you can invite people with course access privileges via email, CSV, and Zapier • Zapier can be used to invite members to your group + unlock courses for members in the group • Course access panel is much easier to see/use now • @Andrew Kirby's new mini-course "Free Group Funnels" is live • We launched a new podcast where we hang out with creators in this space Check out the recording to see how you can use these features and resources. Enjoy! Want to attend the next Office Hours live with us? See when it's happening on our calendar here

    @Genc Doda Yea, if member A invites member B, member B will be in your Admin Duties to be approved or declined, or also to chat with. And there it will say "Invited by Member A".

Is it possible to allow access to course content only if they have a profile photo and bio

    @Aadit Sheth They usually have profile pics and/or bios. It's the "group effect". Even if they enter without a profile pic/bio, they will see everyone else has them and they will update. Right now, a course can be locked by two conditions: 1. Only some members have access - you manually grant or revoke access. 2. Level locked - a course unlocks when they reach a specific level. But I kinda see what you mean specifically with the profile pic and bio. It's nice to have those whilst engaging with someone. After all, it's a community!

This will help elimite need to keep Kajabi/ActiveCampaign for client updates because every 3 days is kinda limiting. Thanks. Bilal.

    @Bilal Malas If you post in your group as an admin, ALL your group members are notified anyway. Email Broadcasts are reserved mostly for very important announcement stuff. And also to prevent group admins from sending too many emails. Twice a week seems to be balanced, at the moment.

    @Justin Garcia Yea, the open rates and deliverability are extremely good, at the moment. So I'm not sure if we should meddle with it 😅

it will easier to find posts that you want to go back to in the future.

    @Jose Castro Not at the moment. API calls/scripts will introduce complexity in the product which would need further testing and maintenance resources, which we frown upon. It's not off the table, but it's more like, not right now.
