Ability to schedule posts (I'M DYING FOR THIS), imagine if active campaign didn't have this feature. Make a percentage of the community/classroom only visible to members who have contributed recently so they get an immediate reward for giving.
@Shana Lynn Just posts that bring value to the community. Keeping it engaged. It might be 11pm at night that I find time to write the post but need to schedule it to drop in the morning. Or maybe I'm on a roll and create two posts but would rather them drip out over time.
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.
@Sam Ovens I think stripe checkout can do most of what we need but would be nice to automate the process of removing and adding members based on payment. Web hook shit seems complicated. Also having the option to enable PayPal + credit card on one page would be useful for overseas cistomers. and it’s always nice to have everything in one place. Also I’m not sure if stripe checkout allows installments?
This is super important for the DM funnel to schedule sales appointments. Because they might not remember to reply to your first message and it looks super needy to keep sending them follow-up messages when they haven't responded. For example in the free group they might not recognize Skool notificaitons in their email and it might take several DM's to get a response. So we need the ability to delete past DM's and send a fresh one. This is why email newsletters work really great because they don't see your past emails unless they search for them.
@Saqib Rasool You would have to chose when it is appropriate to edit and delete a message. And most of us are in a different position than Sam. Most platforms have the ability to edit (messenger, Skype, comments, etc) I strongly disagree and think it would be absurd to leave skool because of this helpful feature - most platforms have this feature.
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.
Hey team, we are looking at adding automated subscriptions (monthly payments) as one of our offers. We would like to add Skool as the manager of this however with the payment portal being seperate in past experience it has frustrated users. I know how to connect Thrivecart for one off payments but would love a native integration of sorts. Is something like this in the works?
Action items that students can check off and admins can see which action items students have completed. Similar to how we can see course progress. It also helps remind me where each student is at to know where I left off.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Right.. "Mark as done" keeps track of what videos they've watched. I think this should be changed to an automatic watch progress bar or automated status (not started, watching, done), because people forget to press and everyone thinks that everyone else is not watching the course which makes it look bad. Action Items keep track of what actions they have completed. There would be a checkbox beside multiple action items in a single module
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
People don't have the motivation to take time out of their day to post in the community and give rather than just take. I wish there were a feature where 25% of the posts and or course content are hidden with a message saying: "Please contribute to the community to unlock access these posts" So if they make 2-5 contributions to the community in the past week then they can see hidden content/posts. In my opinion, the leaderboards & levels incentive helps a little but is not an immediate & powerful incentive.
Would also be useful to make a post feature where only members who have commented/contributed can see the resource. Incentivizing teamwork that benefits everyone in the community. This feature would serve a similar purpose as the Classroom locked course. But potentially more effective since teamwork rewards would be more instant. And wouldn't expire once the student gets the reward. In tight niche communities, there can be an aversion to teamwork because of competition & they feel a burden to contribute when their incentive is altruistic giving.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Another thing to understand is with high-ticket masterminds, the groups may be fairly small. In my niche, I think people don't want to post in there because they are just helping their competition and wasting time because there is no selfish benefit for contributing. This feature would give them in instant reward based on how much they contribute. I also have a free group of 150 people that are less familiar with my brand who don't really benefit much from contributing. In order to keep things engaged I have to invest time and effort away from other aspects of my business.
Is Loom a good option to host training videos? I like Loom for screen recording and pay for it any way so would be good if I use it to host my content rather than paying extra for Vimeo Wistia. However Im obviously just looking for the best option. Anyone have any insight? Cheers
@Frank Kern One problem with loom is sometimes it won't play in the classroom until you refresh - which students may not know that trick and wait 5 minutes and get angry. I'm using loom for all my classroom content currently
Another use case is when you write a post before the email broadcast feature has reached 72 hours. So you have to wait to post it. Another solution would be to save the draft posts the same way Gmail has unfinished draft emails.
I think it would be better if you could customize the amount of time the reminder happens before the calendar event. I think 24 hour gap is too big, they forget. Also, SMS notifications would make Skool way more powerful. For example, sending them a SMS notification 10 minutes before the event starts. (If they chose to receive SMS reminders)
I want to be able to control how much of my premium private course people can see. For instance: 1 - they can see the outlines of the course modules only 2 - they can see community posts but blurred 3 - they can't see anything 4 - they can only see specific modules etc etc etc And have it linked to my free group classroom.
When will we have this feature? Also, it would be great to have a button where the user puts country. I'm asking members to put their phone number, but sometimes I have to guess where they're from, because they don't put the +1 or +52...
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Would be great if the questions were more in their face when they sign up with a video or message we can write them to encourage them to do it. One person didn't know where the questions were. Declining majorly increases drop-off rate.
Can people edit their answers to the membership questions after submitted? Some people don't provide the answer right and I want to message them to edit their answer before I approve them into the group. I would like to be able to personally edit their answers as well.
Introducing two new features for courses: 1. Drip — Now you can drip course content to your members over time. When adding/editing a module, turn drip on, and enter the number of days you want to module to drip after. 2. Course permissions — Now you can give some of your members access to course A, but not course B. When adding/editing a course, set permissions to "All members have access" (default), or "Only some members have access". To give specific members access, find the member from the member's list, click the "..." menu, click "Manage access", and select the course from there. These were two of the most requested features we've had, so I hope you guys like them! Check it out and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
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.
I would like to reemphasize that this feature is really needed. It would make the learning experience a whole different beast as the transcripts and community content database builds. It's one of the core weapons of skool. The powerful unified search. Right now the search is weak for reasons mentioned above. Should be same as google keep search feature.
Would be cool to be able to enable a power search feature that can detect synonyms like google search. For instance on google search if you input "How to cook food" it may pull up a result like "How to bake a recipe" I'm trying to build a huge archive of transcripts for technical software information but it won't quite work unless there are more power features to the search tool like google.
When using the free community to upsell, I need locked courses to have like 3 modules that are not locked. So they can see the outline of the modules/resources in the paid course but only get to watch a sales video and a few lessons in the free course.
The problem is: I've noticed many of my students don't check their notifications because there's too many. I think the red number should go away when you click the bell but the blue dot can stay to remind you which are not checked. https://www.loom.com/share/33de6825a188488988c6d334c90fc4a9
