    @Sam Ovens Thank You for listening & taking care of it.

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?

    @Raj Dash completion of courses maybe as we have a course space for recordings as well so nobody would complete that of course. Opening a new conversation could have indicators that a new post has been made in XYZ category. Or a new offer has been made to another participant in the program. A powerful assessment has been made. A breakthrough has been achieved or breakdown recognized.

    @Ryan Hartigan hmm interesting. Why though? I mean whats the concern there, i'm curious.

@Andrew Kirby stopped by Skool HQ the other day to hang out. We talked about Skool for 6 hours. He's doing some interesting things with his free group "Synthesizer School". He basically funnels his audience (social, email list, etc.) to his free group + mini-course. He builds a relationship with his audience in the group, and occasionally promotes his paid course. It works! The funnel: Audience → to Community → to Customers. Anyway... I got Kirby to create a "Free Group Funnel" mini-course sharing his process. If you have any questions, comment below, and I'm sure Kirby will help. Enjoy!

    @Saqib Rasool the course of free group funnel by Andrew! Check this out⁣

I noticed you have the option to create a public or a private group, where public groups can be found via the search. Are there any free groups besides this Skool Community? If so it would be nice to see other Public communities via recommendation (or even a Public tab) because I have not been able to find any via search.

    I don't think there is yet a list of all public groups that we could look into & join.

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.

It might be super useful to enable self-chat for users. Self-chat space becomes like a personal notebook of ideas, tidbits, nuggets, links, etc., found in the course of conversations on Skool. Usecase: I found the following post from Andrew Kirby pretty useful. I wanted to save the link. https://www.skool.com/community/the-weird-way-i-use-skool-i-think-its-pretty-powerful?p=538f6656. Where should I save it? In slack, I can send messages to myself where I went ahead and saved the link. It would be good if I had a space at Skool where I could keep this.

    @Saqib Rasool @Raj Dash That's a very interesting way to work together with our team on Skool. One of the reasons we have been requesting a group chat as well. But this will be very open & interactive and gives so many way to work together with the team. However, I think it would have a tendency to skip lots of things, with no notification triggers like Slack does. And no core team extended team divisions really in our case.

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe Okay! thank you! Got it.

Currently there are only 3 ways to get points on Skool... 1) You can make posts in the community and hope to get likes on your posts. 2) You can comment on posts and hope to get likes on your comments. 3) You can reply to to comments and hope to get likes on your replies. But what if you're an introvert or lone wolf who doesn't want to make posts, comment, or reply? Or what if you're just mega focused on course work and feel the community is a distraction/waste of time? Or what if a community is 'dead' and doesn't give you the likes you deserve? Or what if you don't speak English that well and suck at interacting w other people in english? How can you get points, level up and access new course material or the bonuses then? You can't. Or at least, not very well. Because you're relying soley on other people's approval and validation for your progress. And that's an issue. Because most of my membership materials & bonuses get unlocked as you level up... and I've already had several members in my community reach out to me and tell me they want to level up but don't want to make posts, comment, or reply just to get points. + I'm part of a Skool group with only 15 members, only 5 of which are active, so it makes it incredibly hard to get points & level up. So what's the solution? What if you could also get points by watching course material? Call em "Progress Points" Or what if you could also get +1 point each week just by remaining a member? Call em "Member Loyalty Points" Or what if you could also get points by completing a quiz? Call em "Quiz Completion Points" These are just some ideas. Happy to hear yours below.

    I think we should get points for engagement. Now how we define engagement could be either left to customization by group owners, or could be broad. More than ´likes´. Our education that we offer is not something that is ´Liked´ by many. It is uncomfortable as it challenges and questions norms & "accepted" truths. It is provocative. Also most of what we say in daily life is not `liked` always. So wanting to be liked to get points - I don´t get that! Points could be for comments and posts alone. They could be, like you suggested for watching or completing courses, could be for interacting with people within the community, for "breaking the ice" in inbox. Could be for inviting your friends to the relevant skool groups, could be for attending an event or call within skool. For logging in once a week, for reading through conversations. For observing questioning during calls. Maybe the admins can give some points based on some customized engagement features.

Hey Sam and the Team, I am thinking of moving over to Skool from Kajabi, but was wondering if you guys were working on a mobile app for students/clients to go through the modules on their phone? This is one thing I love about Kajabi because you can listen to courses on the go. I imagine you will be coming out with an app sometime in the near future?

    How often can we send out emails using the already existing toggle to notify members when sending out a post?

Is there a feature out yet? I read it was in the roadmap probably. In today´s age of technology dependent work, I think its extremely essential to have an edit / delete message option.

    @Saqib Rasool show me where 😀 lets have the fight tomorrow then ! 😎

Hi Skool Team, one item that recently came up missing, as we are gathering our tribe to join the free community, is the ability for people to indicate on the calendar invite that they will be there. That I believe will help the host as well and may encourage others to also join. Just a little button on an event that "I'll be there" would be great. And then show the icons of all that committed to being there. We had one event in our free community a couple of weeks ago and the speaker wanted confirmation. We had to send good old calendar invites. Oh and while I am asking if you click "I'll be there" you receive a calendar invite to go into your calendar. I know there are workarounds but I see this as an essential feature for the future of Skool. Thank you for considering.

    @Saqib Rasool I signed up for office hours using the Zoom RSVP thing. It flows nicely. An email followed by a google calendar invite. Lets go with that for now!

I´ve read up on why the feature was rolled back, simply stating for discovery purposes. But wouldn´t it be better if we can choose whether we want the discovery or not. We may not have enough students yet to start a whole another group. Run by a smaller team, its harder to keep two groups up and running. We want this one course to be a hidden course that is used by invited-only members. Maybe an option where we can select whether the group is ´accessible by some members´, ´accessible at some level´, or just ´hidden´.

    @Ted Carr i see it working for cohorts perfectly well. Or just people with very similar concerns speaking to each other within a more intimate group setting.

Does Skool have a "Quiz" feature where we can set up Quizzes for course students?

    We're using Vimeo, no issues so far. However, I'd like to explore why everybody loves bunny.net so much 😬

Is there a way to have a course be set to ´certain level members have access´ and also manually give some participants access to that course even before they reach that required level?

    @Sam Ovens ⁣I am thinking - not always will participants say something that will be 'liked' by most people. Sometimes, in our courses, people say things that are not 'liked'. They provoke and pertueb others. In our community, i'm expecting us and participants to say things that would make others questions what has always be known to be true. When you shake that ground a little, there are incredible openings and conversations that follow, but are those conversations always 'like-able'? I don't think so. Level up is like-dependant. So I would want to give access to somebody who is provokimg conversatioms but not at a higher level. An interesting challenge.

hi customer isn't able to watch videos on vimeo in ipad. Please advise. When she clicks play, the video disappears.

    Very interesting. This would help so much with the management and running of the community.

Hi, Question: Is there a way to see the student module completion rate e.g. Student A has done 20% of Week 1, Student B has done 100% of Week 1 etc. so we can hold them more accountable? In the metrics tab for my Skool group, I can only see a graph showing the activity of students in the group, who is active, who is not, when they are online etc. Thanks 😀

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe this only changes once the participant has marked complete. If they haven't and still did the course - that tells really yes. Yes?

    Congratulations 👊👏 we went back and forth a lot of this but as of today - Skool forms the foundations of our business model and offers.

Hey team! We just added some new gamification features. The idea is to surface and reward the people who add the most value by helping others. Here's how it works: • Points — whenever somebody likes your post/comment, you get 1-point. • Levels — your level will show as a blue dot with a number in it on your avatar and profile. As you get more points, you start to level up. • Leaderboards — the members who gained the most points in the last 7-days, 30-days, and all-time will show on the leaderboards tab here. • Gems — group admins can award "gems" to posts/comments that are of exceptional quality. Awarding a gem makes the post/comment stand out so others are more likely to see it and users can use the "Gems" filter to find admin curated highlights from the community. • Prizes — with these new features you can offer prizes to members that appear in the top 10 to reward top contributors and incentivize the right behavior. This isn't a "feature", but something we've noticed works well in other communities. We recommend offering prizes in your community! Let the games begin!

I'm curious how the level scaling system is calculated in regards to points required to level up? Is there a set increase at each level (eg Level 3 requires 50% more points than Level 2 to level up etc.) or is it just a set number of points at each level (eg Level 1 = 10 points, Level 2 = 30 points etc.) We're looking to add Milestone gifts once users reach certain levels so it would be great to know how many points are required to hit each level. Thanks!

    The points are only dependent on likes or engagement?

Am I just blind? Is there a support button anywhere here? I'm trying to figure out how to get in touch with the team. I am in two Skools under this email address, we just signed up for a Skool account ourselves, but my team members did it under a different email address. Is there anyway to link the accounts?

    Easier than ever on Skool😁 Leave a post here or message them directly via chat.

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!
