Now you can explore all the communities on Skool! This has two benefits: 1. Members can find communities that interest them 2. Communities get found by members (free advertising) Open your switcher (cmd + k) and click "Discover communities" to explore. You can search for anything, browse categories, and filter by free/paid, and private/public. We rank communities by an engagement/quality score. The more engaged your community is, the higher you rank. This means the better you make your community, the more members you get. Watch the video below for more info. Enjoy 🎉
Don't understand how to provide a closed link. So I live the feature of being able to restricted members access to courses. This should also be an option on calendar. events This issue needs to be looked into.
Following our convo @Natalie Alsop using the Calender on Skool ie pointless for a mixed group of members eg on different courses with restricted access Looks like it is better to set up Google Calendar events and invite participants for particular courses that way.
Introducing the first paid community on Skool — "$1 Club". Its purpose: To demonstrate the paid community experience. For $1 /month you'll get to: 1. See what it's like to subscribe to a paid community (as a member) 2. See what it's like to sell a paid community (as an admin) 3. Be first in line to use the payments system (for your own community) Click here to join $1 Club. We don't expect you to pay $1 /month ongoing. You can cancel your subscription at any time with 1-click. We're doing this as a live demonstration of our payments system. See you on the other side!
Having again... another debate about Facebook Group vs Skool Group. One of the factors affecting some people Decision regarding Skool, is due to no ability to stream live into the Skool group. Is this live feature in the pipeline for adding to Skool? If so, when?

I ran a giveaway competition during July to help boost the number of members. My group is growing slowly, now up to 44 members since switching to the free version from a closed private group with 8 inactive members! The ability to email all the members is pretty cool when creating posts. Great to hear how people are pushing traffic to their groups? I've got LinkedIn outreach campaigns running inviting select prospects to the group, also mentioning it in all my emails etc... What are other people doing to promote their free groups? 🤩
We recently shipped these changes to the calendar feature. People loved the ability to set access permissions, cover images, etc. But most didn't like the events UI, they preferred the calendar. So... Now the calendar UI is back! And you can toggle between calendar/events list with a single click. We learned something from this: Next time we make any meaningful changes to the interface, we'll ship the change to a small beta group of communities and gather feedback there before we ship the change to everybody. Skool is a lot bigger now, and we need to adjust our process. We're learning!
Now you can set access permissions for your events, just like courses. You can make events accessible to members at a level, or members with a course. You can set a cover image to personalize your events, and specify the link/address separate from the description so it shows/hides depending on the member's access. We renamed the "Calendar" tab to "Events" because it's the events that are important, and this new UI emphasizes the events instead of empty white space. We added a cool "LIVE" indicator too! Watch this video to see how this new feature works, and let us know what you think?
@Sam Ovens, can I suggest two improvements to new member requests. Firstly, we need some form of notification when a new member requests to join a group. I can be busy doing other things and sometimes simply do not see the requests for several hours. Secondly, people often try to join without answering the three questions. Can we please have a way to make answering the questions a requirement. If I can’t see who they are and how to contact them, I would rather not have them in the group, but there still doesn’t seem to be a way to make it mandatory to answer the questions. Thank you!
