Introducing two new features for courses: 1. Drip โ€”ย 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 โ€”ย 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!

When I set the drip feed. I do not get the thumbnail showing of when it will be released by. Instead it shows like this:

I noticed the drip feed feature is only available for individual modules but not "sets" i was looking to drip feed the entire set as I want to launch an entire "week". Week by week rather than individual videos.

Would love to be able to post larger file sizes in the comments section. I cant post my audio files for my 1on1 calls, Q&A's or lessons.

I would love larger video thumbnails. I think many would like the same. On the community homepage.

Was wondering if anyone uses skool for their team, their staff and employees? If so how are you using it or what tools are better?

It would be really really awesome if you @Sam Ovens could add this feature some time in the future to classroom: The ability to only unlock modules after a certain period of time. So that one new set gets automatically unlocked each week / month / ... . So the member can't access all the course content right now, and instead has to wait a certain period of time before he can see the next module. This way you stop people from binge watching through the content without implementing the new knowledge. Would be SO appreciated! :))

I posted this in Uplevel, but I thought I'd post it here, too. I expect that my course will get much better results when people attend the weekly Q&A/coaching calls, as it includes dealing with some levels of addiction, and live meetings are crucial for success. I was wondering if it would be possible, at some point, to award points for attendance at Q&A calls. And also, to be able to just award points in general. I know we can use gems for good content, and good content gets comments, which lead to points, but it seems having the option to award points, as an admin, would be great. Community is essential, and anything to encourage that would be great. Gamification is a great feature, and I'd love to see more admin ability to use it as a carrot (as in carrot and stick), as opposed to it being purely automated. I imagine this has been discussed, but I'd love to get thoughts from you guys. @Jesse Clark @Nick Hauser @Sid Sahasrabuddhe

    It would be amazing for admins to have some control over the gamification process and the awarding of points.

are we able to change the link in the calendar section after a zoom video was live to a link of the recording? so if people missed it they can click the date on the calendar and see that call/video? rather than having to find the replay in the feed?

    So whats better for Q&A recordings? putting it under a category called Q&A recordings? or creating a new course in a classroom called recordings?

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.

We're currently using Circle.so as our membership community and Kajabi for hosting replays. It's clunky, I don't like it! Kajabi is great for simple email, page creation and courses. However, it really does suck with page speed, community aspect and calendar integration. We're gonna get rid of Circle.so (not Kajabi yet, because our website and landing pages are there) These are the 2 features we must have to use Skool: 1. Video hosting for our members (our members are mothers who aren't tech-savvy and would be a nightmare for them to upload sensitive videos onto youtube and paste the link on Skool) 2. Our membership is a recurring model and I'd like to automate the removing members! (If we could integrate with a Google sheet with their emails, my VA could also help remove members). Thanks so much. Skool is a lot faster and cleaner than Circle. Maybe I could even get rid of Kajabi one day!

    yes to imbed videos directly into skool would be game changer

I know you can use Loom videos for courses but I find that descript.com is an even better platform. Thanks in advance.

I don't know if this has been discussed before, but it would be helpful if you would be able to restrict certain sets of the classroom. I have a set that ist called "Mindest Bonus" that is an incentive to give a video testimonial. So I want to unlock this set only for people that gave a video testimonial. Is this feature planed @Sam Ovens and all the the team members, or is this not on the roadmap because you don't see the value?

Hey Team, Recently, I've come across a Chrome Extension called Video Downloader for Vimeo that pretty much allows a user to download any video that is hosted on a Vimeo platform. I tested it out and in fact, it does work even if all of the videos are private Vimeo videos. Anyone who is a member of the Classroom would be able to download the video in high-res format and pirate it 100%. Do you have any plans to combat this situation? Any security features? Is there a way to protect our content on Skool in some way from this kind of Chrome downloader extensions?

Hello guys ! Loom has an option with their embed links that can hide the title and share buttons of the embedded video (cf. this post of loom support https://support.loom.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002208317-How-to-embed-your-video-into-a-webpage-). Unfortunately, this option is not supported by Skool when I use the parameters ?hide_title=true, ?hide_share=true. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Please Skool team, can you consider using the loom parameters in your embed code ? It would really helps ! Thanks for this awesome platform :)

    had this been added? loom seems to have the share button still. Can we use the embed code?

What are some amazing ways to keep your clients accountable using the platform? Any features that accomplishes this easily? I and presume many others would love a "focus" on accountability. This would really set this apart from other community platforms in terms of helping getting your clients results.

Hey is there any plan to make full sized images, and video previews just like in facebook groups? I think it can help tremendously.

    For example when doing accountability posts for my clients. Using full sized image/graphic that grabs peoples attention and is distinct, and ppl would write their goals for the week, or weekly progress. The graphic is branded for the day. (Example: Monday Goals for the week, Wednesday weekly progress check-in, friday wins).

I mentioned this during the last open office hours call, but as I've continued to research alternate options the more clear this is a huge opportunity for this platform. There really should be an option for admins/teachers to have notes for each student/member which can be referenced by all the admins/teachers. Polling most teachers and online course instructors its clear they are mostly using google docs to fill this need. From what I've found available, building a custom workflow in Notion seems to offer the best options, if you know of alternate options please feel free to share! Still, this seems like an extremely low hanging fruit for Skool to be a must have for instructors and educators. Bringing these notes into this service will dramatically improve its functionality for the limited effort of effectively just building an alternate message board interface. Functionally all I really am looking for is the ability to add searchable timestamped notes to a log file for each student, accessible by admins by clicking on the students profile and from an overview of the roster. Potentially allowing the attachment of files would be a terrific upgrade to this feature as well. Thank you so much for building this service! I look forward to migrating my community to this platform in the coming weeks, can't wait to see what growth this allows!

Here's how I've customized my Skool group. It's still a work in progress, but maybe you can get some ideas by seeing what I'm doing with mine... I'd love to hear/see how you've customized yours well! Comment below with a tour of your group or post any suggestions for me & others :)
