We think "Courses" is more intuitive. What do you think?

    What about "Courses" as the default, but you can change it to: Classroom, Guides, Resources, Wiki.

Here's the video if interested

    Skool relationship status feature? haha

We made this fun tool to discover random Skool communities and members. It's not an "official feature", just something we made internally and thought we'd share 🙂. Try it and see what you think.

We wanted to make creating/editing courses as easy as possible. Now you can create/edit courses on the same page. What you see in the editor is what you get when it's saved. You can reorder your sets/modules by dragging and dropping them too. Watch the video to see how it works and let us know what you think? This is the easiest way to create/edit courses I've seen.

    @Hưng Nguyễn sorry dude, that video is so confusing i have no idea what's going on. I don't think there's a problem with the feature, it seems to be working fine.

    @Amrit Shinh can you please share a loom video of this? I can't reproduce it.

Imagine making a calendar event only accessible to members at level 6. Is this something you want?

    Thank you for the feedback, everybody. This has been helpful. We won't be removing this feature. However, it seems like we can make it better by connecting directly to your calendar via an API and syncing all group events to your calendar without you having to click anything. That seems like the perfect solution.

I don't remember changing any settings but somehow I can't see discussions for any of my course modules... I thought for sure it was right here. 🤔

    @Kyra Kelm probably not in V1. But definitely will support tracking later.

To build a successful community, you don't need 1,000 fans. You need 10 true regulars. (Credit to David Spinks for this idea... It's brilliant). This may contradict what most people imagine about communities — spaces with hundreds or thousands of people actively contributing and forming relationships where everyone is engaged and involved. In reality, only a small percentage of your members will actively participate. You don't need a lot of active members to get conversations flowing; you only need the right few. When new members join your community and see dozens of new posts and hundreds of new comments every week, they won't know if all that activity is coming from ten people or 100 people. However, getting to ten true regulars is not easy. My recommendation: Start with three. Get to the point where you have three members who are coming back every day (or most days) and posting and commenting. You probably already know the three people. A lot of successful communities have the same founding story: "It was just me and a few friends in a group, and it slowly grew from there." Who are you already talking to about the topic of the community? What three people would you text first with a question? You've already validated that they're motivated. They could be your founding members. Ask them if they'd be interested in joining a small group of friends who are interested in the same topic. Once you get them together, start conversations, discuss interesting articles, and share learnings. Be yourselves, the same way you would in a private text conversation. Be weird, tell jokes, have fun. It's that kind of organic, quirky core that can spark a thriving community. Slowly invite more people, but don't invite too many at once, or you'll smother the flame. Be selective and keep curating. Once you have 3 true regulars — reward them, make them feel special, hang out with them on Zoom 1on1, meet them in-person — give them what they need so they can continue being a role model in your community.

    @Rashmi Suthar please email

Hello to the Skool team and the Skool Community. First off, I was just weeks away from launching a course on Kajabi when I stumbled across Sam Ovens on Youtube, and I'm so glad I did!!! Sam's insights on business, personal awareness, mental models and just about every other topic he covers have been instantly game changing for me. For this reason my base position is that with Sam's insights, and the team's skills and passion for this project, all areas of the platform which currently need improvements will be brought up to full potential in due time. With that being said I would find it very helpful to have some deeper insights on what classroom improvements are pending. While I understand and generally accept the premise that the community can be more valuable than the course material itself, I do also believe in the ability of well written, well shot, and well edited educational video content to change lives. I have taken several online courses which had a relatively weak or non-existent community component that I took great value from, because just like a good book you read over and over, the content was on point. Given that Skools foundation and differentiation is in its community model, it is totally understandable that a large portion of the upfront efforts have been allocated there to make sure it is industry leading, which I believe they have achieved. However, my concern is that the classroom needs several key improvements, which I will list under the two broad categories of distraction proneness and gamification, both which could fall under the heading of user experience, and or user propensity to complete course material. DISTRACTION PRONENESS: 1. Small Video Player: The default video player is very small, vs some other leading course platforms with on app video hosting, that have options for the classroom setting which has a default video player screen which is nearly full screen. I would love to see the curriculum tabs and the progress bar pushed to the far right of the screen, rather than so close to the middle of the screen, leaving so much empty room in the margins.

    Appreciate the feedback. We'll keep making things better 🙂.

Want a simple landing page that explains what your group is about and why people should join? Now you have one! See an example here. You can promote your group by adding videos, images, and a description. You can specify if your group is free or paid. (less confusion when non-customers request access thinking it's free). For private groups: Non-members will see this page when they visit any of your group's links. For public groups: Non-members will see this page on the "About" tab. Once somebody is a member of a group, they'll see this page under the "About" tab. If you're an admin of a group, go to the "About" tab to customize your landing page. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think? 🎉

    @Daniel Hansen Pedersen unlikely. Not many people use Skool on iPad. Even Instagram doesn't support iPad.

It would be powerful if we could train a GPT like AI on our Classroom content. Have the AI watch for the posts made in our Community and comment on them with quality answers. Have it link to the Classroom lesson where it's pulling it's answer or answers so the clients can investigate further. Allow users to thumbs up / thumbs down the AI comments for further reinforcement learning. Think Github Copilot, ChatGPT, Notion AI, Jasper, etc.

As the community grows and more people have the same name, it's getting hard to perform admin work. Is there any way we can add the member email as a required part of their profile?

    Glad you like them 🙂. Yeah, that's a good idea. We really need that. We'll make things better this week.

Hey friends, I’m a huge believer in the Skool approach overall and I’m considering starting my own. However, my main hesitation is around the idea of two separate (free & paid) skools. I want to definitely build a free Skool but I also want a “private” room for my current high-ticket coaching clients inside the same Skool. It just feels clunky and bloated to have two entirely separate Skools with different leaderboards etc. Just to make it clear: The extra money is not the issue. I’d happily pay for that feature inside the same Skool. @Sam Ovens any plans on developing Skool in that direction? I view simplification and focus as your superpowers. That’s what draws me to your brand. Thanks a million!

    You can put your free and paid members in the same group but give paid members access to different course content and calendar events. We don't think it's a good idea to segment community.

We just shipped these features: 1. Course progress — see what % of your courses members have completed. (image #1). 2. Churned tab — see members who left your group and when. (image #2). 3. Membership settings modal — access all member info easily from the members list, profile, or profile preview. Membership questions, course progress, etc. live here now. (image #3). Check them out and let us know what you think? Enjoy 🎉

    @Lucia Galvez CXM its only people who were a member and are no longer a member (not declined requests).

Is there a way to schedule access removal for a member once they cancel their subscription at the end of their billing period? This would cut down admin work by a hefty amount.

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe please investigate.

Now you can use rich text editing to create course modules any way you like! Click here to see an example. (fastest way to understand the new feature). Now you can use the following: 1. Inline images 2. Headings 3. Bold, italics, strikethrough 4. Inline code and code blocks 5. Bulleted and numbered lists 6. Quote blocks 7. Links 8. Dividers 9. Description visibility Check out the example here, try it for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments. Enjoy 🎉

    @Tamsin Henderson probably not. It's very clean at the moment. Last time we gave rich text editing to posts people were writing entire posts in bold, headline, etc.

Here's our roadmap. The image below shows you what's in progress and what's up next. You probably noticed we shipped many new features in the last 2-weeks. We hired some amazing talent, reorganized our teams — and our development velocity increased — significantly. Some of you were a little concerned at the rate of change. When we dug deeper, we found that lack of communication was the real issue. We learned from this and will improve moving forward. Sharing this roadmap is a way of keeping you in the loop of what's coming soon. We're super excited to share these new features with you! Internally, our team agreed, it feels like we're just getting started. Let's build this thing together 🔥

    @Stephen G. Pope maybe later. V1 will be subscription at the group level.

Hello, our sales team are telling us they can no longer invite people directly to our Skool group. They can only get an invite link to share. They have moderator access. This creates some friction because: "People invited with this link will go through the membership approval process." Which means an admin needs to approve these requests. Has something changed here with moderator access? Can only admins invite members via email?

Somebody made a public group called "Chat GPT Users". A member of the group created a post with the title "Prompt Generator". Google ranked the post #2 for the keyword: "Chat GPT prompt generator". That single post is generating thousands of unique visitors to the group. Pretty cool.

It does require the new feature (someone already requested it) that allows us to sell more courses inside Skool without necessarily selling different communities. This is the scenario I'm picturing: - I have a free community (it could be a paid membership) - I also create a paid course (or more than one) inside Skool - When my members go to "Classroom" they see the course is locked - If they click to learn more, the first video is unlocked and it's basically a VSL to explain them what the course is about - There's a button below to purchase the course with one click (when the billing is available, Skool will have payment details already, so we can easily create a one click upsell) Plus, if buyers in the community start talking about the course, FOMO will kick in for the other members and hopefully drive more sales. Everything inside Skool. What do you guys think?

Thank you for the app. I keep only relevant notifications on for my phone, specifically badges, so that if I see a new badge notification, there's something that needs my attention. I've noticed the Skool app displays those notifications accurately according to the last time I opened the app, but not in "real time". If I clear all of them from desktop browser, then I have to go back and open the app and let it update. I'd like to request that those number of notifications are synced so that it's not necessary to always have to go back and open the app just to reflect the accurate number of notifications.

    The app updates the notification badge counter with every new push notification, or when you open the app.
