@Sid Sahasrabuddhe asked me about text formatting options and I just noticed that some of you just might need some more tipps of what's already possible to highlight text and make certain content more visible for your students. Besides Heading, bold and italic I don't need a lot of features. I love that Skool keep things simple, but for very long text content it might be very helpful. Anyways here some ideas: 1. bullet points are already possible: Press "*" and then "spacebar" 2. You can use emojis like number symbols or colored dots (@Ted Carr 🙏) 3. If you need more emojis, just press "control+command+spacebar" (Mac)
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?
This is a group on Skool, about Skool, by people who use Skool. Here's 4 ways to get started: 1. Check out our "Skool 101" course to learn about the product and common use-cases. 2. Use Skool and share your feedback by posting/commenting in the community. 3. Attend our monthly "Skool office hours" livestreams for product updates and Q&A. 4. Want to create your own group on Skool? Click here to do that. Watch the video below for a quick overview of the product. Enjoy 🎉
@Stefan Karalic yeah true! i signed up for over 10 membership platforms yesterday... circle, ghost, mighty neworks, kajabi, podia, thinkific etc etc etc... but skool is THE BEST. it's the only one with everything I need lol. just need this webhook and we're SET haha
Not the first to ask, but it would be awesome if we could drip content in our courses. How ? Just add a little new field in the "Edit set" that allows us to put a number of days for drip (see my screenshot). Thanks for reading ! 😸
As much as I love the idea of giving gems, I also love the idea of being able to remove/take back gems - here's why: Giving gems attracts more attention to individual posts, which is great, but I'm always hesitant to give out gems because... 1. It's permanent! 2. What if I give a gem to some deserving post, but then the person edits that post and it's no longer gem worthy? 3. What if I give a gem to the wrong post by mistake, or instantly change my mind after? 4. What if I want to give a gem to a post because this month it's important, but next month it's irrelevant? In summary, having the ability to remove gems would make me A LOT more willing to actually use this beautiful 'gem giving' feature in the first place. Thoughts?
Hey Scott, not yet. You can, however, spend a few minutes and just sit and tag everyone like @SCOTT PRINGLE @SCOTT PRINGLE @SCOTT PRINGLE ... or u can always copy/paste the link of your post (https://www.skool.com/community/tagging-your-whole-community?p=9454c7d8) and DM people 1 at a time.
Hey Skool Fam, I just put together a quick video showing you how I've set up customizable Skool notifications so my team & I can quickly DM someone as soon as they join our community. This helps boost engagement as well as the lifetime ROI for each new group member we get. Let me know if you have any Q's below 👇 Happy Skooling, Ted P.S. The scripts you see in this vid are first versions & will be improved upon. When I've worked out an awesome opener I'll post it here for y'all to see/use/customize for yourselves.
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!
Now you can earn 40% of monthly recurring revenue by referring people to Skool. Refer 3 people and Skool becomes an income stream, not a cost. Watch the video below to see how it works. How to refer people: Go to "User settings" --> "Referrals" tab --> Copy/paste your referral link --> Done! Note: You can only refer people if you've got a paid group on Skool. Check it out and let us know what you think? 💰💰💰
Hate figuring out new tech? Me too. Makes my brain hurt. Think setting up a new Skool group will take awhile? I thought the same. Put it off for weeks. Searchie, Circle, Kartra, Podia, Kajabi & Mighty Networks all let me down, so why would Skool be any different? One word: 'Sam-Ovens' (that's a word, right?) Want to see how easy setting up a new Skool group can be? I just set up a brand new Skool group from scratch, and I recorded the whole process. If you follow the steps in this vid, you'll be fully set up & ready to welcome new members in less than 10 minutes. So sit back & relax, grab yourself a free 14 day Skool trial, and follow along as I take you through all of the key settings and configurations you need to launch a brand new Skool group from scratch - in less than 10 minutes!
I'd love to be able to add a header image to the top of modules. Right now the only visual we can add is a video thumbnail if w upload a video. But for certain modules we have no video, and without any image at the top it looks & feels kinda lame... Just my 2 cents :) Would also love: • Ability to set 'drip' on SETS not just modules • Drag & drop module re organization • Ability to turn off progress tracker for certain sets
I want support to decide which community platform i should go for... I already have Kajabi and considering circle for community due to all the features... but would it be better to go for skool and keep the content and community together here... any thoughts or feedback is much appreciated.
Hey guys, Is it possible to take off the restriction on name changes? We have a badge system in our program. Each time someone progresses they get a badge. When seen by the community, it helps give weight/credibility to a persons comments etc @Sam Ovens
Dear Team Skool, I'm part of a Circle group, and though I much prefer Skool, there are 2 things I must confess I do love about Circle. #1) They allow GIF's. In today's day in age, GIF's are a quick & easy way to express yourself... but more importantly, they're FUN! I use them a lot, and so does everyone on my team. Not having GIF's is a little bit of a buzzkill and makes everything seem a bit more serious & dry... (the screenshot below of the cowboy is actually a GIF someone posted in their Circle post) #2) They allow for bigger photos. Skool's photo size in posts is so small unless you click on it, which makes the text the main focus. But what if I want my photo to be the main focus? Today I posted a screenshot and it's all I really wanted to post. But I had to write a lot of text to convince people to click & open the photo. I think Skool could keep showing their small thumbnail in the 'preview' mode of a post, but when someone opens the post, I'd love to see a full size image (as seen in the Circle post pic)
During office hours, I asked Sam what Skool's marketing strategy will be (Ads, Organic, etc.) and he said 'word of mouth'. And now they've released the affiliate program which is cool BUT... As much as I love Skool... (I use it everyday & have 100+ paying members in my group) And as focused as I am at helping people start their own memberships which Skool *Would Be* perfect for... It's still hard for me to get ppl to A) get people use my Skool affiliate link and B) become Skool users Because of these 3 reasons: 1) There is no benefit for THEM in using my link. Right now I'm telling people if they use my link I'll hop on a 30 min Zoom call w em to set it up... not scaleable. Solution: Give them a longer free trial (or a % discount) for using my link. 2) The Zapier --> Skool webhook integration is 'too advanced' for beginners. Solution: Let us create a basic landing page that lets us take payments directly on Skool. I appreciate that Skool wants to focus on being the best 'after the sale' platform, but a simple checkout feature could get way more people using Skool since it'd make things A LOT more beginner friendly. 3) There is still no webhook for unsubscribing members or 'suspending' them when they fail to pay their membership fee. Out of my 150 members on Skool, at least 10 of them shouldn't be in there but I've yet to remove them cause it's a pain in the a%%. Solution: I'll let @Nick Guadagnoli and @Sam Ovens solve that one ;) LOVE YOU 👆 ❤️ And see you in Skool :)
I know I can 'Jump to the latest comment', but since this thread has like 200 comments, I'd also like to be able to 'Jump to the top' :) If a lookalike button was placed to the right, with an up arrow, and said 'Jump to the top' it would fit in nicely :)
Hey Team, I use Muse.ai for my video hosting and it looks that video from muse are not supported in Skool. You don't have to do an integration with all the video hosting softwares out there, if you could just enable scripts so that we can put the code and it will work... Just like how clickfunnels does it. Thanks
Now you can monitor the health of your group with three simple metrics: 1. Total members: How many members are in your group over time 2. Active members: How many members visit your group on a monthly, weekly, or daily basis 3. Daily activity: How active your group is daily over a 365 day period I think we all agree, the most important metric is active members. It's a measure of engagement. Check out your own group metrics and let me know what you think in the comments?
@Sam Ovens yes, however... it's cumbersome because the progress % is hidden unless hovered over one user at a time. it's not super 'user friendly' like Podia's example where you can see heaps of users progress at a glance.

You'll have to define "better". For some, simpler is better :) For others, more features is better. So it really depends what you're looking for... What are you looking for exactly? For me I'm looking for a simple community forum, calendar for Zoom calls, and a place for my course contents to live. I like the simplest approach - so I signed up with Skool. Are there things I'd change about Skool? Yes! Which is why I provide ample feedback to the team in the hopes they'll make these changes... but there's a lot less I'd change about Skool than I'd change with MN, Thinkific, Teachable, Podia, Kajabi, etc. Not saying you are, BUT if it's an extra $66/month you're most concerned about, perhaps using Skool will help you simplify your approach, allowing you to make an extra $66 that you wouldn't have been able to otherwise ;) Just my 2 cents!
We have 3 Skool communitys and all three are reusing a few of the same courses for different things. Is there any way we can duplicate a finished course on one community page to another so we dont have to recreate it?
Not yet, but that sounds like a great idea, Roham. Your best bet at the moment would be to pay a freelancer on upwork.com to migrate it over for you. Depending on the amount of course material, it may only cost you $30-50 to have it all duplicated.
Just hit 100 members - party time! 🥳 Thought it'd be helpful to share with you 10 lessons I've learned along the way (and wish I knew earlier) so you can grow your Skool community more effectively & keep your members happy to lessen churn. I've also included 4 things I "hate" about Skool, AKA 'Wishlist Features' that I feel would make Skool even better. This is a big milestone for me and I'm so stoked to have made my 'clear & definite aim' a reality! Next target: 1,000 members. Enjoy the lessons, and big thanks to @Sam Ovens for all of his YouTube mentorship over the years. Ted P.S. I'd love to hear what you've learned since using Skool... If you have any tips/strategies for: • Growing your Skool group faster • Keeping your Skool members happy • Using Skool more effectively as an admin/moderator/teacher Please comment below with what they are :) You rock.
