I'm curious to know what some of you are doing to keep your members engaged here on Skool? What are you doing day to day - week to week to help people move forward using this platform? Would love to hear what's working!! Thx. Matt
I ask questions & make posts that would require them to comment if they want to participate! I also sometimes send out an email to my members linking to the post. Sunday/Monday motivation posts work well for me. Sharing something super valuable & inspirational always seems to get a lot of likes & comments too.
The option to not send an email to ALL the members would be useful. I'd like to have the ability to pick & choose who receives certain post emails. Maybe in the future there can be groups we can assign people to so it's easier to select who we want to send the email to once there are thousands of members.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe I'm okay with other members seeing the post in the Community Dashboard! I was more so saying for it to not be repetitive with certain members that for example are a 1:1 client or friends or admins. Not on a level of visibility standpoint. Good point with the notifications! I can just tell friends or admins to turn off the email notification. Thanks :)
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!
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. 😭 Please Skool team, can you consider using the loom parameters in your embed code ? It would really helps ! Thanks for this awesome platform :)
A pop up box after the member finishes watching the video to select "mark as done". I see that even if the member watches the video but doesn't select "mark as done" it doesn't track their progress. The pop up would be a helpful reminder to mark it as done so the progress is tracked! :)
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe oh I see. Now that I think about it - a progress/completion success map of a path would be really cool too. I see this is a great motivating feature. People like to WIN. But we'd have to put it in a way where they don't cancel when they finish the success path.
Wondering if we can have a way to re-order modules easily so new content added is top? Case in point, I upload group call recordings and would prefer most recent at the top. Small point but right now the only way seems to be moving up a step and the more that are added the more awkward it becomes.
My student recently asked me if there is a way to make the timeline chronological, or how the timeline algorithm worked. I most of the time have to rely on my notifications to tell me what I've missed, and sometimes I've completed missed a post (I have to scroll down a bit to see it). Is the timeline chronological at the moment? I am probably doing something wrong and I'd love guidance. My students and I's timeline is all messed up - some posts are older and some posts are newer and it's hard to find what just got posted.
I think right now the most popular posts show up at top below anything that's pinned. I noticed it also shows posts we haven't interacted with first even if they're much older. A filter option in addition to the categories "sort by: newest or oldest" would be cool!
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
Hi Skool Team, Creating great content is a big part of engaging with my community, and the ability to format my posts would help immensely. I've included a picture below from the community platform I used to use. Bolding, Italics, Dot points etc would be super helpful :)
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Gotcha! Thanks. I'll comment there. But to answer your question here - I would use the features in both the Community & the Classroom. A highlight option would be helpful too! I think those features will make it a lot easier for users to read longer posts. And I like to put emphasis on certain words.
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.
