We think "Courses" is more intuitive. What do you think?
I personally like "Classroom", it's different (the term "courses" is used on every other platform) & sounds more inviting than "Courses".
Imagine making a calendar event only accessible to members at level 6. Is this something you want?
I launched my free Skool community 2 weeks ago. I've already brought in over 100 members. Launched HT offer 1 week ago. Using the framework below + a team, I got calls booked & sales closed faster than ever before. Freebie > Free Skool Community > Skool DMs > Call > Close I used to use FB for the same niche, got over 1,000 members in there & none converted like they have with Skool. The members have also given GREAT feedback about the classroom, community dashboard & the APP! we 💜 Skool
@Tamsin Henderson I invited the entire group but only about 20 came in. I am selective when accepting or declining
@Lendon Bracewell yes & yes
Skool's official iOS App is live. Download it here on the iOS App Store, by scanning this QR code, or searching for "Skool Communities". It has push notifications, links open in the app, + more. Our Android app should be live in the next 30 days.
EPIC - thank you so much
Is it possible to turn off the gamification aspect for some members? For example, we want to give SOME members access to ALL the training upfront, without having to earn points to unlock the next Step in the Course. Thank you!
You can change this in settings for each module! To all members have access - and they get access upfront :)
@Tina Klinefelter do you see the option "only some members have access"?
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 🎉
What I've found is that (generally speaking), people don't care about your community until they're in it. Before they're a member, they just want to solve a problem, eliminate a pain, or get closer to their desire... So if you have a free thing that will help them in those ways, and you put said thing in your Skool community (and lock it behind level 1), they'll join your community to get it. Skool is the ultimate opt in tool. Now you just need a lead magnet. Questions? Comment below. 👇 Happy to help.

@Danny Mallinder definitely! I'll DM you.
@Troy Lavinia I made it myself so I don't have recommendations but I know there's plenty of people on Upwork you can interview! What type of landing page are you trying to make?
Just some feedback, the new style of editing modules/courses is so good. So seamless, so easy. This is a great update :)
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 🔥
Yesterday I made a post in my (3k members) free FB group and it performed poorly... ☠️ So this morning I made the same post in my (760 members) free Skool community to see if it'd perform any better... The results? See the attached images 👇 🤩 And this isn't just a 1 time fluke... I've seen a lot of other people here on Skool post about how their Skool community gets more engagement than their FB groups... And at first I thought, "yeah maybe for them, but not for me..." but now it's even happening for me 😮 Key takeaway: Organic engagement in a free Skool community is WAY better than on FB if you know how to set it up properly and nurture your people. If you don't have a free community on Skool yet, you're missing out... start one here <<<
This is FACTS! I launched my free community in Skool less than 2 weeks ago and I'm surprised at how much engagement it's gotten & keeps getting... Skool is the way to go.
Hey guys! As many of your know, I have a free Skool community. I started the community with zero intention of monetisation. I genuinely wanted to bring together 'my people'. But recently I launched an offer and... ... Drumroll please ... I made $100,000 in 10 days! With zero employees. And with only $99 in expenses (yes, Skool is my only expense apart from Stripe). From only one simple post. Would you guys be interested if I made a free course sharing how I did it? I could share: - Is a Free Group Funnel right for you? - How to START a free group funnel - How to FILL a free group funnel - How to MONETISE a free group funnel Comment a money related GIF if you'd be interested, so that I know who to send it to!
@Andrew Kirby thanks so much :)
We're working on subscription billing, and we need a few creators for the private beta. Interested? Give me a money GIF in the comments below if you want subscription billing.
Hi guys sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but yeah I have been working in the background helping users with my free strategy sessions, to help them get clarity around their online business and how Skool fits in. A common thread that pops up in these sessions is people are just not clear enough about their purpose as to why they would build an online business and integrate Skool into the business model. That purpose shouldn’t be about just making money, yes it’s a good measure of its eventual success, but the purpose should be more altruistic. The key to getting more clear and focused on helping the people you enjoy hanging out with, reading about, etc. Find their biggest challenges, and get excited about serving them with an online solution to help. And why I posted this article because it’s my passion to see the Skool platform used effectively by inspiring entrepreneurs. …so what are your biggest challenges? Who are the people you want to help? How can I help?
Absolutely agree with the purpose! Money as the WHY will not be sustainable long-term. Purpose + the impact I want to make is what keeps me motivated. This is SUCH a great reminder!
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.
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 :)
Yes this would be great for YouTube as well - showing suggested videos seems distracting!
We're thinking of doing a sick Black Friday deal. The craziest Black Friday deal we've ever done. Interested? Give me a sick GIF in the comments below if you want a sick deal.
We just shipped some new gamification features to make things more fun! • Custom level names: Personalize your group by naming your levels. • Unlock courses at levels: Unlock a course or something of value when members hit a high level. • Leaderboard redesign: Now you can see your progress and what you can unlock as you level up. Watch the Loom video below for more info on how it works and how to set it up for yourself. This is an experimental feature we're playing with, so we want to hear your feedback! Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think?
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!
Cool thanks! Would be great to have the option to drip upon completion of sets/modules.
Can we get bold text as an option in posts and descriptions? (CRL+B)
Thoughts on members having the option to turn on reminders for calendar events? Email reminder would be great. Text reminder would be EPIC. Maybe 24 hours before & 2 hours before. 🙂🙂
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
Settings -> Groups -> 3 Dots -> Move up/down :)

Oh yes - needed this thanks!
Just noticed we have to be in our own group first & then click settings to be able to see that "groups" tab.
Officially launched my free Skool group! Stoked to fully replace my FB group with Skool. Niche: Vegan Health & Fitness For Sustainable & Fun Weight-Loss The screenshot below is my sales flow, inspired by @Andrew Kirby - thank you @Andrew Kirby ! It was perfect timing to adopt a new sales flow for me as for the past couple of months I've been working on rebuilding my flow/programs because I transitioned OUT of 1:1 coaching. My sales flow was going to be content > webinar > self-paced course + membership. But the idea of building a community in a free group with super helpful free content resonated more with me and sounds a lot more fun & authentic. With an upsell of a membership & an inner circle. I also created a landing page for it, this idea was inspired by @Shivam Jha when he shared a landing page he created for this group - thank you @Shivam Jha ! Open to your thoughts & feedback :)
@Mark Ladson I will have just one for now for the paid. I will see how it goes & if I feel I need to have 2 separate ones I will.
@Mark Ladson yes I'm trying to get engagement up on my free community currently! What are you doing for that?
Here's the recording from today's call. We covered new features (membership questions, Zapier integration, ability to view/search members emails, and social links on users profiles. Lot's of exciting stuff to help you use Skool as a "group funnel" to get customers for your paid courses/communities. We covered a lot of best practices too. If you want to know how to use Skool to get customers, build community, and run a successful business — this recording is for you! Want to attend the next Office Hours live with us? See when it's happening on our calendar here
This call was awesome so glad I joined! Thanks for the new features & being so supportive. Stoked to see what's next!!
Would be cool to filter notifications by "likes" or "comments" as I'd like to make sure I don't miss any comments If I could filter also by comments on MY posts that'd be even more epic 😁 Makes it easier to go through the 99+ notifications
19 members have voted
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe yes, but I don't necessarily want to "unwatch" all of the posts. I want to filter my notifications and still see certain post notifications. Just want to go through my comments first. Does that make sense?
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe yes. Just more filtering options for notifications in addition to the 'groups' option. What Oli mentioned about filtering by "mentions" or "comment on YOUR post" is good too.
What do you ask when people join your group? Curious to learn from everyone else here! Also, do you feel we need 4 or 5 Q's instead of just 3?
16 members have voted
I'm cool with 4 or 5. I definitely want their phone # & email (I feel most people would) & then space to ask 2-3 niche related questions.
Hello Everyone, Newbie onboard, just learning the ropes. Look forward to making connections and networking!
Any predictions for what it'll be? My guess: an annual option, 20-30% off.
Hiya! I went to add a new category & was stopped by this red message telling me only up to 10 categories are allowed although the button to add is still yellow, allowing me to add a new category at first. Whereas in membership questions, once we've reached the limit the button to add goes gray. No biggie but this minor bug fix saves time. TY!
I have a paid membership and whenever someone asks me to cancel, I offer them to pause for 90 days instead, and 50% of the time they say yes. Issue #1: Skool does not let me pause members. Only ban or remove them. Issue #2: When their payment resumes, I have to remember to invite them back to Skool or else they get charged and don't have Skool access, and they get upset and want to cancel again. Solution: Let us pause members for a set duration. Would remove them and then 30, 60, or 90 days later would re-invite them/reinstate their accounts.

Yessss I have members currently paused too that I’ll need to re-invite back after. This would be super helpful
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe if we pause their membership, when they log on & try to access the group it could a say a message like "your membership is paused for the next ___ days." Rather than just a "join" button which is what happens now I believe. When the pause duration is over, when they log on & try to access the group it's back to normal automatically. A reminder email could also be neat - like 7 days prior or 3 days prior.
