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?

    Awesome this is a great feature. Thanks :)

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.

Sometimes you need to express a feeling, but words alone can’t quite do it. Now you can add GIFs to Posts, Comments, Replies, and Chats! Just click the GIF button, type your keyword, find the perfect GIF, and it will attach to the post or comment you are writing. Comment below with a GIF! Thanks team! 🙌

I love everything about Skool but... one major drawback with Skool is you can't set the drip to unlock new courses based on course progress. Right now we can drip/unlock material based on days, and based on level, but not based on actual progress. Request: Allow us to set an unlock for new courses based on % of course progress. Example: If @Sid Sahasrabuddhe completes 100% of Course #1, then Course #2 becomes available to him. Thanks Skool!

This would then instantly send them a DM letting the author know A) which post of there's was deleted and B) why it was deleted. Would be seamless. Right now I have to DM them separately (friction) and I never do because it's an extra step and feels kinda awkward going out of my way to say "hey, btw u did something wrong, and that post u wrote a few days ago was deleted"

    @Sid Sahasrabuddhe This was totally Ted's request & I jumped in so hard lol. Let's see if he has any feedback to what you said 😅

Hey Skool-Team, it would be awesome to have a shared Inbox for private messages. This would help a lot when there is more than one mentor. Example: A mentee has a personal question and sends a private message to the support- / mentoring-team within Skool. Everybody from the mentoring staff can answer and also have a look at the whole conversation. (maybe a light version of help scout within Skool) Is something like this on your backlog? Thanks for your help!

It would be useful to have different levels of access to calendar events. I am creating a pro version of my membership, and I would like to have a calendar event only accessible to them. Perhaps the "pro" members could be given access through a custom label, or being a moderator, or being a certain level.

    I like that! Or a different calendar tab that only premium access can see.

What can I say to my team so they have the confidence to launch on Skool instead of Kajabi?

    The private "Twitter/FB-Like" community dashboard is honestly the best thing Skool has. Plus you can access the team directly easily & request new features ;)

    Also for ALL you get for the price... so worth it. Skool is so easy to manage & user-friendly.

Can we get bold text as an option in posts and descriptions? (CRL+B)

    𝘁𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 - oh that works! Thanks @Marie Boudon

In the future, will students be able to submit their work in the classroom? And possibly earn points for it? For example, in Kajabi I can see when my clients submit their reflection questions. I guess I could have my students post their answers in the comment section on Skool, but if it's personal and private, some people might not want to share that stuff with the public. Although, I could see the benefits of submitting your answers publicly. As of now, you can only post a video as the main lesson/content, but it would be nice to post a form or worksheet that you can complete right in the classroom. I'm curious, because one of my biggest selling points for coaching has been the accountability factor, and this feature would help in holding my students accountable. Yes, they can mark a module done, but I won't know if they actually did it or not, unless they privately send me their work, which is just more effort for them. As a student of many courses myself, that has always been one of my biggest issues, not having a teacher or coach to check my work and give me feedback. Working with someone who can not only make sure I do the steps, but also reflect and discuss my answers, has been incredibly valuable, and I think having a place to submit work would help with that process. Here's an app that does this well: https://quenza.com/ Idk if you ever heard of Quenza, but I don't see them as a direct competitor of Skool so no worries. Hopefully, you find some inspiration and ideas by checking them out. As a K-12 teacher, my needs might be a little different than other Skool users. I plan on using Skool for my students starting in the Fall and beyond, and the gamification aspect is a big selling point for me (although I like everything about Skool) so the more flexibility we have in controlling the rules of the game, such as giving points for completed assignments, would make this even more valuable. Not sure if this was already talked about, I think it was, but either way thanks for listening! Keep up the great work.

    Oh yes I absolutely love the worksheet idea & definitely agree on the accountability part. Also it would be cool to have a built in checklist where members can hit milestones & they level up & unlock new features. Similar to the leaderboard levels but with tasks we can put in ourselves. New level unlocked notifications & what's to come when a new level is unlocked timeline. (I attached a sample photo from a video game) I've attached a milestone timeline I created, it'd be cool to have something similar in Skool that is interactive & the user sees a progress line. Helps keep them motivated & held accountable.

Is it possible to reorder my courses on the Classroom home page?

    Not from the Classroom home page itself. Go to Settings > Classroom. You can reorder there by clicking on the 3 dots button & selecting "move up" or "move down".

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.

    Super helpful - definitely doing this. Thanks Ted :)

We currently post all of my call replays in my Skool community forum under the 'Call Replay' Category but... We'd rather post them in a classroom. We don't do it though because then people would score very low on their course completion %. If Skool could make the completion % feature optional for certain classes that'd be amazing! Because we also want to use certain classrooms as a place store resources and guides and articles etc. and that simply wouldn't be appropriate for the community forum. Thanks for your consideration :) Loving Skool daily.

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

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. 🙂🙂

Honest criticism here. I love the Skool platform, but I kind of think the name Skool is not the best. Personally I go to online education because I disliked the education system that was associated with the name 'skool.' The name Skool brings too much school into online school. I personally feel that it It keeps the brand stuck in those negative associations.

    I personally love the name Skool. It's cool (haha). If you love the Skool platform maybe you can associate that positivity towards "school" now & leave the past behind :)

Is there a place to view different course designs? I need an update and looking for inspiration.

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 cool! np & thanks :)

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 :)

    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 :)

Just heard Sam mentioned his desire to do this in Skool- yes!!

    @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.

    First you create the set. Then you create the modules. When you're creating the module you'll see an option to select the set you want it to be in :)

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.

    I just use the "move up" option for now & it works fine! I can do it for both sets & modules.

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've changed the colour a few times to see where it appears but I don't see it anywhere. Am I missing something or is this a coming-soon feature?

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.
