I've developed a course that requires assessments to be completed to award a statement of attainment certificate (ASQA) at the successful completion of the course. Im currently using Thinkific which manages this automatically. I like Skool for the community posts, feedback etc but it would be great if there was an assessment type process included?
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
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
Hi, @Sam Ovens I have a team that consists of all millennials that are refusing to move to Skool till we could respond with different Emojis. One of them went as far as saying that "it is a fundamental violation of freedom of speech if we can't respond to a post with different emojis." Another felt that "freedom of expression in the community would be severely limited." Now I agree that Emojis do not contribute to learning but they may strongly contribute to creating a "group feel". I am told that as a Gen X, I just don't get it. Is it possible at all that we could consider adding a feature at some point in the future of responding with different Emojis a la Slack?
It would be great if you could "unlock" certain courses after the completion of others. So, if someone completes Course A, they unlock Course B. And so on. The "drip" feature is great, but you have to wait for the drip to kick in. Some people move faster than others, so it would be amazing if they could unlock a given course based on completion of another.
Hey team! Are Course Collections / Categories on the roadmap (as a feature in the Classroom)? Having 6+ courses all listed on one screen is a bit unwieldily and overwhelming (especially when you have a lot more than 6). It would be great to have Course Collections as a feature in the Classroom so that you could "tuck away" sub-courses under one Category, like a Dashboard (which you could then click into to focus on that sub-set of courses).
Hey guys! I understand skools feature for hosting community and courses. I have a 6 week program for this. But then I want to sell online courses without community or anything, how are you guys doing when you want to sell ONLY a online course. Like in Kajabi, are you complementing skool with somethine else?
Loving Skool, and the Skool 101 course videos are great - watched them all. But they don't answer some questions that I need to resolve ASAP -- as I need to sign up to Skool or a competitor this week or next. I was unable to find a "propaganda" page highlight Skool's features. Is there such a page? I need to understand all the features and limitations, including what's our hard storage capacity for documents and videos (and whether you have native video storage, or if I have to use external, such as YouTube). What I need to be sure of is asked below (not all are show-stoppers). Short versions of questions: 1. Gamification: Can we add additional gamification rules? 2. Audio: Can Skool store audio files? 3. Storage: What is the content storage limit? 4. Limiting community: Can we turn off community for some or all members? 5. Sub limit: Is there a max subscriber limit per group? 6. Removing subs: Is subscriber removal automated? == Show-stopper if Q9's answer is "yes" 7. Personal calendars: Can calendar events be "personalized?" 8. Multiple groups: Do we pay $99/m for each group we create? 9. Single group, multi-tiered: Can we set up multiple subscription tiers? Details: Sorry that the details are so verbose. I have some very advanced technical requirements and need to decide quickly. My feeling is not all of these questions will be answered in the Classroom videos, which will take me all week to go through. 1. Gamification: Ability to add other gamification rules at each subscription tier - not a show-stopper; I might be able to rig it some other way. 2. Audio: Can Skool store audio files or at least show an audio player linked by URL to an MP3/WAV file stored elsewhere in the Cloud? 3. Storage: What is the storage limit on a Skool community for content of all sorts? 4. Limiting community: Can "community" be controlled? E.g., turned off for some members in an easy manual or automated fashion? 5. Sub limit: Is there a max subscriber limit? If there is, do you have a way where I can pay a premium each month to allow more subscribers? 6. Removing subs: Easy removal of members who stopped paying (e.g., via Stripe or whatever). This is important in all subscription tiers, especially the top tier, where my team gets paid for their hourly services based on paying clients. Otherwise, it'll end up costing me. (Or at least some way to natively flag members in my Skool community who are unpaid for the month, even if I have to do it manually.) 7. Personal calendars: Can calendar events be "personalized?" E.g., at my highest subscription tier, members would be able to communicate with my team/admins to book 1-on-1 coaching/ hypnosis sessions (payment handled through subscription level, and possibly outside means). That coaching event is personal and should not be posted in the group calendar. But if it's possible to actually add such an event to a "personal" calendar, it would show up only to the member and the coach -- no one else. Is that possible? 8. Multiple groups: I essentially need either one group with multiple tiers (different subscription rates), or worst case multiple groups. In Skool 101, 2nd-last video, Sam mentions creating multiple groups but does not make clear if we have to pay $99/m for each group. The problem I have is that, with 3+ tiers desired, each tier needs to offer all of the features/ content of the tier below it. Not sure how multiple groups work, but can we automate a sign-up to higher tiers to have automatic access to lower tiers upon sign-up? Asking since it seems we can only send one webhook. I guess there are manual ways around this. 9. Single group, multi-tiered subscriptions. If the answer to #8 is that we have to pay $99/m for each group we create, then I'm wondering about an alternate approach. Can we set up multiple subscription tiers like Kartra, and can Calendar event listings be tiered by subscription? Both show-stoppers. For example, I need 3-4 sub levels, either explicitly (native to Skool) or implicitly (rigged through some sort of Skool member "flag" value that allows me to block access to some content, if not calendar events):
I love listening to video lessons myself when I'm driving, cycling, or jogging. I listen to old lessons again at twice the speed or listen to them for the first time to get an overview of what to expect from the new content. On all learning platforms it is annoying that the next video has to be played manually again. With Kajabi, it jumps to the next lesson 15 seconds after the end of the video. However, it still takes another click to start the video. That one extra "Kliks" sucks :) I would like a function that allows a tick to be set so that the next module is opened and played after the end of the previous video. Such a function would also be useful for communities in which audio books are made available.
Hi @Sam Ovens, greetings! I am requesting you consider building this feature next that enables people to have a space for messaging small select groups of others. Being able to name the group, or chat space would be awesome. Slack does this by creating channels. WhatsApp by creating groups. There could be a new Skool way to do this. Maybe a fifth top navbar menu item called Messaging, where you can see a list of all the 1:1 messages you have sent and see your named groups. Also, users should be able to pin their group so it stays on the top and doesn't get buried with new messages coming in. Take a look at Linkedin messaging. There could be other variations and I can help with the design if you need it. Use Case: In The Power Course, we divide participants into teams of 6-7 people. Each team organizes its weekly meet-up and communicates with some openness about its transformations and roadblocks as the group is small and cozy. Sometimes people are late or absent from their weekly meetings, and they want to communicate with their team members. The team becomes like a small family and remains together for a long time. We are committed to moving to Skool and preparing for it. Today we use a combo of Thikific+Slack for the management of our course and community. We want to abandon both in favor of Skool. But without this feature, we will need to ask people to create WhatsApp groups. Some of our participants are hesitant to use WhatsApp. Thank you for considering.
The new metrics feature is really interesting and helpful, but I'm wondering if it's possible to actually remove our employees from that metrics. In our bigger group 400+ it might not have such a big impact, if 5-7 people are showing up, but in our smaller mastery group >100 this might influence the numbers. But this probably also means that we would need to assign a certain role to them firsthand.
Hey Skool Team, I would love an option to add titles to peoples names... For example, I want my students to know who the Tech support guy is in the group. If we could add something to their name like "Bill Stevens (Tech Support)" my students would know who to reach out to and who I have assigned that role. Same things with student coaches..."Sarah Smith (Coach)" And this could go on for all types of roles! Is this a possibility? Changing names on Skool is super hard, so I feel like admins should be able to do something like this for certain roles. I would love this feature!
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 Guys, We're building out our own Skool community and loving every second of it! I have a question about file uploads. Is there a way or feature for our community members to upload a file after completing an action item for us to review? Is this a thing? Ie; someone complete Sam's choosing your niche worksheet and uploads it for the Consulting.com team to review? If not - are there any suggestions on what we could do?
It would be great if inside the course itself, we could have custom text that the members can see regardless of which module they're in as a sort of overview for the content. We are currently using Classroom to give provide value for our loan officers, and for a second, I thought the description inside the course settings would show somewhere along the menu of the course (from a member's point-of-view). I think this would function great if you need to have to have a bigger overview of the course itself. If only one post in the community linked to the course (with an overview describing the course), the post would get diluted. In my case, I want the members to have easy access to certain links they can access to at any point in the course.
I know a lot of people have requested this already. I just wanted to write about it as well. Although I personally try to stay away from my phone as much as possible, all of my group members are ALWAYS on Facebook groups on their phones. I bet it would increase engagement massively to have the app, since everyone is on their phones.
If the messages are more I would like to have a function to sort by the oldest still open message to be able to answer them first. If there are more messages and I have to scroll all the way down every time, it takes a lot of time and is cumbersome.
Even if I write in a welcome post that an introduction post is to be made as a new post, it happens again and again that group members introduce themselves as a comment under my post. Would it make sense to be able to turn off the comment function in postings? Or does anyone have another idea/suggestion on how to better guide the members so that they write their idea as an independent posting?
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
I've only scanned a few posts, but are there any plans to have live video a la Zoom video chat (and archivable for replay). E.g., maybe as a paid add-on, so that we can have one-on-one coaching calls or group calls?
Hey everyone, do you think it will be possible to add sub-sets to "Sets" when creating our course? Example: Set: Week 1 Sub set: Mindset Modules : vid1, 2, 3 etc Sub set: sales psychology Modules: vid 1,2,3... Set: Week 2 .. .
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.
Hey, it would be great if you could add the option to translate button texts. I know that a complete translation would be time consuming, but if there was an option to translate by myself, i would be fine with that. Thanks! By the way: i am a new customer & also wanted to find out how your customer support is :-)
Would be cool to be able to enable a power search feature that can detect synonyms like google search. For instance on google search if you input "How to cook food" it may pull up a result like "How to bake a recipe" I'm trying to build a huge archive of transcripts for technical software information but it won't quite work unless there are more power features to the search tool like google.
