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?

@Andrew Kirby stopped by Skool HQ the other day to hang out. We talked about Skool for 6 hours. He's doing some interesting things with his free group "Synthesizer School". He basically funnels his audience (social, email list, etc.) to his free group + mini-course. He builds a relationship with his audience in the group, and occasionally promotes his paid course. It works! The funnel: Audience → to Community → to Customers. Anyway... I got Kirby to create a "Free Group Funnel" mini-course sharing his process. If you have any questions, comment below, and I'm sure Kirby will help. Enjoy!

Hey team! We just added some new gamification features. The idea is to surface and reward the people who add the most value by helping others. Here's how it works: • Points — whenever somebody likes your post/comment, you get 1-point. • Levels — your level will show as a blue dot with a number in it on your avatar and profile. As you get more points, you start to level up. • Leaderboards — the members who gained the most points in the last 7-days, 30-days, and all-time will show on the leaderboards tab here. • Gems — group admins can award "gems" to posts/comments that are of exceptional quality. Awarding a gem makes the post/comment stand out so others are more likely to see it and users can use the "Gems" filter to find admin curated highlights from the community. • Prizes — with these new features you can offer prizes to members that appear in the top 10 to reward top contributors and incentivize the right behavior. This isn't a "feature", but something we've noticed works well in other communities. We recommend offering prizes in your community! Let the games begin!

Hi team! We just deployed several new features! 🔥 (see screenshots attached for directions) 1. Action Items - We've provided a specific place to list action items within your course modules. This should help your students learn by taking actions specific to your course materials! 2. Video timestamps - Now you can add timestamp links to your classroom module descriptions, which will jump to a desired place in your video. This works with YouTube, Vimeo, and Wistia, and is ideal for navigating longer videos. 3. Emojis - We've added an emoji picker for posts, comments, and replies on desktop. Just a simple way to make communicating more fun! Thanks again for all the feedback and suggestions in this skool. We're always glad to hear from you! Cheers, Nick G

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!

Hi Team! Just wanted to let you know about a few improvements we’ve just implemented for classroom. 1. Turn off discussion for a course module - If you don’t need discussion and post references at the bottom of a particular course module, you can easily turn them off in the edit section for that module. 2. Duplicate course modules - If you spend time creating similar course modules, you can now speed things up by simply duplicating an existing one! Just copy the module, change the things you need, publish, and save! Good for daily QA call uploads, recurring content, etc. 3. Mobile - Go to next button. On mobile, when you click “Mark as Done” - we’ve provided you with a “go to next” link for a quick transition to the next course module. 4. Remembering the last course module you were on. When you leave and then revisit classroom, you’ll be back at the module where you left off, so you can quickly get back to learning. Hope you all enjoy! Please continue to send us your feedback and any issues that you see. Your response is always much appreciated.

We just pushed a new update — Contextual Members Search — now you can search for members by name or keyword. Want to see if there’s anybody in the group in the real estate niche? Search for “real estate” and we’ll show you the members who match! This is a surprisingly powerful feature. You may have seen posts in the FB group saying: “Is there anybody in here in the X niche?” Yeah, this solves that.

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? 💰💰💰

Now you can see where people are in the world and what personality type they are. These are two simple yet powerful things to know about other users in your groups. They also play a role in helping members find accountability partners, or local meetups. You can add your location and Myers Briggs type to your profile in the user settings page.

Just pushed an update — Members List — now you can see how many people are in the community, who they are, and who’s an admin or moderator. Click the “38 Members” in the community description section to see the full members list. As part of this update we “gated the community” — new users must request access by clicking the “Join Group” button, they will then be added to a “Membership Requests” list so an admin can approve or decline them. In both approve/decline cases, the user will receive an email notifying them. Also, users can be promoted to “Moderators” or “Admins” by other admins from the member's list. Users can also be “Removed” or “Banned” from the group.

Today we shipped a bunch of "admin side" features — things that allow group admins to edit their group settings and change the way it looks and feels. Group settings are broken into three sections: • General — here you can edit the group name, description, initials, color, privacy, group icon, and cover photo. Initials and color are used as the group icon if you don't upload an image. (see image 1). • Rules — here you can add, edit, reorder, and delete your groups rules. Rules contain a title and an optional description. You can have up to 10. (see image 2). • Categories — here you can add, edit, reorder, and delete your groups categories. Categories contain a title, color, and an optional description. You can have up to 10. If you delete a category that contains posts, you can bulk migrate them to another category before deleting. (see images 3, 4, and 5). To access these features, you must be the admin of a group. I know that isn't you right now, but it will be soon enough! This gives you a peak of what the admin side of groups looks like.

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?
