Skool office hours is happening in 3 days

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!

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 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?

Thank you to all of our original beta members! Building Skool has been an amazing journey so far and I'm even more excited by what's coming next. We're just getting started! Check out the video below for a quick overview of the product. Enjoy 🎉.

Hey team, today we shipped two new features: Polls — Now you can create polls in your group so members can vote on different options. This is a great way to get feedback and better understand your community. (See an example below). Email broadcast to members — Now group admins have the option to email broadcast new posts to all members of their group. The email sends immediately and it looks like a professional email newsletter. This is perfect for keeping your members updated and building engagement. Let us know what you think about these new features in this poll:

Hey team! Group admins have told us they'd like to see more "engagement" and "life" in their groups. Previously, we sorted the feed by the newest post. The problem was, more people comment than post, so most of the "engagement" was happening at the comment level, and nobody could see it from the feed. This made the group feel kind of "dead". Now we sort by "recent activity" as the new default. If somebody comments on a post, it brings that post back to the top of the feed. We added some blue text to indicate when the latest comment was, and if you read it, the text changes to gray. This way, the group feels much more "alive" and "engaged". Oh yeah, and if an admin awards a "Gem" to a post/comment, that will bring that post back to the top of the feed — this makes gems more useful. Try out the new sort method in the groups you're in, and let us know what you think?

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 added a daily activity monitor to user profiles. Now you have a birds eye view of a member's community activity over time! Posts, Comments, and Likes all count toward activity, and the squares will highlight darker the more active the user is on a given day. Cool for admins to spot trends, and see if a student has become less active and try to get them back to learning! Fun for students self-awareness, and encourages them to participate regularly! Tell us how you'll use it in the comments below. Feedback is always appreciated!

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

Hi everyone! We just added an option to hide/show the skool owner in the home feed. So you can either choose to showcase your own name, or turn it off if you have multiple skool owners. You can find the toggle in Settings > General. Thanks!

Now you can add a shared calendar to your Skool so your members can see what's happening, when, in their local timezone. Members can add events to their personal calendars with a click. If your community does live Q&A calls or live events, this feature is perfect for you! Watch the video to see how it works. Enjoy!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a few small improvements we just made to skool. - Added a filter for “No Comments” so you can quickly find posts that have gone unanswered and help out your members and peers. - Added badges on the user profile preview for “Owner, Moderator, and Admin” so you can quickly get more insight about who is running the skool, who is commenting on posts, and who you can reach out to for help. - Also added the owner of a Skool in the group card, so you can see who runs the skool at a glance. - Added a few simple messages and alerts to help make video attachments and .csv uploads more fault tolerant. Thanks for your continued feedback and help in the Beta group, we appreciate all of your input!

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.

They say good things come in threes, so version 3.0 of Skool is coming in three parts. Part 1 is a complete rebuild of the interface. We did this to optimize for simplicity and speed. Now you can do more stuff, faster, with less complexity — a better experience. If you find any bugs or style issues please report them to us so we can fix them. Parts 2 and 3 will be coming in the next few weeks. We'll update you as they go live. Enjoy!

Hey team! I thought I'd share why we haven't been as active posting and commenting on Skool recently — We're focusing on building "Skool 3.0". So instead of incremental improvements in short cycles (like we've been doing so far), we're making some big improvements over a longer cycle. You're going to love it! As soon as Skool 3.0 is live, I'll announce it here in the Skool Beta group. Till then, we may not be as engaged with discussions, or announcing new features. I wanted to let you know why. Bug fixes will continue to be a #1 priority, so if you find anything please report it to us and we'll fix it ASAP. Happy New Year!

Imagine this: Somebody posts some questionable content in your group. You've got two options: 1. Delete the post (and offend the poster), or, 2. Keep the post (and ruin the quality of your group) Both options suck. So we created a third option — making the post visible to admins only. All you need to do is change the post's category to "Admins only." It will disappear from the group but still be accessible to the original poster and the group admins. This way, the poster doesn't freak out when they can't find their post, and the group quality doesn't suffer. Both sides win. Not only that, but the poster and the group admins can communicate in the comments after it's been marked as admins only - which is perfect for explaining why the post was deleted. It's a powerful feature that can be used in many different ways. Watch the video to see it in action. Enjoy!

Want to pin a post to the top of a specific category? Now you can. When you pin a post we'll ask you if you want to pin it to the top of the category, or category + home. This feature is perfect if you want to write instructions for a category, something like: "How to use the use the Meetups category".

Imagine a category called "Announcements" or "Q&A call recordings". These categories contain posts by admins, but sometimes a member posts their own content in there by mistake. Not anymore! Now you can set posting permissions for categories. There's two basic options: 1. Anyone can post, anyone can view (default) 2. Admins can post, anyone can view Enjoy!

Showing more content for notifications — now you can see what your notifications are about without having to click on them. (image 1). Follow button on post page — now you can follow/unfollow a post with 1-click, and its much more obvious. We separated the "..." action menu from the Follow/Following button too. Change in auto-following logic — when you create a new post, you'll automatically be following it. When you comment on a post, you wont automatically follow that post, because we've found this leads to excessive notifications for things you're not interested about. You will be notified if somebody replies to your comment, but not if another person comments on the post. These changes should result in less notifications, for more meaningful things, with more context to know what each one is about, and more meaningful following of posts without getting spammed. These are just some of the improvements we've got coming to the notifications system! More soon.

As a group admin, you can invite people to your group via email, link, bulk .csv upload, or webhook. The problem was, you couldn't see the people you'd invited until they joined your group. You had no awareness of the pending invites. Now you can see pending invites and resend/revoke them. You can search by email address too. We also made the invite button more obvious. Enjoy!
