Skool office hours is happening in 34 days

Pinned

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? 💰💰💰

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?

@Sid Sahasrabuddhe asked me about text formatting options and I just noticed that some of you just might need some more tipps of what's already possible to highlight text and make certain content more visible for your students. Besides Heading, bold and italic I don't need a lot of features. I love that Skool keep things simple, but for very long text content it might be very helpful. Anyways here some ideas: 1. bullet points are already possible: Press "*" and then "spacebar" 2. You can use emojis like number symbols or colored dots (@Ted Carr 🙏) 3. If you need more emojis, just press "control+command+spacebar" (Mac)

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

A couple of my skool members say that they would like the ability to save posts as "read later", or to mark them as new.

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).

Would be awesome if we could have the same permission settings on calendar events as you do on courses in the classroom.

hey guys, i am confused how to properly use skool when creating an own course / group within here. How do I sell it to people ? Do I have to launch my Website on another plattform ? How do I process payments when using skool ? Highly appreciate some help. I want to launch a course but cant really get the process. How do you all do it ? You have your websites with wordpress or kajabi ? Which payment processing software do you use ?

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?

Migrating my courses will from teachable to Skool. This will cause me to "loose" my sales page. What is everyone currently using? I have used click funnels in the past and I can easily go back and use webhooks to enroll students into the classrooms.

Regarding @Jason Oberg (https://www.skool.com/community/preferred-funnelsales-page?p=a0ebdbec) post I shoot a quick video, what I am using. I have been an elopage user since 2016. elopage was a small German startup and received an investment in 2021 (https://www.eu-startups.com/2021/08/berlin-based-elopage-raises-e32-million-for-its-all-in-one -microservices-platform-for-entrepreneurs). elopage is primarily a payment processor, but it has since gained many more features including a page builder (for salespage, landingpage, squeezepage,…) very similar to Clickfunnels. elopage has additional advantages if you are tired of handling hundreds of invoices every month. You can reduce this to 2 invoices per month with elopage. If you need help or have questions about it, please let me know in the comments.👇 #letsmakeithappen

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.

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.

Currently in our Facebook group we can search and then sort by most recent. One of the big selling points mentioned about Skool is all areas of course/community with one search function. But the search doesn’t seem to have any rhyme or reason to the order of what shows up. Not most liked, most activity, most recent etc… Which hugely limits the functionality. Is there an ETA on when this will be improved? Thank you!

Dear Team Skool, I'm part of a Circle group, and though I much prefer Skool, there are 2 things I must confess I do love about Circle. #1) They allow GIF's. In today's day in age, GIF's are a quick & easy way to express yourself... but more importantly, they're FUN! I use them a lot, and so does everyone on my team. Not having GIF's is a little bit of a buzzkill and makes everything seem a bit more serious & dry... (the screenshot below of the cowboy is actually a GIF someone posted in their Circle post) #2) They allow for bigger photos. Skool's photo size in posts is so small unless you click on it, which makes the text the main focus. But what if I want my photo to be the main focus? Today I posted a screenshot and it's all I really wanted to post. But I had to write a lot of text to convince people to click & open the photo. I think Skool could keep showing their small thumbnail in the 'preview' mode of a post, but when someone opens the post, I'd love to see a full size image (as seen in the Circle post pic)

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.

During office hours, I asked Sam what Skool's marketing strategy will be (Ads, Organic, etc.) and he said 'word of mouth'. And now they've released the affiliate program which is cool BUT... As much as I love Skool... (I use it everyday & have 100+ paying members in my group) And as focused as I am at helping people start their own memberships which Skool *Would Be* perfect for... It's still hard for me to get ppl to A) get people use my Skool affiliate link and B) become Skool users Because of these 3 reasons: 1) There is no benefit for THEM in using my link. Right now I'm telling people if they use my link I'll hop on a 30 min Zoom call w em to set it up... not scaleable. Solution: Give them a longer free trial (or a % discount) for using my link. 2) The Zapier --> Skool webhook integration is 'too advanced' for beginners. Solution: Let us create a basic landing page that lets us take payments directly on Skool. I appreciate that Skool wants to focus on being the best 'after the sale' platform, but a simple checkout feature could get way more people using Skool since it'd make things A LOT more beginner friendly. 3) There is still no webhook for unsubscribing members or 'suspending' them when they fail to pay their membership fee. Out of my 150 members on Skool, at least 10 of them shouldn't be in there but I've yet to remove them cause it's a pain in the a%%. Solution: I'll let @Nick Guadagnoli and @Sam Ovens solve that one ;) LOVE YOU 👆 ❤️ And see you in Skool :)

Hey there, Loving skool. Just have a quick question. I'm about to get my course made up and am wondering what the process is in terms of having people buy the course on a landing page then being accepted by the email add in. Basically just asking if there is a landing page feature or do we need to make a seperate website using or something for acquiring customers then this is the final destination? Thank you.

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!

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?
