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?
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!
This is super useful for when you want to draw attention to a post in your group, FB has it. Just a Skool notification, doesn't have to be an email or anything. Could also just be for admins so it doesn't get spammed. @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
Hi, looks like there might be an issue with Loom video playback on Skool. Recorded a Loom video so you can see what I am referring to: https://www.loom.com/share/dde146f2084c40c99609d07388d10d81 Or maybe it's on my end, no idea. Noticed this happening last few days or so.
@Sid Sahasrabuddhe Posted this in Uplevel, but wanted to share here as a feature request. The day after I posted this, I sold a client on a 6 month membership to my program/community access/support, and lifetime access to videos, so it would be awesome if the below were implemented 🙏 After thinking about the Wetube announcementyesterday, reading through the comments and mostly understanding the direction things seem to be headed, it seems like the following would be helpful in orienting the Skool platform towards those goals: 1. Having the ability to remove the Community, Calendar, & Leaderboard tabs from a user's permissions. This would allow for someone to have access to the course material (for possible low ticket content-only access, or as continued access to Classroom but removal from the Community section after a set amount of time) for life, without adding to the overall community group numbers. Similar to Clickfunnels membership funnels. Also, if someone wanted full access it could be turned back on (an upgrade fee). Doing this would solve a lot of the growth problems. 2. Having the ability when adding a member, to set an automatic removal date (from Skool altogether, or only from the 3 above-mentioned sections), so that reminders wouldn't have to be set to remove members at certain times, based on what "full program access" timeframe was offered (3 months, 6 months, 1 year, etc)
I'm used to host big challenges 2-3 times a year. Is it possible to use a Skool for that, then archive the skool (keeps the members while the content is not accessible) and later during the year revive it ? Or do I need to create a Skool for 1 month (duration of the challenge), then delete it and when I host a new challenge I create a new Skool and members have to request access again? Is it easy to delete/close a skool if I have to do it multiple times a year?
I haven't sent out an email broadcast in months. This week there has happened to be two announcements that need to be broadcasted. Very frustrating to write out the whole post only to be told I can't broadcast it.
Hey all. I've started using Skool as a front-end marketing group instead of a back-end product group. Is anyone else doing this? Attached is the model I'm using. The key differences to the model most in here use: - No ads - No direct outreach - No sales tactics - No content treadmill - Focus on audience building (specifically YouTube) - Focus on community - Using Skool as a marketing community, not product community I ran the new model past Sam and he said he liked it! I also asked for permission to post this here and he said yes. I think this new model is a game-changer for getting to $100k/m profit. I know it's quite difficult to get the full picture from the image, so if you need more info then just comment "Loom" and I'll send you a Loom fully explaining the model. Hope it helps.
Hey team, Question for those running a coaching program with skool… How are you managing users that have completed their coaching time? Are you leaving them in the group and changing training access or are you moving them to a different group or different training platform? I’m currently offering a 3 month program, Facebook group + searchie as membership… I use addevent for calendar reminders and manage users through there. After our 90 days our clients keep lifetime access to content, and they get phased out of the active coaching FB group.
Someone in my community is asking if they set up a community on Skool, and you guys don't like what they post, will you ever ban a Skool? They believe in freedom of speech, and want to know that people can say what they truly think without fear of getting banned.
Liam asked a great question here so I thought I'd make a video showing you how to: - Automatically give members access to skool when they sign up - Have a VA remove members access when their payment fails - Easily & ethically allow members to cancel their subscription Resources mentioned in the video: - Sam's instructions - My script & jotform If you have any Q's, post em down below :) Note: I forgot to mention... In the welcome email someone receives when they sign up for my program is also a link to the cancellation form so they never need to ask me for it.
Hey Fam! Just wanted to check to see if there had been any updates or posts I may have missed regarding scheduling posts on the community tab? I like to create Quick Tip posts and would love to batch them in! Thanks for all your hard work @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe @Nick Guadagnoli @Alex Siegel
Does anyone here host a paid membership community on Skool? I love the simplicity but wonder if it has the complexity to serve at larger scale, rather than small groups? My biggest concern is posts/members getting lost within the content and I can't see people using the filtering sufficiently...
Could you please add an email search feature? Email is the only unique identifier for a member and can be used to match Skool members with payments from my payment processor and CRM. I really like the Skool platform ( I have 3 paid memberships now for my communities) however email search feature is standard on all other membership platforms and it is really helpful, I feel like its a must have feature. It's been over a month since I first posted about this necessary feature and several months since I requested it on one of the monthly office hour sessions. Everyone agrees that this feature is a must. Please please update this. I honestly don't understand how this is not a feature from the beginning. Approving requests is such a pain without an email identifier. We need all member profiles to include their email.
I'm wondering if you can set it so I can create a category that goes only with a certain member level access, that way my advanced members comments are not shown in the entire group if the person is not at a certain member level.
When students join, they see the levels system in our platform. It makes sense to have The group owner (me) and our coaches at the highest level. We're in a position of authority and it's a subtle thing to show that to new students. Opinions? @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
Is it possible to turn off members being able to see when other members were last active as well as how much of the course they have completed? (If not, can this please be considered as a future update). Thanks.
