Allow "Private" Channels In A Community
Ability to create "locked" channels that are only available to certain members while other channels in the community are open to the members in that group/community. (Like Slack)
iOS/Android app for community
Would be amazing to have a grey label (like lead connector) app that allows people to participate and interact in high level communities. I pretty much never used Skool - but as soon as the app launched? Now I check it regularly. I imagine this would greatly increase community engagement - it can already be a tough prospect to get people away from the main social platforms
To expand the use of Groups in Communities is having notifications so people know there's stuff going on there. They have to be configurable of course. Email, SMS, In App, Mobile?
Event Calendar for Community & Memberships
It would be great to have a group event calendar that people can subscribe to for events that we host in our community.
Live feature inside Paid Community.
The only feature missing to compete with other platforms like Circle or FB groups for paid community is the ability to go Live inside the Community.
Social Planner for Communities
Allow us to schedule post from social planner to the communities just like we can for for facebook groups.
UI / web app update + other improvements
Several major upgrades the communities feature can use: Merge communities with memberships…students should have one domain they go to like learn.domain.com and be able to access both support groups in the communities and courses that they have access to in the memberships web app. That being said, the mobile UI is really not good for the communities feature for viewing and posting in groups or even accessing various different buttons that are hidden. Restricted access. At the moment, just about anyone can sign up for communities with a name, email, and password…no need for payment or even to verify that they have a membership with the school already. Would be great to have a restricted group setting where only people who’ve been granted certain offers can access (or other criteria like certain tags). There needs to be a boundary between people who are part of the school and not.
Events Calendar (Live Stream, Calls, Etc)
Another thing that Facebook groups does nicely that would be awesome is Events with a calendar for members to see it. Even better if it can be integrated with the calendar system we already have but be able to choose to have it available to certain communities. Being able to live stream in the community page seems like a lot but at least provide a link for a calendar to join a live zoom (and everyone be able to see it and book for it).
Direct Message to Community Member
Im currently using a different community that allows for DM to users. As a coach, this allows a more personal experience with my client. Right now I have to talk to me through this channel so 1. It keeps them engaged in the community 2. Provides an audit trail of all our conversations so valuable feedback is not lost.
