When adding a bot to your server of Discord , you can automate many tasks such as monitoring member behavior, generating memes, and managing customer service queues. We will show you how to add one to your server.
First, enable the “Manage Server” permission
To add a bot to your Discord server, you need the “Manage Server” permission for your user account. Your server administrator can grant this permission to your user role from the server settings menu (steps on how to do this are below).
If you already have this permission, you can go to next section .
To enable this permission using an administrator account, start Discord in a web browser on your Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer. You can use the Discord client, but since you will have to log into Discord on the web to add a server anyway, we suggest you use the web version.
On the Discord site, in the sidebar on the left, select the server you want to add a bot to.
Your server screen will open. On this screen, next to your server name in the upper left corner, click the down arrow icon.
From the down arrow icon menu, select ‘Server Settings’.
On the “Server Overview” page that opens, in the left sidebar, select “Features”.
Select the user role that you would like to grant permission to add bots to.
On the “Edit Role” page, at the top, click on the “Permissions” tab.
In the “Permissions” tab, activate the “Manage server” option.
A message will appear at the bottom of the page. Click “Save Changes” in this message to save the changes just made.
And this is how you allow a user to add bots to your Discord server!
Next, find a Discord bot
If you haven’t already, it’s time to find the bot you want to add to your Discord server. There are some Discord bot repositories online that offer hundreds of free Discord bots to add to your server.
Some of these repositories are Carbonitex , Top.gg and GitHub . Feel free to use any of these sites, or you can even create your own Discord bot .
Finally, add the selected bot to your server
When you have decided on a bot that you would like to add to your server, you can start the adding process. On the site where you found the bot, you will see an option that says “Add bot to server”, “Invite” or a similar option. You will use this option to add the bot to your server.
As an example, we will install the “April” bot from the Top.gg site. To do this, access the April bot website in a web browser on your computer. On the right of the web page, click “Invite”.
The site will open a new tab in your browser. In this new tab, click the “Add to Server” drop-down menu and select your Discord server. Then click “Continue”.
Discord will display a list of permissions that will be granted to your bot. At the bottom of this list of permissions, click “Allow”.
Warning: Giving a third-party bot access to your Discord server may have important privacy implications . Make sure you completely trust the bot’s code and read the privacy policies before giving it access to its server.
Confirm the captcha on your screen.
The bot will ask you to access the details of your Discord account . Confirm this by clicking “Authorize” at the bottom of the page.
The bot will then take you to your site where you can configure various options for the bot. Here, you can specify how the bot should work with your Discord server.
To confirm that the bot has been added to your server, go to your server on Discord. On the right of the server screen, you will see your newly added bot in the user list. This confirms that the bot was added successfully.
And this is how you can start automating tasks on your Discord server by adding a bot!
