Adding a template to an existing Discord server can be a great way to quickly customize and enhance your server. Templates allow you to easily import pre-made settings, channels, roles, and permissions into your server, saving you time and effort. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding a template to your existing Discord server.
Step 1: Accessing Server Settings
To add a template to your Discord server, you first need to have the necessary permissions. Make sure you have administrative privileges or are the owner of the server. Once you have the required access, follow these steps:
- Open Discord: Launch the Discord application on your desktop or go to discord.com in your web browser.
- Select Server: From the left-hand side panel, click on the server name where you want to add the template.
- Access Server Settings: Click on the down arrow next to the server name at the top left corner of the app. This will open a dropdown menu. From this menu, select “Server Settings”.
Step 2: Managing Templates
Once you are in the Server Settings menu, follow these steps to manage and add templates:
- Navigate to Templates: On the left-hand side of the Server Settings menu, click on “Templates”.
- Browse Existing Templates: You will now see a list of templates available for your server. Browse through them or search for specific keywords in the search bar at the top.
- Create Your Own Template (Optional): If none of the existing templates meet your requirements, you can create your own. Click on the “Create Template” button to start customizing your own template.
- Add a Template: To add a template to your server, simply click on the “Add Template” button next to the template you want to import.
Step 3: Configuring Template Options
After adding a template, you can configure various options before applying it to your server. Follow these steps to customize the template:

- Edit Template Name and Description: Click on the pencil icon next to the template name to change it.
You can also provide a description for better understanding.
- Select Channels and Categories: Choose which channels and categories from the template should be imported into your server. You can customize this based on your specific needs.
- Set Roles and Permissions: Configure roles and permissions for different members of your server using the options provided in the template settings.
Step 4: Applying the Template
Once you have configured all the necessary options, it’s time to apply the template to your server. Follow these final steps:
- Review Changes: Double-check all the settings and changes made in the previous steps to ensure everything is as desired.
- Apply Template: Click on “Save Changes” or similar button to apply the template to your server.
- Enjoy Your New Template: Congratulations! The template has now been successfully added to your Discord server. You can start exploring the new channels, roles, and settings.
Adding a template to an existing Discord server is a simple process that can greatly enhance and customize your server. Whether you choose to use pre-made templates or create your own, templates are a powerful tool for saving time and effort in setting up and managing your server.
