Adding apps to a Discord server is a great way to enhance its functionality and engage with your community in new and exciting ways. Whether you want to add music bots, moderation tools, or custom games, Discord offers a wide range of apps that can be easily integrated into your server. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps of adding apps to your Discord server.
Step 1: Open the Discord Developer Portal
To add apps to your Discord server, you first need to access the Discord Developer Portal. Go to the official Discord website and log in with your credentials.
Once logged in, click on the “Developers” tab at the top of the page. This will take you to the Discord Developer Portal.
Step 2: Create a New Application
Once you’re on the Discord Developer Portal, click on the “New Application” button. This will prompt you to enter a name for your application.
Give it a descriptive name that reflects its purpose within your server. After entering the name, click on “Create”.
Step 3: Configure Your Application
After creating your application, you’ll be taken to its dashboard. Here, you can configure various settings for your app. To add it to your server, click on the “Bot” tab in the left sidebar menu.
Add a Bot
In the “Bot” tab, click on “Add Bot”. This will create a bot user for your application.
You’ll see an option to give it a username and profile picture. Customize these details according to your preferences and click on “Save Changes”.
Generate an OAuth2 URL
Scroll down until you see the section labeled “OAuth2 URL Generator”. In the “Scopes” section, select “bot” from the available options. This will generate an OAuth2 URL for your bot.
Step 4: Add Your App to a Discord Server
Copy the generated OAuth2 URL and open it in a new browser tab. You’ll be prompted to select a server to add your app to. Choose the server you want to add it to from the dropdown menu and click on “Authorize”.
Step 5: Enable App Permissions
After authorizing your app, you’ll be taken back to your server. In the Discord user interface, navigate to your server’s settings by clicking on the down arrow next to its name. From the dropdown menu, select “Server Settings”.
Roles and Permissions
In the server settings menu, click on the “Roles” tab in the left sidebar. Here, you can configure the permissions for each role in your server. Locate the role assigned to your app and ensure that it has sufficient permissions for its intended functionality.
If you want your app to have specific permissions within certain channels, you can configure that as well. Click on the “Channels” tab in the server settings menu and select the desired channel. Under “Permissions”, assign appropriate permissions to your app’s role.
Step 6: Enjoy Your New App!
Congratulations! You have successfully added an app to your Discord server. Your new app should now be visible in the sidebar of your server’s user interface.
Remember that each app may have different configuration options and features. Be sure to explore their documentation or official websites for more information on how to make full use of them within your Discord server.
Adding apps to your Discord server can greatly enhance the user experience and provide new ways to engage with your community. By following these steps, you can easily add and configure apps to suit your server’s needs.
