How Do I Add More Channels to My Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Discord is a popular communication platform that allows users to create and manage their own servers. One of the key features of Discord servers is the ability to add different channels for specific topics or purposes. In this tutorial, I will guide you through the process of adding more channels to your Discord server.

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

To add more channels to your Discord server, you need to have administrative privileges. Once you have the necessary permissions, follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord: Launch the Discord application on your device.
  2. Select Server: Choose the server where you want to add more channels. Click on its name from the left sidebar.
  3. Access Server Settings: At the top left corner of your screen, click on the server name to open a dropdown menu. From there, select “Server Settings”.

Step 2: Creating a New Channel

Now that you are in the server settings, it’s time to create a new channel for your server.

  1. Select “Channels”: On the left sidebar of the Server Settings page, click on “Channels”.
  2. Add Channel: Under the text channels section, click on the “+ Create Channel” button.
  3. Name Your Channel: Enter a name for your new channel in the designated field. Make sure it accurately represents its purpose or topic.
  4. Select Channel Type: Choose between “Text Channel” or “Voice Channel” based on your requirements.

    For this tutorial, we will focus on creating a text channel.

  5. Set Permissions: You can customize the permissions for this new channel by managing roles and permissions. This step is optional.
  6. Create Channel: Click on the “Create Channel” button to finalize the creation of your new channel.

Step 3: Organizing Channels

As your server grows, it’s essential to keep your channels organized and easily accessible. Discord provides several options for organizing your channels.


If you want to group related channels together, you can create categories. Here’s how:

  1. Select “Channels”: On the left sidebar of the Server Settings page, click on “Channels”.
  2. Add Category: Under the text channels section, click on the “+ Create Category” button.
  3. Name Your Category: Enter a name for your category that describes its contents or theme.
  4. Add Channels to Category: Drag and drop existing channels into the newly created category to organize them. You can also create new channels directly within a category by clicking on “+ Create Text Channel” or “+ Create Voice Channel”.

Channel Order:

You can also change the order of your channels within a category or rearrange them across different categories.

  • Rearrange Channels: Click and hold on a channel, then drag it to the desired position within its category or across categories.
  • By following these steps, you can easily add more channels to your Discord server and keep them organized. Whether you need separate channels for different topics, roles, or voice communication, Discord provides a flexible platform to cater to your needs.

    Remember, the key to a successful Discord server lies in effective organization and clear communication. So go ahead and create those channels!
