Discord is a popular messaging and voice chat platform used by gamers, communities, and businesses alike. One of the great features of Discord is its server notifications system, which allows you to customize how you receive alerts for various events within a server. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of changing server notifications in Discord.
Step 1: Accessing Server Settings
To change server notifications in Discord, you first need to access the server settings. Start by opening Discord and selecting the server you want to modify the notifications for.
Once you have selected the server, look for the small downward-facing arrow next to the server name on the left-hand side of your screen. Clicking on this arrow will reveal a dropdown menu with several options. Select “Server Settings” from this menu.
Step 2: Navigating to Notification Settings
After selecting “Server Settings,” you will be taken to a new window with a list of options on the left-hand side. Locate and click on “Notifications” from this list to access the notification settings for the selected server.
Bold Text in Discord Notifications
If you want certain parts of your notification messages to stand out, you can use bold text formatting. To achieve this effect, simply wrap your desired text in double asterisks (**).
For example, **Hello! ** will appear as Hello! in your notifications.
Underlined Text in Discord Notifications
If you prefer underlined text over bold text for emphasis, Discord also supports underlined formatting. To underline specific parts of your notification messages, use double underscores (__) around the desired text. For example, __Important__ will be displayed as Important in your notifications.
Step 3: Customizing Notification Settings
Now that you have accessed the notification settings for the selected server, you can start customizing how you receive notifications.
Discord provides a range of options for different types of events, such as mentions, direct messages, and server activity. These options include:
- All Messages: This option will notify you for every message sent in the server.
- Only @mentions: You will only receive notifications when someone mentions your username.
- Mentions & Keywords: In addition to @mentions, this option allows you to set up specific keywords that trigger notifications.
- Nothing: You won’t receive any notifications for this server.
Select the option that best suits your preferences for each category of events. You can also choose to enable or disable sound notifications by toggling the appropriate switch in the settings window.
Step 4: Additional Options
In addition to the notification settings mentioned above, Discord offers some additional options to further customize your experience:
- Mobile Push Notifications: If you have Discord installed on your mobile device, you can enable or disable push notifications specifically for mobile devices.
- Allow Direct Messages from Server Members: By default, Discord blocks direct messages from members of servers that you do not share. However, if you want to allow direct messages from all server members regardless of whether or not you share a server with them, simply toggle this option on.
Using Subheaders in HTML
You can use subheaders in HTML to organize and structure your tutorial content. For example, by using the <h3> tag, you can create subheaders like the ones you see in this article. This helps readers easily navigate through the steps and find the information they need.
Once you have customized your notification settings to your liking, click on the “Save Changes” button to apply the changes.
Congratulations! You have successfully changed server notifications in Discord. Now you can enjoy a more personalized and tailored notification experience within your favorite servers.
Remember, these settings are specific to each server, so feel free to customize them differently for each server you are a member of. Happy chatting!
