How Do I Copy Messages From One Discord Server to Another?


Heather Bennett

Discord is a popular platform for communication and collaboration among gamers, communities, and teams. If you find yourself needing to copy messages from one Discord server to another, there are a few methods you can use. In this tutorial, we will explore different approaches to achieve this goal.

Method 1: Manual Copy-Paste

If you only need to transfer a small number of messages, the simplest method is to manually copy and paste the messages from one server to another. Here’s how:

  1. Select the message: Hover over the message you want to copy until three dots appear on the right side. Click on the dots and choose “Copy Message Link.

  2. Paste in the other server: Go to the Target server and paste the copied link into any text channel. Discord will automatically expand it into a quote box with all the message details.

This method works well for transferring individual messages or small conversations between servers.

Method 2: Using Discord Bots

If you need to transfer a larger number of messages or even entire channels, using a Discord bot can greatly simplify the process. Here’s how:

  1. Create a bot: If you don’t have a bot already, go to the Discord Developer Portal, create an application, and then add a bot user under “Bot” settings.
  2. Add the bot to both servers: Generate an invite link for your bot with appropriate permissions and add it to both servers.
  3. Grant necessary permissions: Ensure that your bot has read access in both servers and write access in the Target server where you want to copy messages.
  4. Use a bot command: Depending on the bot you’re using, there may be specific commands to copy messages. For example, with the popular bot MEE6, you can use the command “m!copy [channel name/ID]” to copy messages from one channel to another.

This method is more suitable for transferring large amounts of messages or even entire channels between servers with ease.

Method 3: Export and Import Using Discord Apps

If you want to preserve message history and maintain the original formatting, exporting and importing using Discord apps is a great option. Here’s how:

  1. Export server data: Open the server settings in the source server, go to the “Overview” tab, and click on “Server Settings.” Under “Server Overview,” click on “Download Server Data” to save it as a JSON file.
  2. Create a new server: In your Target server, create a new text channel where you want to import the messages.
  3. Import server data: Open your Target server settings, go to the “Overview” tab, and click on “Server Settings.”

    Under “Server Overview,” click on “Import Server Data.” Choose the previously downloaded JSON file and select the text channel created in step 2 as the destination.

This method ensures that all messages are preserved along with their original formatting and attachment links. However, keep in mind that it only works when you have administrative access to both servers involved.

In Conclusion

In this tutorial, we explored different methods to copy messages from one Discord server to another. Whether you prefer manual copy-paste, using Discord bots, or exporting and importing server data, choose the method that suits your needs best. Remember to consider the number of messages you want to transfer, formatting requirements, and your access level on both servers.

Discord provides various options to facilitate seamless communication and collaboration across servers. With these methods at your disposal, you can easily transfer messages and maintain continuity across different communities or teams.
