How Do I Group a Discord Server?


Heather Bennett

Discord is a popular communication platform that allows users to create and manage their own servers. If you’re a server owner or administrator, you might find it useful to group your server channels.

Grouping channels can make it easier for users to navigate and find relevant information. In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to group a Discord server using the server settings.

Step 1: Access Server Settings

To begin, open your Discord application and navigate to the server you want to group. On the left-hand side of the screen, you’ll find a list of servers you’re a member of.

Locate the server you wish to group and right-click on its name. From the context menu that appears, select “Server Settings. “

Step 2: Create a Category

Once you’re in the Server Settings menu, click on the “Channels” tab located on the left-hand side of the screen. Here, you’ll see all the existing channels in your server.

Pro Tip: Make sure you have appropriate permissions to create categories in your server.

To create a category, click on the “+” button next to “Categories.” A popup window will appear where you can enter a name for your category.

Step 3: Organize Channels into Categories

Now that you’ve created a category, it’s time to organize your channels within it. To do this:

  • Click and drag an existing channel into the newly created category.
  • Right-click on an existing channel and select “Edit Channel.”
  • In the Edit Channel window, go to the “Category” dropdown menu and choose your desired category.

Pro Tip: You can also nest categories within other categories by dragging them into existing categories.

Step 4: Customize Category Permissions

By default, all channels within a category inherit the permissions set for that category. However, you can customize permissions for individual channels if needed.

To customize channel permissions:

  • Right-click on the channel you want to modify and select “Edit Channel.”
  • In the Edit Channel window, go to the “Permissions” tab.
  • Here, you can adjust individual permissions for roles and users in your server.


In this tutorial, we learned how to group a Discord server using server settings. We explored creating categories, organizing channels within them, and customizing channel permissions.

By grouping your server channels, you can create a more organized and user-friendly environment for your Discord community. So go ahead and start grouping your channels to enhance communication and collaboration!
