How Do I Let People Edit My Discord Server?


Angela Bailey

Are you looking to give others the ability to edit your Discord server? Whether you’re collaborating with a team or simply want to delegate some tasks, it’s important to know how to grant permissions. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Open Server Settings

To begin, open your Discord server and click on the server name at the top left corner of your screen. This will open a drop-down menu. From the menu, select “Server Settings” and click on it.

Step 2: Navigate to Roles

In the left sidebar of the Server Settings menu, you will find various options. Look for “Roles” and click on it. Roles determine what each member can and cannot do within your server.

Step 3: Create a New Role

To allow others to edit your Discord server, you need to create a new role specifically for that purpose. Scroll down to find the list of existing roles and click on the “+” button located at the top right corner of that section.

Step 3.1: Name Your Role

A pop-up window will appear where you can name your new role. Choose an appropriate name such as “Editor” or “Admin Assistant”. Make sure it clearly reflects the role’s purpose for easy identification.2: Set Permissions

The next step is setting permissions for this new role. By default, all permissions are turned off for a newly created role. To allow editing privileges, enable relevant permissions such as “Manage Server”, “Manage Channels”, and “Manage Roles”.

After setting the desired permissions, click on the “Save Changes” button to create the new role. You will be redirected back to the list of roles in your server settings.

Step 4: Assign the Role

Now that you have created the role with editing permissions, it’s time to assign it to the individuals who you want to have editing control over your Discord server.

Step 4.1: Find a Member

In the same “Roles” section of Server Settings, scroll down to find a member whom you want to assign editing rights. Click on their name.2: Add Role

A new window will open showing various roles available in your server. Look for and select the role you just created (e.g., “Editor” or “Admin Assistant”).3: Save Changes

To finalize the assignment, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom right corner of that window. The selected member will now have editing privileges as per their assigned role.


You’ve successfully granted others editing privileges on your Discord server. They can now help manage channels, roles, and other settings as specified by their assigned role.
