How To Assign A Role To Everyone On Discord

In Discord you can communicate with your friends or manage a large community of people. Discord also gives you variety of tools and features that you can use to manage them. One of these feature is Discord roles.

Using Discord roles, you can run your server very efficiently and smoothly. You can assign different roles to different members to give moderation and other abilities. In this post, we will talk about Discord roles, and how you can assign a role to members.

What are Discord roles?

Roles are like authority power given to the members of the server. By assigning a role you grant specific privileges to the member, to do a certain type of task in the server. Assigning a role also helps you to focus on other important tasks.

Once you assign a role to any member, that member will appear on the top of the normal users and will have a special color specified with their name based on the role they have.

How to assign a role

  • Open the server on which you want to add a role.
  • Go to the “Server Settings” option.
  • Click on the “Roles”
  • Click on the “Create Role” button.

You have to choose all the members manually to assign the role, or you can use a 3rd party bot like MEE6 or Dyno Bot to auto assign the role to everyone.
