Create and Join Events on Discord

Discord added a bunch of features lately like the ability to watch YouTube videos together on Discord. One notable addition is the all-new Discord events. These events can help you keep track of things that are going to happen within your Discord community. Once created, everyone on your Discord server can join the event if they are interested. Discord will notify them at the time of the event so that they can attend. The event can be done on a stage channel, voice channel, or even a physical location.

Here’s everything your need to know about Discord events. Who can create them? How to create Discord events and how to join? And more. Let’s start with permissions needed to create Discord events first.

Permissions Needed to Create Discord Events

By default, only members who are assigned as admins can create events in the Discord server. But the admin can grant that permission to other members with roles like moderators or even to every member on the Discord server. All you need to do is enable the Manage Events permission for the role and everyone who falls in that specific role can create an event on that Discord server.

To enable Manage Events permission, you have to be the admin of that server. If not, you can contact the admin to enable the permission for you.

1. Start by clicking on the Discord server name > Server Settings > Roles and selecting the role to which you want to grant the permission.

2. Here select the Permissions tab, scroll down, and enable the Manage Events permission under Event Permissions.
