Discord has introduced a range of exciting features, including the ability to watch YouTube videos together. One of the notable additions is the Discord events feature. These events allow you to keep track of upcoming activities within your Discord community. Once created, anyone in your Discord server can join the event if they are interested. Discord will send them a notification at the scheduled time, ensuring they don’t miss out. Events can take place in a stage channel, voice channel, or even in a physical location.
Permissions Needed to Create Discord Events
Initially, only members with admin roles can create events on a Discord server. However, admins can grant this permission to other members with roles such as moderators or even to every member. To enable the “Manage Events” permission for a role, follow these steps:
- Click on the Discord server name, then go to Server Settings > Roles.
- Select the role to which you want to grant the permission.
- In the Permissions tab, scroll down and enable the “Manage Events” permission under Event Permissions.
By following these steps, everyone in that role will be able to create events on Discord.
How to Create an Event on Discord
Once you have the permission to create events, follow these steps:
- Click on the Discord server name at the top left corner and select “Create Event”.
- A pop-up will appear asking where your event will take place. Choose from three options: Stage Channel, Voice Channel, or somewhere else. Select the appropriate channel for the event or add the Twitch channel link if it’s for a Twitch stream.
- Click “Next” and provide details such as the Event name, Start Time, End Time, and Description. If you selected “Somewhere else” as the location, you can also specify the Start Date and End Date.
- Add a cover photo (800×400 size) and click “Next”.
- Preview the event details and click “Create Event”.
Discord will provide you with a link to invite others to join the event. Share this link on your Discord server and other platforms to encourage participation.
How to Join Discord Events
Joining a Discord event is simple:
- Click on the invite link shared by the event creator and click “Accept Invite”. You will join the event directly and receive a notification when it begins.

- A pop-up will display all the events created on the server. Choose the event you want to join and click “Interested”.
After completing these steps, Discord will notify you about the event, allowing you to easily attend.
