How to Export Discord Chat Logs History Easily

Discord is a popular messaging platform that allows users to communicate with others through direct messages and server chats. However, Discord does not have a built-in feature to save chat logs. Fortunately, there are third-party tools available that can help you export your Discord chat history easily. In this article, we will explore two methods to export Discord chat logs on both browsers and desktops.

Using Discordmate Chrome Extension (For Chromium Browsers)

If you are using Chrome or any Chromium-based browser, you can use the Discordmate extension to export your Discord chat history effortlessly. Here's how:

  1. Install the Discordmate extension from the Chrome Web Store.
  2. Open Discord on your browser and log in if you haven't already.
  3. Open the direct messages chat or any server chat that you want to download.
  4. Click on the extension icon at the top right corner and select the Discordmate extension to begin exporting the chat.

  10. Click on the Export button to download the Discord chat history.

To view your downloaded messages, open Excel or Google Sheets, select File > Open, and choose the downloaded Discord chat history CSV file. You will be able to see all your messages in the spreadsheet.

Using Discord History Tracker User Script (For Desktops and Browsers)

The Discord History Tracker is another useful tool that allows you to export Discord chat history on both desktops and browsers. Here's how you can use it:

  1. Install a user script manager extension like Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey.
  2. Once installed, open the Discord Chat History User Script page.
  3. Click on the Install button to install the user script.
  4. Open Discord in a browser and open any chat. You should see a DHT icon at the top right corner. Click on it.
  5. This will display a new bottom bar menu in Discord.
  6. Click on the Start Tracking button to track all the messages.
  7. It will automatically stop tracking once it reaches the start of the chat. Alternatively, you can click on Pause tracking to stop the recording process.
  8. Once you're satisfied with the tracked messages, click on the Download button to download the messages in a text file format.
  9. You can use the Discord History Tracker Viewer to view the exported chat in a clean layout.
  10. Open the Viewer and click on the Load file option at the top left. Then select the downloaded text file.
  11. You will be able to see the chat in a Discord-style layout with profile pictures, usernames, timestamps, and more.
  12. Note that the Viewer does not save the file, so you need to load the file again to access the chat history.

These methods provide convenient ways to export your Discord chat logs for future reference or archiving. It is important to respect the privacy of other users and not share the chat logs publicly without their consent.

Apart from exporting chat history, there are other Chrome extensions and bots available that can enhance your Discord experience with additional features and functionalities. Explore these options to make the most out of Discord.
