Configuration

Key: < > = Required [ ] = Optional

Note: The placeholder characters < > and [ ] are not required when running commands.

| = Means "or" bot = Refers to the Suggestions bot administrator = Refers to a user with the Manage Server permission

One of the core components of the bot is the fact that the administrators can configure various aspects of the bot to their liking. From the suggestions channel to DM responses, you can take control of your server's experience.

With Discord's slash commands, it's easy to configure the bot with readable and UI-friendly commands and options.

Configuring the bot is really easy. The format goes as:

  • To view the current configuration, run /config get.
  • To view the information of a specific option, run /config get [option]. The bot will give you a list of all available options to choose from.
  • To set a specific option, run /config <option> <value>.

Here is an overview of all the configurable options. Keep scrolling for more information about each option.

Configuration for Suggestions

Suggestions channel: suggestions
Log channel: suggestion_logs
Dm responses: I will DM users on actions such as suggest
I will create threads for new suggestions
Suggestion logs will be kept in your logs channel.

Suggestions Channel

Usage: /config get config:Suggestions channel (to view) or /config channel:<channel> (to set)

You can either view or set the channel where suggestions will be posted. You will be able to choose from a list of text channels in your server.

Suggestions Logs Channel

Usage: /config get config:Log channel (to view) or /config logs channel:<channel> (to set)

You can either view or set the channel where suggestion results will be posted after a suggestion is approved or denied. The options to pass through follow the same as setting the Suggestions Channel.

DM Responses

Usage: /config get config:Dm responses or /config dm <enable|disable>

You can either view if DM responses are enabled/disabled or enable/disable them if you wish.

When disabling DM responses, the bot won't DM the user on these actions:

  • A suggestion is submitted
  • A suggestion is approved
  • A suggestion is rejected
  • A note is added to a suggestion

Users are also able to configure their own DM settings using the /dm <enable|disable> command. This allows a user to choose their own preferences. However, they cannot override your server's settings.

This means if you disabled DMs via the /config command, the user will not be able to receive them if they tried to enable them.

Suggestion Thread Channels

Usage: /config get config:Threads for suggestions or /config thread <enable|disable> You can either view if thread channels are automatically created or not when a suggestion is submitted or enable/disable the thread from being created.

There are no messages in this thread yet.

At this time, threads are not automatically archived when suggestions are approved and rejected, so you will have to moderate this manually.

Keep Suggestion Logs

Usage: /config get config:Keep logs or /config keeplogs <enable/disable>

When enabled, this configuration allows a suggestion to remain in the channel when approved or rejected vs. the bot being deleting the original message and posting the results to the set configuration channel.
