Over the last several weeks we have added a lot of new people to our Network Group Discord servers and I thought this would be a great time to share a few tips and tricks for using Discord.
#1 – How am I notified of new posts in my network’s Discord server?
The best way to stay up-to-date on the happenings in your Discord server is to download the desktop app. You will receive a notification anytime a new post is made, an event is created, or a new member joins the server. Click here
to download the app for Windows or Mac.
#2 – How do I create a text channel?
All members of our Discord servers are able to create new text channels. To create a text channel, click on the server's name at the top of the left-hand tool bar and in the dropdown, click “Create Channel”. You can name your text channel anything you like. Some examples of text channels that have been created so far are #programming, #stuff-that-worked, and #upcoming-events.
#3 – Can I invite co-workers to join?
If there are others in your library that would like to join a server that you are a member of, you can send them an invitation link. Click on the server's name at the top of the left-hand tool bar and in the dropdown, click “Invite People”. The link that is automatically generated expires after 7 days. If you would like to send an invitation link that does not expire, click “Edit invite link.” We ask that invitation links only be sent directly to co-workers and not published online to avoid spam accounts in the servers.
