How to Organize Roles in the Discord Member List?

Do you want to organize the roles in your Discord member list? This article will guide you on how to do that in a few easy steps:

  • Open Discord and go to your server
  • Open the server settings
  • Go to “Roles
  • Drag the role categories until you’re satisfied

If you want to separate certain roles from normal members, you need to edit those roles and check the “Display role members separately from online members” option.

Read below to see how that’s done!

1. Open your server

Open Discord and look for your server on the left-hand side of the Discord window. It should be right under the Discord logo.

Once you find it, click on it.

Once you open your server, you’ll see the main chat and all the different categories. To edit the roles, you need to open the server settings.

To do that, click on your server’s name in the top-left corner of the Discord window.

3. Select “Server Settings

Once you open the server settings, you should see a list of all the settings on the left. These include “Overview“, “Roles“, “Emoji“, “Bans“, and more.

Select “Roles” and proceed with the guide.

5. Reorganize the roles

In the new “Roles” window, you’ll see a list of all the defined roles on your Discord server. If you hover your mouse over the role, you’ll see an icon to the left.

Click and hold your mouse over that icon and then move your mouse up or down. This is how you can reorganize your roles in the Discord member list.

6. Edit a role

If you haven’t done this, I recommend separating your important roles from all the other active members on the list.

To do this, you need to edit every role individually. Click on the “pen” icon to do this!

7. Check the “Display role members separately from online members” option

7. Save the changes

After you check the option mentioned above, don’t forget to save the changes! A notification will appear at the bottom of the screen, prompting you to reset or save the changes.

If you close this window without saving, the changes will be reset automatically. Click on “Save Changes” and you’re done!

Conclusion

In short, reordering the roles in your Discord member roles is simple. Go to your server settings, the “Roles” option, and reorder the roles!

Do you want to separate the more important roles from active users in the “Members” list? Check the “Display role members separately from online members” option and save the changes.

Do this for every role you want to separate, and that’s it. If you have questions about Discord roles, comment below, and I’ll reply as soon as possible!

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
