Adding a Discord online members widget to a dashboard – no code required
Though originally designed for gaming, it’s no secret that Discord has been adopted as a communication tool among many companies worldwide. In an era of remote working, Discord’s voice channels helped teams collaborate and work together as if they were not distant at all. Sometimes, Discord is even used to bridge the gap between the company and the customers: open servers can be used for things such as collecting feedback or even building communities around a product.

2 Steps to Add a Discord online members widget to a dashboard – no code required
1. Create an embeddable HTML code for your base.
Go to one of your servers in Discord. Now, click on the server’s name in the top left to open a menu, then click on Server Settings. Next, go to the Widget option. Here, you’ll need to activate the widget by clicking on the switch next to “Enable server widget”. You can also select a specific channel for generating invites. Now, all you need to do is copy the code snippet in the “Premade widget” box.
2. Create an app to see the base.
- Embedded: click on the + icon, then Embedded. Name it “Widget”, then paste the code you got in step one.
Resize the component to your liking and save.
You will now have a widget that shows the members of a server and current active users. If your app is public, this will be an awesome way to promote the server, and knowing that it has an active community will encourage new members to join!
