How to Transfer Ownership on Discord

How to Transfer Ownership on Discord

Discord is a well-liked chat service that facilitates verbal, aural, and visual interaction among its users. Creating groups, organizing gatherings, and working together on projects are excellent resources.

Owners of Discord servers have unrestricted access to all of the server’s settings, including the ability to create and remove users, assign permissions, create and remove channels, and more. Yet, there are times when the owner must hand up control of the server to another user, such as when the original owner is leaving the server or is unable to do so. 

Look through the process of transferring ownership on Discord, from checking your server settings to starting the transfer and fixing typical problems that arise along the way. 

Checking server settings

Before transferring ownership of a Discord server, you need to check the server settings to identify the current and new owners. Here are the steps to do so:

  1. Access server settings: Log in to Discord and navigate to the server where you want tо transfer ownership. Click on the server name at the top left corner of the screen to access the drop-down menu, then select “Server Settings.”
  2. Check the roles of users: In the Server Settings menu, click on the “Roles” tab on the left-hand side of the screen. This will display a list of all the roles in the server, along with the users who have each role.
  3. Identify the current owner: Look for the role of “Owner” in the list of roles. The user who has this role is the current owner of the server. If you cannot find the role of “Owner,” the current owner has either removed the role оr left the server.
  4. Identify the new owner: Decide who you want to transfer ownership to and ensure they have the necessary permissions to manage the server. They should have a role with administrative permissions, such as “Administrator” or “Manager.”

You can identify the current owner and the new owner of the server and ensure that the transfer of ownership is successful.

Initiating the transfer

You can initiate the transfer of ownership on Discord. Here are the steps to do so:

  1. Initiating the transfer process: To transfer ownership, you need to have the “Owner” or аn administrative role with the necessary permissions. If you have the necessary role, go back to the “Server Settings” menu and click on the “Members” tab on the left-hand side of the screen. Find the user to who you want to transfer ownership, then right-click on their name to open the drop-down menu. Select “Transfer Ownership” from the list of options.
  2. Confirming the transfer: A pop-up confirmation window will appear, asking you to confirm that you want tо transfer ownership to the selected user. Click “Transfer Ownership” to proceed. The new owner will receive a notification that they have been granted ownership of the server.

Transfer of ownership cannot be undone, so make sure you transfer ownership to the correct user.

Troubleshooting

While transferring ownership of a Discord server is a relatively straightforward process, some issues can arise. Here are some common issues that you may encounter and the solutions to those issues:

  1. You do not have the necessary role or permissions to transfer ownership: If you do not have the “Owner” role or an administrative role with the necessary permissions, you will not be able to transfer ownership. You will need tо ask the current owner to transfer ownership or ask someone with the necessary permissions to grant them to you.
  2. You cannot find the role of “Owner“: If you cannot find the role of “Owner” in the list of roles, it may have been removed or renamed. Contact the current owner and ask them to confirm their role or transfer ownership to another user.
  3. The new owner is not receiving the notification: If the new owner is not receiving the notification that they have been granted ownership of the server, ask them tо check their Discord notifications and settings. They may need to adjust their notification settings to receive server notifications.
  4. The transfer оf ownership is not working: If the transfer of ownership is not working, try logging out of Discord and logging back in. Clear your browser cache and cookies. If the issue persists, contact Discord support for assistance.

Conclusion

Transferring ownership of a Discord server can be simple if the right measures are taken and any potential problems are identified in advance. Transferring ownership of a Discord server can go well if you take the time to double-check your server settings, start the process, and troubleshoot the most typical problems that may arise.
