How To Make Role Categories In Discord

In this article, I will guide you through the process of creating role categories in Discord. As someone who has been using Discord for a while now, I have found role categories to be a great way to organize and manage roles within my server. So, let’s dive in and explore how you can make role categories in Discord.

Understanding Role Categories

Before we get into the steps of creating role categories, let’s first understand what they are and why they are useful. Role categories are essentially folders that allow you to group related roles together. This not only helps in keeping your server organized, but also makes it easier to manage roles and permissions.

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

The first step is to access your server settings. To do this, you need to have the necessary permissions within the server. Once you have the required permissions, go to the server where you want to create role categories and click on the server name at the top left corner of your Discord window. This will open the drop-down menu.

Step 2: Creating a New Category

Once you are in the server settings, look for the “Roles” tab on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on it to access the role settings. Here, you will see a list of all the roles in your server. To create a new role category, click on the “Create Category” button at the top right corner of the roles list.

Step 3: Naming and Managing the Category

After clicking on the “Create Category” button, a pop-up window will appear where you can name your category. Give it a meaningful name that represents the roles it will contain. For example, if you have roles related to moderators, you can name the category “Moderation”.

Once you have named the category, you can drag and drop existing roles into it. You can also create new roles directly within the category by clicking on the “Create Role” button.

Step 4: Customizing Permissions

After creating the category and adding roles to it, you can customize the permissions for each role within the category. This means that you can set different permissions for each role, allowing you to have fine-grained control over who can do what within your server.

Step 5: Managing Role Categories

Once you have created the role category, you can further manage it by adding, removing, or renaming roles within the category. You can also change the position of the category by dragging and dropping it within the role settings.


Creating role categories in Discord is a great way to keep your server organized and make it easier to manage roles and permissions. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can create role categories and customize them according to your server’s needs. So, go ahead and give it a try!
