How to set up & manage roles
Setting up roles and permissions is one of the most important parts of organizing your server.
In Guilded, a role refers to a set of permissions that are associated with a name. The default role is called Member, which provides necessary permissions for activities such as chatting, voice, and forums, but does not have any administrative powers. If you require more specific permissions for certain members, you can create new roles.
As a server owner, you will automatically have the Captain role with full permissions to manage your server. You can then create new roles with different permissions to meet the needs of your server. The following steps will guide you through the process of creating a new role.
Creating a new role
- Navigate to Settings > Roles.
You can think of the role with the icon as the "base" role for all members of your server. This role cannot be removed, but it can be renamed to something that better reflects its purpose in your server.
- Select Add another role.
- To create a new role, give it a name and select a color from the color palette or create your own using the color picker. By default, a new role will have a transparent color, but you can also choose or create a gradient role color to make it stand out.
Using transparent roles in your role hierarchy is a useful way to maintain the color of your name from roles that are lower in the list. By assigning a transparent color to a role, it will not overwrite the color of your name from other roles, allowing for a clear and organized visual representation of your roles.
- Here we renamed the new role Initiate and chose a gradient role color.
