Getting Started

How to get started using Eventcord

Let's get started!

For karaoke to work, it requires you create a role you can assign to users you trust to run karaoke on your server. This role is referred to as the master role.

Inviting Eventcord to your server

To invite Eventcord to your server, go to eventcord.xyz/invite. Confused on any permissions Eventcord is asking for? Check out permissions on the FAQ. For the bot to work optimally and to future proof your server, please provide it with all of those permissions.

Before we get started

If you intend on using karaoke, please ensure to following to avoid members being left with server mutes outside of events:

Checking Permissions

Make sure Eventcord has the Mute Members permission in all voice channels. This may not be the case if you have fancy role hierarchies. Use ;setup diagnose or visit the dashboard to have the bot list out the channels it does not have the Mute Members permission.

Assisted Setup

Eventcord features a setup wizard on the bot's dashboard. The dashboard will guide you along making sure Eventcord works on your server.

You need the manage server permission on your server to configure the bot

Permissions Check

The dashboard's setup wizard will do a check of permissions Eventcord has on your server. If it notifys you of any issues, please resolve them and click "recheck permissions."

Make sure Eventcord has the Mute Members permission in all voice channels. This may not be the case if you have fancy role hierarchies. Use ;setup diagnose or use the dashboard's setup page to have the bot list out the channels it does not have the Mute Members permission.

Set a Prefix

Using the dashboard's setup, you will be prompted to enter a prefix. This prefix will be used to indicate that you are sending the bot a command at the beginning of a message.

If you are setting this up manually, use ;config server prefix followed by your desired prefix.

Keep the prefix short, such as a single special character or a character and a letter

Set an Event Admin Role

The dashboard's wizard will prompt you to select a role as the event admin role. This role determines who can manage events (e.g. start an event). Give this to community members you trust to run community events. The wizard will only let you select roles which currently exist on your server.

Using manual setup, use ;config server role followed by the name of the role (case sensitive)

Beautiful! You are now all set up! Enjoy using Eventcord! If you ever need help, want to stay updated, or just have fun, join our support and community Discord server!

Manual Setup

If you would prefer to manually set up the bot, check out this page on our documentation. Manual setup will still automatically check if you have configured the bot correctly.
