Adding the Smashcast bot to your Discord server

in: Discord Integration

You can do this step all at the same time as connecting your Discord account, or separately (or if you have multiple servers to connect).


For instructions on how to link ONLY your Discord account see [here].

  1. After you’ve signed into your Smashcast account, go into your Account > Connections page and click on the Connect beside Discord.

  2. A window will pop-up asking you whether you’d like to link just your account or add a bot as well. Click the “Link and add bot” option.

  3. An oauth window will pop-up next prompting you to sign in to Discord. Sign in with your email address and password (and TFA is applicable, we strongly recommend it).

  4. Next you’ll get a prompt to authorise some permissions.

    1. It’ll ask for permissions to access your Discord username and avatar, access to join servers for you, and which server you want to add it to (you can only add the Smashcast bot to servers which you have Manage Server permissions).

      1. DO NOT uncheck any of the boxes for permissions. I mean you can, but it might cause things to break/not work correctly. I’m not the boss of you but just giving you fair warning.

  5. Once you’re good with that, press “Authorize”.

  6. The Smashcast bot (and it’s matching role) will be added to your Discord server.

  7. After that it’s time to customise the bot a little and add Subscriber and Moderator roles.

  8. If you don’t have them already, add the role names you’d like for your subs and mods - they don’t have to be new roles or those words specifically (I’m looking at you, scrubscribers, crew mates, and big d's :> )

    1. If the Smashcast page doesn’t update automatically, give it a quick refresh and you should find a new Discord section with your server.

    2. Once you’ve selected a Subscriber role you’ll be able to sync your Smashcast emotes to Discord.
