New Permission: "Assign Roles"

    This would be an awesome feature to have natively in the client. +1 for sure.

     

    OP if you are looking for a way to implement a similar feature to this, you can set up a bot that has manage roles and accepts commands from your moderators. For example, you could script it so that `!addrole @user (Role name/id)` adds the role to a user. That would allow you to log what your mods are doing and also allows them to assign roles without manage roles permission.

    This is a really great idea that I had also thought about. It's always seemed that the "Manage Roles" permission was too broad. Splitting up "Assigning" and "Managing" would be great!

    I like this idea, I would love for it to be implemented into Discord.

    Greatest idea I have ever heard, would make it so much easier for moderators on a server!

    Would definitely need this one.

    Permission to give permission specified roles.

    Possibly it is Vasp but they wouldn't be able to use the Discord interface to do so. Not everyone is good with chat commands to setup roles. I prefer to use the interface as it is easy to just quickly skim over it to see any permissions that might be off or on which shouldn't be. 

    It would be a good addition to split those permissions.

    That is one astonishing idea you got there. Not only will mistakes be reduced, but many complications with trollers will be fixed. If this was added it would help out a lot.

    No, currently when you have permission to manage the roles you can only manage the roles below you and I propose that we can define to a role the permission to manage this or that role but not the roles as a following.

    This is a must. In addition to being able to create / edit roles. Giving someone the "Manage Role" permissions allows them unlimited ability to change permissions in a channel even for roles above them, unless the "manage permissions" role in that specific channel is set to X, which you have to do for every channel they have access to.

    This is a great idea.  This would allow low level managers (like Moderators) to be more useful without giving them the opportunity to screw everything up, accidentally or otherwise.

    Agree completely with cristo, I had to assign X to 100 channels on my server because of this.

    I think that would be a really good idea- as someone who owns a server with 200+ users, it could be really helpful to be able to assign this for any new users that join, so the moderators could easily assign roles, without the risk of any role titles being changed etc. I like this idea a lot.

    It's absolutely absurd that this isn't already the case. Not only can they adjust roles beneath them globally, but they can actually go into a particular channel and then give themselves permission that they shouldn't have. Only way around this is to either not assign that permission or to disabled manage permissions in every channel, in which case, what's even the point.

    "Manage Roles" was definitely not thought out well. We need adjust roles.

    Exactly what I came on here to suggest until I saw this post, c'mon Discord! This should have been an obvious permission to have. And I think better wording for it would be "Assign Roles". Cool to see I'm not the only one wanting something like this.

    I tried a workaround to get an similar result. so i created a role "promoter" just over the role i wanted them to promote to. unfortunately if i a assign the role to someone with a higher role, the "promoter" role will also allow them to promote to the higher roles. 

    Even the workaround using the role hierarchic system doesnt work because it doesnt allow you to edit roles just to this new role. :(
    So we definitely need some  better role management. I want other people helping me to assign roles to new members but i dont want them to edit and promote to every role!

    vote for this :)

    This would be incredibly useful for several communities I am a part of

    This should be a fundamental Permission. I only one one or two people creating roles, but many community leaders can assign roles to delegate that task. Please split these out as two Permissions!

    I would love to have that functionality, have been searching it forever because I expected it to exist since there are so many settings.

    Also I could have overlooked and navigated them way easier if the categories were collapsible or sepated in tabs.

    (I'm aware that you can bypass this to some degree by creating specific channel roles for each role, but doing it this way creates complications for our muted role, which then can't bypass the specific channel roles that each role would otherwise have. Sorry for not adding this in the original post.)

    I also wish they would add a toggleable permission to only allow them to edit / add and remove people to certain roles.
