Set Up Birthday Bot on Discord [Step-by-Step]

Setting Up Birthday Bot on Discord

Discord is the best way to stay connected with your friends and the gaming community. With Discord, you can easily find and join servers for your favorite games, chat with friends, and more. But for many people, Discord is where they find online friends that becomes an important part of their lives. These friends provide support, laughter, and companionship, and are often there for us in ways that our offline friends may not be. Because of the special role that online friends play in our lives, it's important to keep in touch with them and to celebrate their birthdays. That is why I think that Birthday bot is a useful tool that will remind you the special day for your online friends.

Discord's Birthday bot maintains tabs on your users' birthdays. Using time zones and messages from their customizable birthday role, it reminds everyone of every user's birthdays under this. On a larger server, access can be restricted to users with the required roles thanks to Birthday Bot's innovative trusted role concept. The Birthday bot can also be used to celebrate member and server founding anniversaries.
