When managing a community, creating a virtual workspace, or enabling connection in general, you have to make sure it is efficient. That means you should reduce manual work if it is possible. And it is possible with our new Discord integration. You can now collect data automatically and view the submissions without even leaving Discord. In this article, we will break down what is what this integration brings new and how to enable it.
What is Discord?
Discord is one of the most common applications that communities, gamers, and businesses use for communication. It allows voice and text chat, as well as creating channels, sharing files, and more. Plus, it's free, secure, and works on both desktops and phones. Today, you can find many discords servers for your area of interest, create a server for gaming, or allow your community to chat with each other and reach you as they want.
And now, it is possible to multiply the effectiveness of these features with powerful forms you create on forms.app. With forms.app, you can collect data from members or audiences and find the information whenever you want. Thanks to this new Discord integration, you can get instant notifications on Discord when someone submits a form and even view their responses. But how does this work? Let’s take a closer look.
How does the new Discord integration work?
forms.app is a powerful tool for building forms and collecting data. By simply creating forms, you can accept applications, get feedback, and collect files instead of dealing with every person manually. We have built a Discord bot that will send you a message every time people submit a form. And, you will be able to choose where you want this message to appear and which form fields to see.
It all sounds great, but how long does it take to integrate your forms with Discord? In seconds and without any hassle, of course, like all of our other integrations. All you have to do is follow these simple steps and share your forms with your audience:
1 - Go to Form Settings > Integrations, and then choose Discord:
2 - Connect to your Discord account and add forms.app bot to your server:
3 - Choose a Discord channel and form fields:
4 - Test your integration and make sure everything works just fine:
Use cases and scenarios
Dealing with all people can sometimes be frustrating, even for ever-patient persons. Plus, directly interacting with everyone is extremely time-consuming. Not to mention having disorganized data and searching every bit of detail in different places. It is so easy to get lost among all the information and maybe make mistakes because of it. But with the smart bot of forms.app, it is possible to manage all of the processes much more efficiently on Discord.
Having an efficient report system
In every community, you can encounter scammers, griefers, and people violating the rules of the server. By simply using report form templates, like the Discord report form sample, admins or moderators can easily obtain information in a structured way. This also allows them to act on these reports more quickly and make correct decisions.
Hiring server staff and moderators
Let’s imagine you are hiring a moderator for your server. Reading disorganized texts, trying to pick useful data, and saving them can be really tiring. But you can easily create professional and beautiful forms on forms.app and see the responses in one of your text channels. This will allow you to find the best candidates and reach all of the information in one place. You can use the same method for assigning roles, as well.
Collecting feedback and support requests
If you use Discord as a virtual workplace and handle support requests with a team, then this integration is perfect for you. When your audience submits a form for feedback or support purposes, our smart bot can send the information in selected fields to a channel of your choice so that all of the support team can see it and contact the respondent.
As an all-around form maker, forms.app allows you to accept payment through your forms. This is a great feature that comes with great opportunities. For example, you can accept payments for registration, selling a product, booking a session, and more. With this integration, you can see the orders or who made the payment in one place.
As forms.app, we have a passionate team that works to bring you new features and integrations. Thanks to their continuous work and your trust that drives us, forms.app makes data collection easy as pie for everyone and every business.
