How can we improve Discord?

In-Chat Buttons for Bots

Give bots the ability to create 'buttons' (clickable text) that performs an action; either making the user send a command, or perhaps sending an event to the bot.

This would allow bots to display links for people to click that performs an action.

    Buttons in embeds for bots. Basically when user clicks button, then it would do specific event for bot.

  • a few of the dead sexy bots on here already do, Neko Chan being one, they utilize emoji reactions to give you a GUI of sorts but still keeping the flow of data as text (it kind of always is anyway) and simple, put emoji X here, look for increase in emoji X, or something like that, it's really beautiful to see as a interface tbh, and i'm trying to get the creator to add that to every function of the bot (or almost anyway) so that other than a few commands, everything can be done by mouse

    (Warning, Google translator!!! :3 )
    On many servers there are bots using text commands. Why not make the chat menu on the right button to add fast commands?
    An example for "!!!play <url>" the owner can create a button "Launch music ...", and the user only needs to write a link.
    As a result, the chat is sent "!!!play <link from the user>"

    Where I can see bots, which are using *reactions* as buttons? :)

  • skellskull commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Desperately needed. Bots are so limited because of it compared to Slack. The only option is to use reactions which is: slow, ugly, and goofy to implement.

    While this may be abused by the random bad apple of the bunch, I think it would be extremely helpful for users and devs alike.

    For additional confort of use I think it would be relevant if the bot were to send some sugestions of command under the form of miscellaneous buttons just as :

    After that the user can click on button to execute the command

    Anything that can be abused with a text command can be abused with this, meaning introducing this feature would not increase the rate of bot abuse.

    Yes! Slack has this feature but they make it a pain to use (HTTPS servers only with quiet strict measures). I would love to see this in discord and implemented with the Gateway.

    Allow them to give buttons above the text bar for easy interaction. It would make bots fun, because no typing to remember :D

    Would be great if slack webhook buttons worked in discord with the new webhooks feature!
