Methods of Muting Discord Notifications

Discord Notifications not Working for Server Notifications

When it comes to disabling notifications on Discord, the first thing that comes to our mind is muting the server notification. If the notifications are not working, you might have muted it. This will mute all the notifications of the Discord server and undoing it will unmute it.

  • First of all, go to Discord and search for the server that you want to mute. You will get the menu on the left part of the screen. There, you have to right-click. You will see a dropdown menu there. From the list, you have to select Notification settings and click it.


Here, you will get different options to choose from. You will see-

  • Mute Server
  • Server Notifications Settings
  • Suppress @everyone and @here
  • Suppress All Role @mentions
  • Mobile Push Notifications
  • Notification Overrides

One by one, we will explain the details of these so that you can decide which one to pick.

Mute Server

If you go for this option, all the notifications from the server will stop. However, you can decide to mute them for a specific period. You can go for 15 minutes to 60 minutes to 24 hours. Or else, you can plan to mute it until you manually turn it on!


Server Notifications Settings

With this option, you will be able to select the types of notifications that you want to mute. All Messages are there to serve you with the notifications of all the messages on your server. On the contrary, if you settle for @mentions, it will only send you notifications if you are mentioned somewhere. If you do not pick up anyone, all the notifications will be blocked.

Suppress @everyone and @here

When somebody uses @everyone, the notification is usually sent server’s every member. On the other hand, when someone uses the @here command, it notifies the server’s every member that is online at that moment. If you want to mute such notifications, this option is bliss. With this command, you can easily mute the notifications that include @everyone or the ones that contain @here.

Suppress All Role @mentions

When somebody mentions @admin, @mod, or any other such role, it sends notifications to all the Admins or Moderators or whoever is mentioned. If you plan to mute such notifications, you can settle for this option.


Push Notifications

If your phone is connected to your mobile phone, there are times that Discord sends the notification of mentions to your phone. In that case, this option should be toggled. And if it is not, the notifications won’t disturb your phone.
