    Not sure what you mean ranks. Do you mean roles?

    Yea. I call them ranks cause Im kinda different with the role thing

    TBH, why would you want to copy/paste roles when they should be all different and don't or should not change much. If your changing them often, then seems like a limited thing only a couple of servers would use and not worth adding. I modded and owned a server for over 3 years now and I never seen any server change enough to need that kind of feature.

    would you rather use your hand and copy the permissions repeatedly?

    Again, why are we copying when most Roles are different and why would you need so many that you need that kind of feature?

    its because i have a huge member ship thing and i give them there own roles and i dont want to repeat it you know

    and plus it hurts my hand  doing the permissions over and over again

    Just like I found out about 'clone channel' right when I finished wiping my discord server, aaa. Now I had to add 3 more roles, and having to remove 'all the permissions' just to make the 'role' a 'display status'.

    I could definitely see this being integrated as a role permission, and would work especially well if role trees were ever implemented.

    this is really really important if you have a server that has multiple member style roles to differentiate how they are labeled.

    This would actually be a good feature, as it will allow roles to be made quicker. E.G an Admin/Mod role preset.

    I think they mean to clone roles.

    It would be really helpful as some servers would also want to create plenty of self-assignable color roles for their members

    Cloning roles would really help.

    I'm setting up a server for a motorcycle community which has several motorcycle clubs. Each club has members & admins with exact same roles but I need them to only have access/ roles in their respective clubs. This will allow each club to be private and self govern themselves but at the same time be able to participate in the open channels. I therefore am having to create several roles that are exactly the same for each club. It's painful.

    I'd love that, especially between servers.

    Upvote for this feature.
    However as a workaround, all new roles default to the permissions of @everyone. You could temporarily change it, add the roles, then reset it.

    I agree, maybe even like a `Duplicate Role` button to easily just copy a role/permissions.

    This would be very valuable to us, we've got multiple clans in our server and each is identified by their own role / colour so members know who's in what clan. Permissions are all the same, so when I find myself constantly duplicating work when curating channels.

    One button "make a copy role" next to "delete Role" should do the trick. After pressing the button it's asking you in a new discord window how you would like to call the role.

    i don't see why would you need to copy permissions for that. But an option for cloning roles would be really useful time to time.
    Also maybe after implementing this feature they might stop copying permissions from the @everyone role, every time you create a new role. It's really annoying and causing a f ton of mess when people don't know what they're doing.
    I can't even use @everyone role for my members i had to create my own member role for the people in the server and give no permission to @everyone role because i have lots of rank, achievement and assignable roles, and it's really annoying that everytime you create a new role it's copying @everyone. Assignable roles shouldn't have any permissions they are just name tags. some rank roles are have some permissions like attaching files and they don't need sending, reading message and etc. permissions all over again, the member role is already have those.
    and i can't use a bot to automatically add the member role to new people because it overrides server moderation rules when you give roles to people after they join. so instead i had to create #reservation channel to people to verify themselves. So they can type a custom command like !hi and get their member role. I had to do all these because new roles are unnecessarily copying permissions from @everyone. i mean why would you need to copy permissions from @everyone if everyone already has those permissions.

    I definitely find that useful, especially for RPG servers where all the roles have the exact same permissions (e.g.: @Wizard and @Prince have the exact same role permissions as each other, yet they aren't the same permissions toggled to @everyone).

    Hello! I'm also agree with this suggetion because I have a big server with many channels. It needs very much time to set new roles! Here are some ideas:

    COPY AND PASTE BUTTON: add some buttons below all permissions for copy and for paste. People can click then on copy to copy the permissions of the role and then on paste to paste the permissions to a role.

    Sync Button:

    Create on single button below the permissions. If you click on it you will see a list of all roles which are set in (just like if you click on 'Add new role' button). Then you can choose which role had to be synced. The permissions of the choosen role will be the same then, like the role which hasbeen synced.

    Please add this feature, Discord-Team!

    We do need like a copy and paste for channel permission-  you have have one channel setup the way you want and you just copy then paste into the other channels.  

     

    Some people might have like over 100 channels and do not want to adjust the permission like over 100 times

    I agree tbh I was surprised to discover this had not already been implemented. I use discord for DND groups and I have to use dang near over 100 roles to lock people out of channels and groups, differentiate between class for resource channels etc. My groups also prefer thier own custom colors. Its odd that between myself and my mods we sometimes spend hours setting up new servers to maintain the content of our games and keep them intact away from our 'general discussions' this feature would help immensly def +1 from me
