Add way to search/jump to specific member in member list



  • Frozwald

    I agree that it would be nice to have a way to search for names in the chat. Usually, I just want to find my own name to see which role(s) I have since I have joined servers where this changes occasionally, and I lose track of where I sit in the members list.

    I would want to be able to view people's profiles directly from the search results as well for various reasons, primarily to check my roles. If you can set a nickname though, you can just pick one temporarily to make the scrolling easier.

    I use discord as the main platform of communication for a non-profit organization that I run. Scrolling through a name list of over 250 people to assign roles is a hard job to do. Therefore, I think Discord should add a search box to find and interact with members.

    If you have the necessary permissions to go into Server Settings > Members you can search for users by name. Additionally, though not specific to your example, you can also filter the members by role


    Additionally, if you turn on the welcome announcements, it'll tell you when someone joins and their username will be clickable and roles can be added that way

    My opinion is that discord have worst UI what there is in any messaging software. It is just mesh. Example you cannot send private message by clicking user at conversation -> I must open member list and click user from that list. BUT there is no way to search from that list. So when you have 100 names and 10 groups in channel it usual takes minutes to find that person. 

    And this is just tip of iceburg but one of things why I just have use that. I cannot understand what kind monkeys have done that software.

    If they have not blocked you, send them a friend request, look at the friend request. Click the three dots and click message. you're in contact with them now

    3 years and it's still not a thing :facepalm: Add the "super usefull" invisible scroll on its side, 2px wide, to the very nice UX and the frustration is granted.
