Make sure that your tickets module is enabled before configuring the tickets module (!module tickets to enable, and !module list to see if it's enabled).

Setting Up Tickets Module

The command used for setting up the tickets module is pobox, which has a set of other subcommands that allows you to edit the module's current settings without the need to remember several commands. The tickets module allows for a modmail system in which your community members can interact with your staff about issues, suggestions, reports, etc.

The list below details the minimum needed permissions in order for the tickets module to function:

  • View Channels
  • Send Messages
  • Embed Links
  • Manage Channels (to open and close ticket system channels)


As previously stated, this is the only command needed for the configuration of the tickets module. The other commands within the tickets module are solely used for moderation purposes, aside from !send

Make sure that your tickets module is enabled before configuring the tickets module (!module tickets to enable, and !module list to see if it's enabled).
