Basic Discord FAQ
Some basic information on using Discord while we're working from home
Once you have discord installed, clicking the second two links will add you to the Discord "Servers"
Servers can be thought of as large overarching groups i.e. WID and Morgridge
In each server is at least one voice channel. To join a voice channel, simply click on the name
Channels can be thought of as subgroups or departments
To disconnect from the voice channel click the icon that looks like a phone with an 'x' below the list of channels
Its recommended that you turn on push to talk for your microphone. This will make it so that you're only heard when you press a key/button
Open settings (gear icon at the bottom of the channel list)
Click "Voice & Video" under the "App Settings" header
Click the box for "Push to Talk"
In the shortcut box, enter the key you would like to use
Note: This should be a key you don't use often. The "~" works well in Windows
Once you have the key entered, click "Stop Recording"
Exit the settings menu
By right clicking on a username, you can see advance options for that account such as:
Adjusting the volume of that account. Useful if one person sounds to loud to you
Send a private DM
Call that person
Tag the person in a message
