Hey! Thank you for choosing to use Koal’s services for your group/server. We’re excited to have you within our community/family. Be sure to use this guide to ensure you’re able to understand the procedure on creating a Koal Custom Bot.
Firstly, we advise you to create a bot/application on Discord Developer Portal. Once you have logged in to your Discord account, you should see a page that looks like:

Once you are on this page, you may upload a picture for your application. This is called an “App Icon”. This will not be the official profile picture for your Koal Bot, this is to ensure you can recognize your application from the dashboard (if you create others). Now, we want you to press “Bot” on this side tab labeled “Settings”.
Once you have reached the bot page, you want to press the “Create A Bot” button as shown below, name it whatever you want, then press continue.
You are to scroll down and enable "Server Members Intent". This is critical to how our Bots can welcome users, etc. After you do that, you will need to copy the Bot's token by clicking "Copy" which is highlighted in the red box.
Firstly, you will need to log into our dashboard which is https://koal.us/dashboard. After you have logged in, you should see this:
If you do, brilliant! You will need to click “Bots Dashboard” and then click “Create. You should see three tiers: Silver, Gold, and Enterprise. Silver and Gold, you can create on the website. But for Enterprise, you must contact us via our Discord Server.
After you have selected what tier you would like, you should see something like this:
