Configuring The Basics

Use the !config command to open the configuration menu

event_log: The channel where the bot will send its audit log messages. Very important to set up.\

🆕 alert_channel: If someone closes their DMs, but they should receive an important notification (such as a camera-only room warning) the bot will send it to this channel instead.

To use, create a room and copy its ID (to check IDs you need to activate developer mode in Discord) using the following command:

!config event_log {ID here}

For example:

Getting the ID of the channel you want to configure
How the command should look like when setting an alert of log channels

Set an Admin and a Moderator role, to allow your staff to access the configuration as well, for example:

Don’t forget to join the main server, in the near future, the owner, admins, and moderators of servers who use the bot will automatically get access to the important channels on our main server, so you will stay updated all the time!

The rest are as easy as the first one:

unranked_roles: Roles you wish to exclude from the leaderboard. Useful in cases of cheating or when you use music bots that are in the study rooms 24/7.

donator_roles: If you have donors in your server, you can configure their roles using this feature, it will allow you to unlock features only for your donors if you want in the future.

untracked_channels: Voice channels that you don’t want the bot to consider as study channels, therefore their study time in !stats won’t increase when they use these Voice channels.

hourly_reward: Reward given when studying for 1 hour in a study room

hourly_live_bonus: Bonus reward for sharing the screen or turning on the webcam in the study rooms


min_workout_length: The minimal time a user must stay in a workout voice channel in order to get a workout bonus

workout_reward: The reward a user gets for completing a workout

workout_channels: Set voice channels to be considered as workout channels


task_limit: How many tasks can one have at the same time?

task_reward: The reward a user gets for each completion of a task

task_reward_limit: How many times per 24 hours can a user get the reward bonus

Private Study Rooms

rent_category: sets the category where the private study rooms will be created under.

rent_member_limit: How many users are allowed to join a private study room

rent_price: The price you have to pay if you want to rent a study room for 24 hours

🆕 Moderation

🆕 mod_log: The channel where the bot logs tickets, warning and more. This channel should only be visible to the Admins and moderators.

🆕 studyban_role: This role to someone by the bot when they aren’t following the server’s rules or joining camera-only rooms multiple time without turning on their webcam.

🆕 studyban_durations: The duration of the bans (the amount of time the user will get the “mute” role) after joining the camera-only rooms without opening their camera.

🆕 Video Channels (Camera-only channels)

🆕 video_channels: The voice channels you want to set as camera-only (When creating them, make sure to add the “mute” role in the permissions, so the users won’t be able to connect to these VCs if they are study-banned)

🆕 video_studyban: Enables/disables this feature.

🆕 video_grace_period: How long a user will have to open their webcam after joining a camera-only study room

Accountability rooms

accountability_category: The category that the scheduled accountability study rooms will appear under

accountability_lobby: The channel where you want to bot to send the accountability room notification to

accountability_price: How much does it cost to schedule a session?

accountability_bonus: The bonus all users will get if everyone attended the accountability session.

accountability_reward: The reward a user will get for attending.

Setting Up Study Ranks / Badges

This feature allows you to create and manage the roles your users will get for studying X hours in your study rooms. You can fully configure when and what role they will get.

Here is an example of the roles hierarchy on my server

If you run the command !help [command], you can learn more about a specific command, in our example, I used !help studybadges:

In order to create a role, I need to use !studybadge -add [name of the role], [time]. You can even add multiple roles and just separate them into different lines, like so:

This command will create a set of roles that is similar to mine. You can change the names and the time, but the concept is the same for the creating of the roles. Don’t forget to change the colors, sequence, and display the role in your member list. 

The next thing would be to set up your !shop. The shop allows you to set up colored roles the users can buy using their coins. (You will have to change the color in the Role’s page, but use the command to set everything up)

You can do it quite easily using a similar command to what we already did for the study badges:

If you have roles with very similar names, the bot won’t create new roles but will use the correct roles with the similar names, this will allow servers with existing colored roles to configure the bot.

This is pretty much it for the configuration, we will create a guide on how to use the bot as a user in the next few days.

Setting Up Camera-Only Channel

First of all, we need to make sure we set the “mute” role in the correct way, if you want to block study-banned users from joining all VCs, follow the following steps:

Step 1: Create a new role
Step 2: Name the role
Step 3: Click on the ‘permissions’ tab
Scroll down, and revoke the user’s ability to connect to voice channels, by turning off the “connect” toggle.
The ‘Connect’ should be off.
Last step: Drag the “Mute” role all the way to the top of the list, but under the ‘Studylion bot’ role

If you do want the study-banned users to be able to join other voice channels, but not the camera only channel, create a mute role in the same way but don’t disable the “connect” from the general permissions settings, do this instead:

After creating the mute role (this time, you kept the “connect” toggle on and dragged the role all the way to the top), edit the settings of the camera-only channel you want to block study-banned users from joining to.
Click on the channel’s permission tab
Click the “+” sign and add the mute role to the list
Scroll all the way down and make sure to set the ‘connect’ permission to X.

And that’s it! This is how you set the mute role. Make sure to configure it by using !config studyban_role [Mute role ID], and set the ban durations as well, by using !config studyban_duration [time here]


This command describes how long a member will be automatically study-banned for after committing a study-related offense (such as not enabling their video in video-only channels). If the sequence is 1d, 7d, 30d, for example, the member will be study-banned for 1d on their first offense, 7d on their second offense, and 30d on their third. On their fourth offense, they will not be unbanned. This does not count pardoned offenses.

Accepted input: Comma-separated list of durations in days/hours/minutes/seconds, for example 12h, 1d, 7d, 30d.

In our case, the user will be muted for 5 minutes on their first offense, but 30d on their 6th, and forever on their 7th
