    πŸ‘‰ Some good alternatives to integrate your Discord server onto the event platform are as follow:

    ❗ Limitations

    This integration entails few limitations from widgetbot and Brella 
    1. For all your members to interact easily on your server through Brella, make sure to send them invitations from the Discord server separately and well in advance! It is an essential step to adhere to, as otherwise, your members won't interact with each other. 
    2. To interact through Discord server chat on Brella, users will need to log in with their Discord account. This limitation comes from the widgetbot.

      Login-Discord
    3. When adding the iframe link of Discord with widgetbot onto Brella, you will not be able to start a thread, tag a member's name (@member), or add reactions to the message. All these features are available only on the Discord itself.

    ⚑ Note: To run this integration successfully, follow all the steps listed above. Communicate appropriately to all your attendees about limitations so that you won't receive questions during the event.
