Whether you want to setup an hourly Discord reminder message to hit a certain channel on your server to remind you of something, or you want to setup custom messages to hit your Discord community around the clock, this post is for you.

In this post we are going to look at how you can setup any type of Discord message, whether that is a standard text message, or embed style message to hit any channel on your server every hour using our bot, dotNotify.

How To Schedule Hourly, Or Custom Hourly Discord Messages

Firstly, to be able to have message automatically send to your Discord server at specified times, you will need a bot to do the work for you.

In this post, we are of course going to show you how dotNotify, our bot, has been setup to make it easy to schedule messages and reminders across your Discord server.

Whether you are looking to notify yourself regularly about something, or want to setup a remimder message or announcement for your Discord community members, dotNotify is your perfect message managing companion.

If you do not already have the dotNotify bot setup on your server, you will want to go ahead and do that now.

You can install it here for free.

It is free to use for 1 reminder, however, hourly reminders are a premium feature. However, I would highly recommend testing our the bot to see if it has what you need before upgrading to unlock the hourly functionality that is covered in this post.

dotNotify is the most powerful reminder and message management bot and dashboard for Discord. It’s been created to make it super easy for you to schedule and manage your announcements and reminders in just a few clicks.

With the message creation and live preview functionality, which also includes an embed style Discord generator, it is highly recommend to check it out, try it and read more posts on our site which go into all of the different features.

Step 5:

To setup a standard hourly message, you just need to check the hourly option and set an end date (this would be the date the message stops sending). 

If you want to customise your hourly messages to send every “X” number of hours, select “Custom hourly” and you will have the choice of how often you want the message to sending in hours.
