Modmail bot

Modmail bot 3.2.2

No permission to download
What is Modmail?
Modmail is similar to Reddit's Modmail both in functionality and purpose. It serves as a shared inbox for server staff to communicate with their users in a seamless way.

This bot is free for everyone and always will be. If you like this project and would like to show your appreciation, you can support us on Patreon, cool benefits included!

How does it work?
When a member sends a direct message to the bot, Modmail will create a channel or "thread" within an isolated category. All further DM messages will automatically relay to that channel, for any available staff can respond within the channel.

All threads are logged and you can view previous threads through their corresponding log link. Here is an example.

Highly Customisable

Bot activity, prefix, category, log channel, etc.
Command permission system.
Interface elements (color, responses, reactions, etc).
Snippets and command aliases.
Minimum duration for accounts to be created before allowed to contact Modmail (account_age).
Minimum duration for members to be in the guild before allowed to contact Modmail (guild_age).
Advanced Logging Functionality:

When you close a thread, Modmail will generate a log link and post it to your log channel.
Native Discord dark-mode feel.
Markdown/formatting support.
Login via Discord to protect your logs (premium Patreon feature).
See past logs of a user with ?logs.
Searchable by text queries using ?logs search.
Robust implementation:

Schedule tasks in human time, e.g. ?close in 2 hours silently.
Editing and deleting messages are synced.
Support for the diverse range of message contents (multiple images, files).
Paginated commands interfaces via reactions.
This list is ever-growing thanks to active development and our exceptional contributors. See a full list of documented commands by using the ?help command.

Where can I find the Modmail bot invite link?

Unfortunately, due to how this bot functions, it cannot be invited. This is to ensure the individuality to your server and grant you full control over your bot and data. Nonetheless, you can easily obtain a free copy of Modmail for your server by following one of the methods listed below (roughly takes 15 minutes of your time)...

This bot can be hosted on Heroku.

Installation via Heroku is possible with your web browser alone. The installation guide (which includes a video tutorial!) will guide you through the entire installation process. If you run into any problems, join our Modmail Discord Server for help and support.

Local hosting of Modmail is also possible, first you will need Python 3.7.

Follow the installation guide and disregard deploying the Heroku bot application. If you run into any problems, join our Modmail Discord Server
