Direct Message a User

When triggered, the Direct Message a User action responds with a DM to a user of your choosing. This message can either be sent to the user who triggered the block, a user option, or a user ID. All variables and options can be used in the content of the reply.

User to DM

To receive a direct message, the user must have Direct Messages enabled.

The Direct Message a User action has three options that change to whom the message of the action is sent. Below you can find detailed information about each option and how it can be used.

By selecting this option your Direct Message will be sent to the user who used the most recent interaction; for example, the most recent button press, select menu choice, command run or the user who triggered the custom event.


In the Direct Message a User action, you have the choice for each message to be plain text, or an embed.


The content of the action is the actual message that the bot should reply with when the action is triggered. You can use any variable or option in the content of this reply. These can be easily added through the variable selector by clicking the Clipboard button.


Reactions can also be added to the reply. These can be added by clicking the reactions dropdown and selecting emojis.

These reactions will be automatically added to the reply.

Optional Variable

You can also create your own variable that can be used anywhere in the command to get the ID of the message sent by the action. This is useful when using Send an API Request in your command / event and you need the ID of the message. Make sure that the name of the variable does not correspond to the name of a default variable or of an another action.

You can copy the variable by clicking the clipboard icon in the section right below the optional variable field.
