A Discord bot for task management!

A few days back, I created a Discord Bot solely for task management. A minimal bot with only what's required without any of those confusing functionalities. Just add, assign(if needed) and tick off.

How to use it in your server?

The bot is published on and you can find it at Just click on the invite button and follow the steps. Screenshot 2021-07-23 at 8.03.38 PM.png


Like most discord bots, the Task Manager bot has a prefix, t!.

Add a task

You can add a task by typing t!add <task>. You can also assign someone a task by mentioning them in the t!add command.


  1. t!add This is a new task
  2. t!add This is a new task @mentioned-user

List all tasks

You can list all of the remaining tasks by typing t!list

Tick off a task

You can tick off a task from the list by typing t!done <id of task>. The ID of the task is the number which appears at the end of a task during t!list. In the screenshot attached earlier, it is 65

Show all done tasks

You can list all the tasks done by typing t!done-list

Remove a task from done and put it back in to be done

You can put a task back in the todo list by typing t!undo <id of task>

Help command

Finally, there is also a help command which lists all the commands you can use which you can get by typing t!help

That's it. And that's mostly everything you need in a task manager.

Note that the tasks are server specific and you cannot manipulate tasks across servers


The code for the bot can be found at the following Github Repo. You're welcome to create any issues or contribute by creating a PR.
