Temporarily grant yourself elevated permissions and view the permissions and commands you have access to
The Permissions Wizard is a key Good Knight feature that allows security along with flexibility. As a moderator, it gives you password protected access to use dangerous discord permissions while minimizing the risk.

For example, a mod has the
Create Announcementpermission. They now have access to the
/postcommand which can be used to have Good Knight send a secure message in any channel. Even channels that the user cannot send messages in (this is great for protecting announcement channels). In addition, if the Permissions Wizard is active they can select it from the drop-down menu to be temporarily given this permission. With the
Create Announcementpermission, they are now given the ability to send a message in any channel that they can view and mention users with @everyone, @here, or @<roles>. Once the temporary permission expires, their permissions return to normal.

Revoke Permissionsbutton in the Good Knight logs channel.
