You can only do it one after the other.

We believe Discord developers made it so to avoid spam and verifying the wrong users.


The ‘Verify Member’ button is used to fully verify a member to allow them to gain access to all the features of a Discord server.

This process is different from the email address, phone number, or hCaptcha verifications on Discord.

Without Discord server Mods clicking on the button, unverified members in that server may not be able to fully access the server; it is quite important.
