How to schedule a Circuit conference from Google Calendar

Last updated:

You can schedule a Circuit conference from Google Calendar using the Circuit for Google Calendar Add-on.

  • Your Google Calendar and your Circuit email address must be the same.

  • The Circuit domain administrator has to enable the Google Calendar Add-on through the Manage applications > Apps tab before you can use it.

To schedule a Circuit conference:

  1. Open Google Calendar.
  2. Click the Create button or select your preferred time slot for the conference.
  3. Click More Options.
  4. Enter the necessary conference details, such as title, location, and guest list.
  5. From the Add conferencing drop-down list, select Circuit.

    When Circuit for Google Calendar Add-on is used for the first time, it will require you to log in.

    To login to Circuit:

    1. Beside Circuit, click Log in.

    2. Sign in to your Circuit account.
    3. Click Allow access to give permissions to the add-on to connect to your Circuit account.

    A new group Circuit conversation is created, and a Circuit conference is scheduled. The Circuit conference details are added to the event.

  6. Click Save.

An email invitation with the Circuit conference details is sent to guests of the Google Calendar event. Event guests who have a Circuit account are also added to the respective Circuit conversation.

Any change you make on the Google Calendar event thereafter, such as updating its title, date or time or adding new Circuit users to the event as guests, will be reflected in the Circuit conversation.
