Using Circuit contact links

Last updated:
Circuit contact links provides a fast and easy way for people to get in touch with each other on Circuit.

You can add your Circuit contact links to your webpage or email signature to prompt other people reach you on Circuit:

  1. Add your Circuit username, usually your corporate email address, to the end of the url:

    <URL of the system where your Circuit domain is registered to>/#/email/

    Then add it to your webpage or email signature to prompt other people to have a 1-to-1 conversation with you on Circuit.

  2. Add your phone number to the end of:

    <URL of the system where your Circuit domain is registered to>/#/phone?number=

    Then add it to your webpage or email signature to prompt other people to reach you on phone using Circuit.

For example, if your domain is registered to https://eu.yourcircuit.com, your Circuit username is john.smith@example.com and your phone number is +49-89-636-48018, your Circuit contact links are as follows:

  • https://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/email/john.smith@example.com

  • https://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/phone?number=+498963648018

    or

    https://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/phone?number=00498963648018

Click a Circuit link like https://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/email/john.smith@example.com to open the Circuit web client directly to the 1-to-1 conversation with that person. If such a conversation does not exist, you can start it by clicking Start. Once the conversation is started, you can have calls with voice, video, and screen sharing and exchange instant messages with the contacted person.

Click a Circuit link like https://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/phone?number=00498963648018 to open the Circuit web client directly to the Phone calls conversation, where the input field is pre-filled with the person's phone number. Click Call to call the person.
Note:

This requires that a Circuit Telephony Connector is set up and enabled to allow you to make and receive phone calls through the Circuit application. If not, you see a message that You do not have access to the conversation or the conversation does not exist.

Note:

If circuit is used as the protocol identifier for the URL of the system where your Circuit domain is registered to, the Circuit phone link will look like: circuit://eu.yourcircuit.com/#/phone?number=00498963648018. Click this link to launch the Desktop App instead of the web client to place the phone call from.

If you do not have an account on that system (in our example, on https://eu.yourcircuit.com) you are asked to create one.
