In this article, we want to show you how to get started with Circles right away. Watch the video or read the text on how to organize your Circles sessions in 4 easy steps:

STEP 1: Create your account

STEP 2: Add members to your first circle

STEP 3: Schedule your first Circles session

STEP 4: Enter your Circles meeting space

STEP 1: Create your account

  1. Go to my.circl.es/signup to create your account. Fill in your details, agree to terms of service and click “Continue to confirm email.”
  1. Confirm your address by clicking on the link in the email. If you didn’t receive an email, be sure to check your spam folder!
  1. Create a password and click “Finish.”
  1. Upon confirmation, you have the option to watch a short video, log into your My.Circles dashboard or schedule a live demo.

STEP 2: Add members to your first circle

A circle is a group of people that has its own Circles space. Each of the members has a personal join link that works like a password into the interactive video space. Your members do not need anything besides their personal links to participate. Here is how you add members to your circle:

  1. Go to your My.Circles dashboard by clicking “Log into your Circles dashboard” or by logging in at my.circl.es.

NOTE: Please use Chrome or Firefox as your browser.

  1. Upon your first login, you will automatically see your very first circle:
  1. Select “Add members.”
  1. Add the first name, last name and email address of the person you want to add.
  1. Click “Add another person” to add multiple people at the same time. When done, click “Next” and then “Finish” on the following page.
  1. The new members now show up on your Circle overview.

STEP 3: Schedule your first Circles session

Only persons that you invited into your circle can come into your Circles space. Using their personal join link, they can come into the Circles space at any time, for example to quickly check in with each other between official sessions. The easiest way to let your members know about a session and their personal join link is to schedule your session straight from your My.Circles dashboard:

  1. Go to your My.Circles dashboard, by logging in at my.circl.es and navigate to your circle: Select Circles in the top menu and click on the circle for which you want to schedule a session.

NOTE: Please use Chrome or Firefox as your browser.

  1. Select “Schedule meeting” on top of your circle’s overview.
  1. In the window that opens, select the date, time and duration of your session. Then, add a message about its purpose.
  2. Select which of your members you want to invite by ticking or unticking the box next to their name.
  1. Click “Submit” to send members a calendar invite with your message and automatic instructions to access the Circles space.

NOTE: Circles spaces must be accessed from a Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop – no mobile phones.

STEP 4: Enter your Circles meeting space

  1. Head to your My.Circles dashboard by clicking the “Go to your dashboard” button or by logging in at my.circl.es.
  2. Select “Enter meeting space” or open your personal join link.
  1. Before your first Circles session, learn more about the features of the Circles space and check out our quickstart guide for facilitators.

In a world of physical distance, circles facilitate authentic human connection.

In a circle, 3-12 participants contribute equally, share openly, and push each other to act.

We spent years with academics and practitioners, honing best practices and building a technology platform. Our circles have helped scale peer learning, sustain manager and leadership development, move live training online, onboard new employees, support career development, teach collaboration, and build community.

We’ve been grateful for the support and the referrals from our large corporate partners, schools, and communities who have been hiring us to help design, facilitate and manage Circles programs.

In order to keep up with the interest in our system and technology, please help us understand your needs by answering a few questions.
