Share a Website on the Go

The best way to share media, like a website, with your peers is to prepare a button in the agenda ahead of time. However, sharing it immediately in the CircleSpace™️ is very easy, too. All you need is the link:

  1. Copy the URL of the website you want to share. (You can do this by just clicking on the address line in your browser and then right-clicking and selecting ‘Copy’. You can also copy with your keyboard by simultaneously pressing the ‘CTRL‘ and ‘C‘ keys, or ‘Command‘ and ‘C‘ on Mac. )
  1. Open the Tools menu in the CircleSpace™️ and choose the ‘Share document‘ option. Then, right click and select ‘paste’, or press the ‘CTRL‘ and ‘V‘ keys in the space provided.
  1. Pressing Start Sharing will open the website within the CircleSpace™️ for all participants to see.

NOTE: Each participant can independently change the layout between Portrait or Landscape mode by clicking on the three dots under the agenda. 

4. To close the website for all participants, click the “X” on the tray below the agenda.

Share a Google Document, Sheet, or Slide on the Go

In the CircleSpace™️, you can easily display Google documents that you can collaborate in with your peers. Prepare a button in your agenda so you don’t have to worry about it during your session. Or follow the steps below to share your document immediately.

Add a Collaborative Document to Your Agenda

In the CircleSpace™️, you can do things together. When you work together, you collaborate, you share deeply. In this article, you’ll learn how to add a button to your agenda that opens a collaborative Google document – one of the many types of documents that can be shared in the CircleSpace™️.

As long as you have the option to share your documents with anyone (including those that don’t already have an account with the same platform you are using), you can share it in the CircleSpace™️, using the sharing link or an embed code. A couple of examples include Dropbox, Onedrive and Zoho.
