What is a Main Circle? 

In a Main Circle, most of your team members have the same company email domain eg.


Note: only one Main Circles can exist per unique email domain.

If you encounter an error when selecting a Main Circle, there may already be one existing for your company. Please reach out to your Admin to invite you to the existing Circle in this case. 

Due to having a shared company email domain, if you have a Main Circle, your Admin & Billing Moderator will be able to:

-Require team members to sign in with a verified Google account, find out how to set this up here

-Auto-approve new members with the same email domain as your Circle, find out how to set this up here


What is a Custom Circle? 

In a Custom Circle, your team members have different email domains ie. you are probably not a large company with a claimed domain, or you may be using the Circle feature for non-business purposes. eg


Note: a Custom Circle won't have;

Verified Google account sign-in option, or, auto-approval of new members due to differing email domains within your team.
