Invites to StarLeaf
Managing StarLeaf advancedLast updated July 13, 2020
Invites allow StarLeaf users to invite guests to video call them by either installing StarLeaf on their mobile or desktop, or using their browser. In this way, a StarLeaf user can have a video call with anyone.
Invites are included in the StarLeaf service at no extra cost for StarLeaf users. StarLeaf does not limit users on the number of invitations.
To send an invite, a user simply chooses invite from the home screen of a StarLeaf endpoint or from the app. Alternatively, you can add a guest email address to the list of participants when creating a scheduled meeting.
If an invite is sent to a person who appears (by email address domain) to be associated with an organization, the admin will be notified by email. In this case, the person is added automatically to the organization. Note that this auto-adding feature can be disabled if required.
StarLeaf prompts invitees to download the StarLeaf app. If an invitee appears to be in an existing organization (because their email address matches a domain), that person will be prompted to download the app and will be added to the organization. If you send an invitation to someone and their email domain does not match an existing StarLeaf organization, a new StarLeaf organization account will be created and that user will become admin of that account.
A StarLeaf user can invite a guest from the app or from a StarLeaf endpoint. Select an option below to find out more.

The guest invite also provides a link to detailed instructions for how to dial the inviter from a third-party endpoint. This means that the guest has a choice: call from a browser, download StarLeaf app, or use existing video-conferencing equipment to call the inviter. The instructions cover a range of third-party manufacturers, for example, Cisco, Tandberg, Poly, Lifesize, Sony, Radvision, Avaya, Skype for Business.
