Recording in Microsoft Teams

How to Record in Microsoft Teams?

Start Recording a Meeting

This post explains how to use Microsoft Teams to record meetings and how to adjust the privacy settings for the video recordings. All recordings done in Microsoft Teams are uploaded to the Microsoft Stream service to be shared and viewed.

1. In Teams, join any video or audio meeting. You can find instructions on how to set up and join meetings here.

2. Once you’re in a Teams Meeting, click the… symbol in the options bar in the middle of the screen to reveal the menu above. Start recording by pressing the record button.

3. The meeting is presently being recorded, as indicated by the timer on the left of the choices bar. You can go back to the… menu and select Stop Recording to end the recording early, or simply exit the meeting to do so.

4. Once the recording is complete, a link to the recording’s Stream upload will appear in the meeting text chat. Members of the meeting or anyone with whom the video is shared should be allowed to see the recording by default.

Troubleshoot recordings

If you’re having trouble recording a meeting, you’ll almost certainly require the assistance of an IT administrator. Keep the following points in mind as you proceed: 

The meeting organizer and the recorder must both have Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3, or E5 licenses.

Both the meeting organizer and the recorder require recording permission, which must be provided by an IT administrator.

Meetings cannot be recorded by guests or federated users.

Share a link to a meeting recording with others

If you taped or organized the meeting, you can share the recording with individuals who weren’t invited by simply sharing it like you would any other file.

Simply locate the file in OneDrive or SharePoint and share it directly with others, or copy the URL and share it as desired.
