How to Record a Meeting in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a popular collaboration and communication platform that allows teams to meet, chat, and share files and resources. One of the key features of Microsoft Teams is the ability to record meetings, which can be useful for capturing discussions, presentations, and decisions for later review or reference. In this blog post, we will go over how to record a meeting in Microsoft Teams.

Step 1: Start the meeting

The first step in recording a meeting in Microsoft Teams is to start the meeting. This can be done by either scheduling the meeting in advance or by starting an ad hoc meeting on the spot. To schedule a meeting in advance, go to the "Meetings" tab in Microsoft Teams and click on "Schedule a Meeting." This will open a window where you can enter the meeting details, such as the date, time, and participants. Once you have entered the details, click on "Schedule" to create the meeting.

To start an ad hoc meeting, go to the "Meetings" tab in Microsoft Teams and click on "New Meeting." This will open a window where you can invite participants to the meeting. Once you have invited the participants, click on "Start" to start the meeting.

Step 2: Record the meeting

Once the meeting has started, the next step is to record the meeting. To do this, go to the "Meeting controls" at the bottom of the screen and click on the "More options" (...) button. This will open a menu where you can select "Start recording."

When you start recording, a notification will appear at the top of the screen to let the participants know that the meeting is being recorded. The recording will capture the audio, video, and screen-sharing of the meeting, and it will be saved to the "Cloud recordings" folder in the "Files" tab of Microsoft Teams.

Step 3: Stop the recording

To stop the recording, go to the "Meeting controls" at the bottom of the screen and click on the "More options" (...) button. This will open a menu where you can select "Stop recording."

When you stop the recording, a notification will appear at the top of the screen to let the participants know that the recording has stopped. The recording will be saved to the "Cloud recordings" folder in the "Files" tab of Microsoft Teams.

Step 4: Review and share the recording

Once the recording has stopped, you can review and share the recording. To review the recording, go to the "Files" tab in Microsoft Teams and navigate to the "Cloud recordings" folder. This folder will contain the recording of the meeting, which you can click on to open and review.

To share the recording, go to the "Files" tab in Microsoft Teams and navigate to the "Cloud recordings" folder. Then, click on the recording that you want to share and select "Share." This will open a window where you can enter the email addresses of the people you want to share the recording with. Once you have entered the email addresses, click on "Send" to share the recording.

Tips for recording meetings in Microsoft Teams

To get the most out of recording meetings in Microsoft Teams, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Notify the participants. It is important to notify the participants that the meeting is being recorded, so that they are aware and can give their consent. This can be done by announcing it at the beginning of the meeting and by displaying a notification on the screen when the recording starts.

Test the recording before the meeting. Before starting the recording, it is a good idea to test the recording to ensure that it is working properly and that the audio and video are of good quality. This can be done by starting a test recording and reviewing it before the meeting starts.

Keep the recording private. By default, the recording of the meeting will be saved to the "Cloud recordings" folder in the "Files" tab of Microsoft Teams. This folder is private, so only the people who were invited to the meeting will be able to access the recording. It is important to keep the recording private, to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of the participants.
