Introduction

If you use Microsoft Teams for your virtual meetings, you may want to know how to record those meetings. This can be useful for a variety of reasons, such as creating a reference for later or sharing the meeting with someone who was unable to attend. In this blog post, we'll walk you through the steps for recording a meeting on Microsoft Teams.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, make sure you have the following:

  • A Microsoft Teams account

  • The Microsoft Teams app installed on your computer or device

Step 1: Schedule a Meeting

The first step in recording a meeting on Microsoft Teams is to schedule the meeting. You can do this by clicking the "Meetings" button in the left-hand navigation menu and then selecting "Schedule a Meeting."

Step 2: Set Up the Meeting

Next, you'll need to set up the meeting by entering the necessary details, such as the meeting title, date and time, and attendees. You can also customize the meeting by adding a description or setting up a recurring meeting.

Step 3: Start the Meeting

When it's time for the meeting to start, click the "Join" button in the invitation to join the meeting. If you're the meeting organizer, you can also start the meeting by clicking the "Start" button in the meetings list.

Step 4: Record the Meeting

Once the meeting has started, you can record it by clicking the "More options" button (represented by three dots) in the meeting window and selecting "Start recording."

Step 5: Stop the Recording

To stop the recording, click the "More options" button again and select "Stop recording."

Step 6: View the Recording

After the recording has stopped, it will be automatically saved to the "Meetings" tab in your Microsoft Teams account. You can view the recording by clicking on it in the list of meetings.

Step 7: Share the Recording

If you want to share the recording with someone who was not able to attend the meeting, you can do so by clicking the "Share" button in the top right-hand corner of the recording window. From there, you can choose to send the recording via email or share a link to the recording.

Step 8: Edit the Recording

If you want to edit the recording, you can do so by clicking the "Edit" button in the top right-hand corner of the recording window. This will open the recording in the Microsoft Stream video editor, where you can trim the video, add captions, or make other edits.

Step 9: Download the Recording

If you want to download the recording to your computer, you can do so by clicking the "Download" button in the top right-hand corner of the recording window. This will download the recording as an MP4 file, which you can then play on your computer or device.

Tips for Recording Meetings

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when recording meetings on Microsoft Teams:

  • Make sure that all participants are aware that the meeting is being recorded. It's good practice to inform them at the beginning of the meeting and to remind them periodically throughout.

  • Be mindful of the sensitivity of the information being discussed during the meeting. If the meeting involves confidential or sensitive information, it's important to have explicit consent from all participants before recording.

  • Use the mute and video off features to reduce background noise and distractions. This will help to make the recording more clear and focused.

  • If you're planning to share the recording with others, consider editing out any personal or identifying information that might be included.

  • Remember to stop the recording when the meeting is over. This will prevent any post-meeting discussions or idle chit-chat from being recorded.

Whether you need to create a reference for later or share the meeting with someone who was unable to attend, this feature can be very useful.
