Recording in MS Teams

In Microsoft Teams, you can record your Teams meetings and group calls to capture audio, video, and screen sharing activity. Teams records your videos in the cloud and saves them to Microsoft Stream so you can share them securely across the College.

Below is a list of recording steps. You can scroll through the entire page or choose a specific topic from the following list:

Start recording

  1. Click the More options (more options icon) icon on the toolbar.
  2. Click Start recording.
    click start recording
    NOTE: If you started the recording, a notice will appear at the top of the meeting window to remind you to let everyone know that you are recording. If you are an attendee to the meeting, a notice will appear at the top of the meeting window to remind you to view the privacy policy. Please see Information Technology Policies for more information.

Default permissions for the recording

When you schedule a Teams meeting, everyone you invite to the meeting, regardless of their attendance, gets access to the meeting recording by default. You can invite attendees in the following ways:

  • From Outlook, you invite the required attendees.
  • From the Teams Calendar, you add the required attendees. (NOTE: You also can Add a Channel instead of adding attendees, and that invites everyone who is part of that channel’s parent team.)
NOTE: If you create a meeting link in LEARN and share it with potential attendees, only the users who actually attend the meeting will have access to the meeting recording.

Change permissions

IMPORTANT: When changing permissions, do NOT select the Allow everyone in your company to view this video check box. Selecting this option will share your video with all staff AND students. This means that you could unintentionally share confidential information that conflicts with the College’s G3 – FIPPA privacy policy. If someone discloses personal information to the people in the video recording, it does not imply consent to share that information with the College community.

To change the permissions so your entire team can view the video, click the More options (more options icon) icon, click Update video details, and then refer to the Share with a team and Share with specific people sections below.
