How to Record a Microsoft Teams Meeting

Microsoft Office products can streamline everything you need to run a seamless virtual workspace. With Teams, you can record meetings, events, or presentations that will be automatically uploaded to OneDrive or SharePoint for easy sharing.

  • You must have one of the following licenses: Office 365 Enterprise E1, E3, E5, F3, A1, A3, A5, M365 Business, Business Premium, or Business Essentials.
  • The recording feature must be enabled by the IT Admin.
  • The meeting will be recorded according to any compliance policy even if that participant with that policy is from another organization.
  • Guests and attendees outside organization will only have access to recordings explicitly shared with them.

How to Start Recording

  1. Start or Join your meeting in Teams.
  2. From the toolbox, click the More Actions button with the three dots.

  1. Click Start Recording.

  1. Participants will receive the notification that the recording has begun.

How to Stop Recording:

  1. From the toolbox, again select More Actions and then click Stop Recording.

The recording does not stop if the person who started the meeting leaves the meeting. The recording automatically stops when all participants have left the meeting.

Accessing your Recording

The person who started the recording will receive an email when the recording is available. Accessing the recording as a meeting participant is dependent on the type of meeting hosted. If your meeting occurred as a channel meeting, you will find the recording in SharePoint. If your meeting was started from anywhere else, you will find the recording in OneDrive and in the meeting chat.

  • Recordings expire after a certain amount of time. Your admin can adjust the amount of time recordings are available for.
  • Recordings do not capture whiteboards, annotations, shared notes, or videos and animations in PowerPoint presentations.
  • Recordings will show no more than four attendees streams at a time.
