Microsoft Teams, along with Zoom and Google Meet, is one of the most popular clients used to hold online meetings in workspaces. Microsoft Teams comes with its own unique features, like creating different chat channels for different groups in a work setting. Microsoft Teams also allows its users to record video meetings. However, only the meeting organiser or people from the same organisation can record the meeting. If you’re a meeting guest, you will need permission from the IT team to record a meeting.

Once the recording starts, all participants will get a notification that the recording and transcription have started. No more than one participant can record the meeting at one time. Once the recording is over, the video file will be uploaded on One Drive or SharePoint (if it was a channel meeting) for all participants to see. To find the recording, simply login to One Drive or SharePoint and access the Teams recording folder. You will also be able to see the recording in the meeting or channel chat. Guest attendees can only view the recording when an external link to the file is shared with them. Meeting participants can view the live transcription during the meeting. If you do not want to record the transcription, follow these steps.

Step 3: To stop recording the transcription, simply click on the ellipses from the meeting controls and select ‘Stop transcription’.

Step 4: To stop recording the meeting altogether, click on the ellipses and then select ‘Stop recording’.

To delete a recording, simply access the file on One Drive, select it and hit delete on the top toolbar. Typically, meetings recorded on Microsoft Teams come with an expiration date. The recorded file gets auto-deleted upon expiry. If you have admin privileges you can manage the expiration date of any recording. Follow these steps to change the date of expiration of the meeting recording.

Step 1: Access the My Files folder on One Drive and view it as a list. 

Step 2: Click on the ellipses (three dots) on the recording file.

Step 3: Select ‘Show actions’ and then click on ‘Details’.

Step 4: Click on the drop-down menu for Expiration Date and select a time period. If you want to store the recording permanently, choose ‘No expiration’.
