Steps to recording a meeting that you are attending to on Microsoft Teams
If you are attending a meeting on your desktop:
- To be able to record a meeting, you first must be attending one meeting. There is no way to set up an option to start recording the meeting as soon as you enter, you have to do it manually when you are in the actual meeting.
- When you are in the meeting, move your cursor to the meeting window so that you expand some more options.
- Find the three-dotted button in the bottom toolbar of your screen and click on it in order to expand even more options.
- A new drop-down menu should show up on your screen. You will need to find the Start recording button in that menu and click on it. By clicking on it, the recording process is going to start immediately. And everyone that is attending that meeting is going to get a notification that you are recording it. Also, people will get a notification in the chat saying that the meeting is being recorded. Also, have in mind, that if one person starts to record a meeting after they stop, everyone who has participated in it is going to get a copy of that recording saved to their Cloud storage.
- If you want to stop your meeting, simply move your cursor to the meeting window to expand those options again.
- Click on that three-dotted button and wait until the drop-down menu shows up.
- When it does show up, find the Stop recording option and click on it. The recording is going to be saved to everyone’s cloud storage right after the recording has been stopped.
