Teams Meeting Recordings

How do recordings work in Microsoft Teams?

Teams meeting recordings will now be stored in OneDrive or SharePoint, and will continue to be accessible through Teams. How they are stored and accessed varies slightly based on what type of meeting it is.

  • Standard Meetings - created from the Calendar app in Teams  
  • Channel Meetings - created in the Teams app within a specific channel
     

Standard Meeting

Standard meetings are those created by going to the Calendar app on the left, then clicking Meet now or New meeting. Recordings from these meetings will save to the OneDrive of the person who recorded the meeting, and be automatically shared with the other meeting invitees who are a part of your organization. 

When the recording is ready, it will be available in the Chat feed for the meeting.  

To view the recording:
  • Go to the Chat app on the left, then select the meeting.
  • Click on the preview in the chat stream .

  • The video will open in your default brower.
     
  • You can watch it in the brower, or download it by clicking the Download button at the top.
    Note: if you don't see the download button, check with the meeting organizer.

Who can download the recording?  At this time, anyone who can view a meeting recording in OneDrive or SharePoint can also download a copy. Later in Q1 of 2021, Microsoft will be making a change to this setting. At that time, only the meeting recorder and organizer will able to download the meeting by default; all others will be initially given view-only access.

Permissions: By default, anyone at Columbus State with the link will be able to view the recording. If there were external participants in the meeting, a link to the recording must be manually shared with them.To learn how to stop or change sharing, see Microsoft's support page: Stop sharing in OneDrive or change permissions

Location

The recording will be saved to the OneDrive of the person who created the meeting, in a folder called Recordings. All files related to the meeting, including the recording, can also be found in the Files tab of the meeting.


Sharing:

Click on the ellipsis next to the recording preview to view the menu.

Click Get link to be able to copy the link and send it to others or click Open in OneDrive to find the file and share it directly with specific people.

 


Channel Meeting

The second type of meeting is held within a channel in one of your teams. These meetings are created by going to the Teams app, choosing a channel, and selecting Meet now or Schedule a meeting. Recordings from these meetings will save to the team's Sharepoint site and be accessible to all members of the channel.

When the recording is ready, it will show in the Posts tab of the channel and be accessible to all channel members.

To view the recording:
  • Go to the Teams app on the left, then select the channel.
  • Click on the Posts tab at the top.
  • Click on the preview.

  • The video will open in your default brower.
     
  • You can watch it in the brower, or download it by clicking the Download button at the top.
    Note: if you don't see the download button, check with the meeting organizer.
