Nov 26, 2021• Proven solutions

If you are hosting a Microsoft Teams meeting or are an important attendee, you may want to record the entire video session for official records. Therefore, the following sections explain how to record Teams meeting on a desktop/laptop computer and a mobile device with ease. In addition, here you will also get to know how to record a Teams meeting automatically, locate the recorded files, and share them conveniently.

Now, because Microsoft Teams notifies all the attendees when you start recording a meeting, one of the sections will also teach how to record Teams meeting secretly, i.e., without letting anyone know that you’re capturing the footage behind the scenes, just in case you want so.


Part 1: How to Record Microsoft Teams Meetings on Desktop and Mobile?

The methods that are given below explain how to record Teams meeting on a PC, an iOS device (typically an iPhone), and Android.

Prerequisites to Record Teams Video Meeting

In order to record a Teams meeting, you:

  • Must have the recording feature turned on by the IT administrator of the organization
  • Must not be a guest or attendee from another organization

Once you are sure that all the prerequisites that are listed above are met, you can go through the following instructions to learn how to record a Teams meeting on a computer:

Step 1: Start a Teams Video Call

Step 2: Start the Recording

During the meeting session, tap More actions from the bottom, and tap Start recording to start the recording.

Part 2: How to Automatically Record Microsoft Teams Meetings?

Quite recently, Microsoft integrated a new feature to the Teams app that allows the organizers to automatically record all the meeting sessions that take place. The recording starts automatically as soon as the first participant joins a meeting. This automatic recording function can be easily turned off if the organizer wants to.

You can learn how to record a Teams meeting automatically by following the instructions that are given below:

Step 1: Get to the Meeting with Box

Launch Microsoft Teams on your computer, and use the method explained earlier to get to the Meeting with box by initiating a new meeting.

Step 2: Get to the Meeting options Page

When on the Meeting with box, click Join now to start a new meeting, click the Show participants icon from the upper-right area, and when the Participants box comes up, click Manage permissions.

Step 3: Enable Automatic Recording

On the Meeting options page, turn on the Record automatically switch. Once this is done, you can safely share the invitation link with the people you want to attend the meeting, and Teams will start the recording as soon as the first participant joins in.

Part 3: How to Find Recorded Meetings in Teams?

The recorded files of the Teams meetings are saved to SharePoint in case of a channel meeting, or to the ‘Recordings’ folder on OneDrive if it was any other type of meeting. The processes of locating the Teams meeting files are given below:

For Channel Meetings

  • Launch Microsoft Teams
  • Click to select the Files option from the left pane
  • Click to select Microsoft Teams from the Files pane
  • Locate the recorded meeting from the window on the right

For Other Meeting Types

  • Get to the Files pane using the method explained in the previous section
  • Click to select OneDrive from the Cloud storage section
  • Locate the recorded meeting file from the right window

Part 4: How to Share Recorded Teams Meetings?

Sharing the recorded meetings is as easy as sharing any other file. The process to share the recording of a meeting file saved on OneDrive is given below:

  • Click to select OneDrive from the Cloud storage section of the Files pane as explained earlier
  • Locate and right-click the meeting file that you want to share
  • Click Share from the context menu
  • Use the Share box that opens next to add the participants you want to access the recorded file
  • Click Send to start sharing

Part 5: How to Record Teams Meeting Secretly?

Although Microsoft made Teams quite transparent by sending notifications to all the attendees as soon as you start recording a meeting, sometimes you may not want this to happen. In such a case, you must rely on a third-party app that can record your computer screen behind the scenes.

One such program is Filmora video editor by Wondershare. Although Wondershare Filmora is primarily used for industry-standard post-product tasks such as video editing, apply effects and filters to the motion clips, etc., it offers the screen, webcam, and audio recording options as additional features so you don’t have to depend on any other software for screencasting.
