Teams provides the ability to record your online meetings. This can be particularly useful for sharing meeting recordings with those unable to attend live, to archive teaching content for future use, or to allow participants to review previous meeting discussions. Recordings are automatically uploaded to your QMUL OneDrive account, where they can be managed and shared. You can also download Teams recordings and upload the files into QMplus Media, allowing you to add a meeting recording to a QMplus area for students.

Recording a meeting

To start recording during a meeting, click the ‘…’ More actions button at the top of the meeting window and select Start recording.

At the top of the meeting window, a notification will appear confirming that the recording has started, which notifies participants that their interactions in the meeting may be captured by the recording. You will also see a recording symbol and the length of the recording at the top-left corner of the meeting window.

When you are ready to end the recording, click the ‘…’ More actions button at the top of the meeting window and select Stop recording.

A confirmation pop-up will appear asking you to confirm whether you would like the recording to end. Click Stop recording to confirm.
