Record a Meeting in MS Teams

Last updated on May 15, 2024

Recording your meetings in Teams can create a helpful resource for you and your students. Your students can refer back to a lecture when studying for a test, for instance, or an absent student can watch the recording of a class that they weren’t able to attend. Fortunately, recording a meeting in Teams is a simple process. Please inform everyone in the meeting that it will be recorded before you start recording. Also, ensure that you, the instructor, are starting and stopping the recordings. If a student starts the recording, it can cause issues regarding the location where the file will be saved.


Create a Recording

  1. Open Microsoft Teams on your computer.
  2. Start a Teams Meeting.
  3. Click on the 3-Dots Icon on the toolbar of the Meeting Window.
  4. Click Start recording in the drop-down menu that appears.
  5. Click on the 3-Dots menu again when you are ready to end the recording.
  6. Click on Stop recording in the drop-down menu.
  7. Click on Stop recording in the pop-up menu to confirm the recording should be stopped.
    • The Recording will now be saved. It will be saved to the Files section of the Team the meeting took place in, or to your personal files if the meeting didn’t take place in a Team.
