This Microsoft Teams release will allow meetings to start recording automatically when they are set to auto-record in meeting options. This will benefit users who forget to hit the record button for crucial meetings. This is rolling out on desktop, mobile and web. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 83054.
This feature allows users to auto record meetings by choosing auto record option in meetings options.
This feature will be available in meetings if:
- Meeting organizer has AllowCloudRecording enabled.
- Users have RecordingStorageMode set to “OneDriveForBusiness” as well as “Stream”.
- Meeting organizer is not an A1 user
When this will happen
Production and GCC: will begin rolling this out in late June and expect to complete rollout mid-July.
DoD and GCC-High: will begin rolling this out in late July and expect to complete rollout mid-August.
How this will affect your organization
Meeting organizers will be able to set a meeting to auto-record by checking the “Record automatically” setting from their Meeting Options page. This option can be enabled for a single meeting occurrence or for a series. The meeting will automatically start recording after the first participant joins the meeting. The recording is saved to the initiator’s OneDrive (if the meeting was a privately scheduled meeting) or to SharePoint (if the meeting was a channel meeting) or Stream for customers who are still on the Stream Platform. The meeting initiator and meeting organizer will both have owner rights to the recording.
What you need to do to prepare
Tenant admins will not have to do any additional policy set up. This feature will be available in meeting options if organizer has AllowCloudRecording enabled.
You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
