Option to only allow meeting organizer to record video meeting
Have an option (like BlueJeans) to only allow the meeting organizer or moderators to record the meeting, since right now anyone in the organization can record the meeting.
This is a privacy and resource issue. I think by default only host or alternative host (if that feature gets added) should be allowed to start recording.

Agreed, would be a nice feature. Seems like a good thing for privacy concerns as well.
Asking every participant for consent would be the better option.
All agree - recording starts
One revokes / disagrees - no recording possible

We've also run into this issue. We want the ability for meeting organizers to decide if a meeting is recorded or not and prevent others from recording it. There is a policy that would block all meetings by an organizer from being recorded, but that doesn't work if the organizer wants to record some meetings but not others. We're going to have to License a separate user to be used for confidential corporate meetings. That seems like a waste of a license when a per meeting option would suffice.
I can't believe this idea only has 9 votes. I wonder if it is because people aren't allowing recording at all? Recording is such a great option - but the organizer of the meeting should be able to specify who can initiate the recording. As we found today - if the organizer is actively presenting and not in the Teams window - they don't see the notice pop up that someone started the recording. Yes there is a note in the conversation area saying who started the recording and that the recording is there - but that is like closing the barn door after the horse already got out.

The meeting organizer/channel admin should have control over what permissions are granted to users.
