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.
The option to allow only the meeting organizer to record a meeting is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:
Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
- Mute All
- Remove/Add Users
- Admit Users from Lobby
- Start/Stop Recording
For more info, please see the documentation below:

It would also be good if the organizer could have an option to disable the possibility to record or not per meeting setting, or have participants accept it to be recorded
this would be very useful
Use this tool for e-learning as professor, and on first course a student recorded the full course without advice (didn't see any notice). I'll not use it anymore until i can control this function.
This would be very useful

This will become increasingly important and should be tied with variables to Data Classification policies. With switches for public, private, confidential and highly confidential with the latter 2 being able to turn off recording by policy.
Needs only the organiser to record. Should at least be an option in the Meeting Options to have a switch to be: On, Off, or Organiser only.
Seriously.. need to have the option that only the meeting organizer can record.. otherwise, people in the meeting just start record by themselves which is so wrong...
Please really consider this.

We need this to stop our users recording meetings for their own use, as they won't ask attendees for consent prior to initiating the recording and if there is personal, or sensitive personal information being discussed, the sharing of the video (even with the limited audience) could be a data breach under DPA. Please allow a presenter to block non-presenters from initiating a recording.
I would like to have any option to avoid recording of video in meetings if you are the meeting organizer. For me it is equal, if the meeting organizer is the only one to start recording or if the meeting organizer can stop and delete recordings.
Would be great if this was a tenant level config option in addition to a meeting level setting controlled by host.
Agreed! Would like to prevent recording on sensitive or confidential corporate topics. We have ongoing issues with recordings being started and others being brought into the call by phone no knowing the call is being recorded. At a minimum, have the organizer approve or grant permission for recording at meeting setup.
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.
