delete recorded meeting
There is no way to delete a meeting that has been recorded in a channel. There have been a couple of times that I have started and ended one realizing I was in the wrong channel or that I didn't give it a title or topic name.
Thank you for your feedback! For information on deleting channel and private meeting recordings, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/delete-a-meeting-recording-in-teams-b1ff8102-72da-4a6c-9979-d03a55d9b65d.

stephen smith - please note that you can change the default Presenter to only the organizer (or person who starts a meeting) using PowerShell (Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy).

There are lots of data protection/privacy issues around meeting recordings. A major one is that the default allows an audience member to start/stop recordings in Teams meetings (this shows as the meeting host who started the recording and no way to see who actually did it). To get around this - the meeting organiser has to know that they have to designate presenters when setting up their meeting. We cover this in guidance but that relies on the user knowing they have to look in the first place. More often, meeting organisers will just schedule the meeting with the default options - they wouldn't expect attendees to automatically have permission to record their meeting. If recordings are also uploaded to Stream - there is no retention policy controls within Stream. Also, Microsoft announced that they'd stop auto-uploading recordings from Teams to Stream for A1 plans. This makes it more urgent then to allow the actual host of the meeting to delete the recording wherever it happens to appear. The way this is right now is the entire opposite of what should be in place. Allowing anyone to create and store a record without any viable means of control for the person who is the responsible data controller is just not acceptable. Our schools are seriously seeking alternatives now just because of this issue alone.
I can delete recorded meetings from Stream however the thumbnail of the recording remains in Teams. There is no way to delete this thumbnail from Teams.
Hello, the inability to delete recordings is also not GDPR 2018 (UK) compliant, if one of the attendees revokes their consent for the recording.
Here's how to delete a video from Teams when you don't have Stream enabled:
1. Log into Teams for the web (https://teams.microsoft.com) in Chrome, as the user
2. Go to the Chat section and download the file
3. In your browser, navigate to the downloads list using the three dots at the top right
4. Here, you'll see the url of the video in Microsoft blob storage
5. Open a ticket with M365 support and supply the organizer's name, date/time of the recording and the URL.
Amen, I'm really thrilled that all 300 of my co-workers can now watch me as I experiment with the Team app for the first time. At least they'll all get a good laugh !
Why is it that all recordings are automatically posted to the channel ? Is there a way to block the posting of the recording's link from the channel ?
I am on board with this - very frustrating!
This is essential functionality, we work in a school and may have times when it is not appropriate for meetings to be posted to Team threads. As recordings.
If I delete it on Stream, I would like to have the link deleted from Teams. It's a feature that one would think should be basic.
Yes it clutters up the channel. Bad flaw.
I agree with all the comments- I want to save the video on Stream to share with colleagues but I don't want my class to see it (I will use a private channel in the future to record) There must be a way to delete a video /link in Teams without having to delete it in Stream. Please address asap if possible!

Here's the core issue:
Microsoft sold Teams as an out-of-the-box solution for online learning for school districts. It wasn't designed that way, however. It's designed as a collaborative tool that works best in a peer-based matrix style environment. Schools by definition are highly-structured with various roles requiring specific permissions and the ability to turn off and on functionality at a user and at a role-based level.
Google Classrooms, Blackboard, etc., have been designed from day 1 with hierarchy in mind. Almost every functionality issue I've seen on these forums are not an issue in the other learning environments.
I used to be systems architect and am now a teacher. I can't imagine how many programmers and low-level managers at Microsoft are pulling their hair out trying to retrofit hierarchies into Teams. You are being asked to build a 25-bedroom house while being forced to keep the original 3 bedroom structure. It's a nightmare. You have my sympathies.
The blame, I would say, rests with the senior Microsoft managers who sold a product not designed for a school environment as an out-of-the-box ready solution. Shame on you.
My only hope is that Microsoft has the capital and human resources to make good on their promises to school districts. Millions of school-age students are in jeopardy of losing even MORE instructional time this year because teachers can't do what they need to do in Teams because of the greed for market share on the part of senior Microsoft management.
Yes, I will add to this as well, we need to delete a test recording and can't believe a system would be developed without a delete option!
If two people record the same meeting, can the one I recorded and published by me be deleted without effecting the one my colleague recorded?
I couldn't agree more, I have been doing a lot of test recordings which I am not able to remove from the General meeting tab. Aft 20 days does it become fully deleted or does it reside somewhere else.I Don't see the benefit for anybody to see my test processes. Can this be fix so I can remove any thing which I don't need.

I will add my voice to the list of needing the ability to remove the link in the Meeting Chat for a video that I have already deleted in Streams. Having the link linger after the video has been removed from streams is very confusing and the ability to remove it is desperately needed.
Oh Microsoft. You really don't know how to make a user friendly program do you?
Sort this out!
I, too, am adding my voice to the need to have this option. It is not Microsoft's decision on whether or not a meeting should be able to be deleted, it should be up to the organization to set policy for retaining recorded meetings. I am also a teacher, and I should be able to have the option to delete any post, including the ones with meetings, or to archive it. Either way it needs to be removed from the General conversation stream. There are recorded meetings I have on Teams that have lessons that are no longer needed, and I just want to get rid of them. I, too, have a "practice" team, with several channels, but I'd like to get rid of practice videos in those channels as well. WE NEED THIS NOW!! Please!

Microsoft de la consola de administración de stream https://web.microsoftstream.com/ activa la opción de administrador, puede ver los videos de usuario y borrarlo.
Microsoft from the stream management console https://web.microsoftstream.com/ turn on the admin option, you can watch the user videos and delete it.
