Automatic recording meetings
If you know beforehand that a meeting should be recorded then it would be nice to have an option when scheduling the meeting to start recording automatically. This can help with not forgetting to start recording and save some time and effort not having to remember to do it manually.
Do not turn off automatic recording of Teams for Schools.
Schools, in this time of Pandemic, need to have all classes recorded automatically so that families can access from home.
Once this automatic recording feature is turned off, many classes will be lost. Many schools have no way to make these recordings as proposed by Microsoft. That is, manually. Well, there are many classes per day, per week and per month.
I request, if possible, to leave the Schools out, as an exception, in this process mentioned by you from App Teams.

As an education facility, delegate the "start recording" action to teachers is definitely not a good practice. Teachers will always forget to start the recording. They need to focus on students. They now have two audiences to manage, let's try to ease their life and avoid us frustrating answers to them with the new Service Desk classic' "I forgot to record the course, where can I retrieve it?" ... "Well you can't because I'm no Marty McFly..." .... Please help us :)

Several co-workers brought up potential legal constraints here. If nothing else having a reminder that a recording was desired when the meeting was scheduled would be a big help!

I second having a notification for not to forget to record. Auto-recording would be good as well.

Since Microsoft seems to be a bit unresponsive to this issue, I wrote a Keyboard Maestro macro that will do the trick of opening a Class Meeting and automatically start recording. I hope this can help fellow teachers to diminish their cognitive burden and concentrate on actual teaching. https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/uploads/short-url/ouQ2M2R1pPHi4SKrfhLrubG3aRK.kmmacros
The lack of automatic call recording is keeping us, and our customers on traditional PBX or hosted UCaaS systems.
Before every meeting, someone must always remember to click on the record button which is a hassle if we forgotten to do it. This is definitely a very good option / features to be included.
This seems like a no brainer. This is standard on other platforms.

If not org wide, can we have a policy to assign to a user/ group that allows automatic recording?
¡Necesitamos este, ayer!
We need this feature as well. (The University of Marine Technology, Copenhagen). Our teachers often forget to start the recording, which is annoying later on, when the recording is missing.
yep ad it would help with people making the choice on what to wear/ turn camera on etc
we need this option as well
This option is very important
This would have prevented me from forgetting to record a therapy session I had with a student this morning.

We have challenge as teachers miss out to start recording or start it in midway..
We need this functionality for compliance, legal and regulatory purposes.
I would strongly recommend to work on the solution of Auto recording on top priority
All the recording storage in a private channel rather in the organizer / Teachers profile. where Global admin can manage and restrict further sharing
Hi, as a Professor less (because I'm recording only a few times forgetting to switch it on :-( ), but as CIO in my School I extremely need it!
To help you to make a decision this feature is implemented in other similar solutions.

1) A reminder prompt to say ‘do you want to record this?’ And prompt user
2) To be able to set a policy, i.e. any 1-1 meeting between teacher and pupil.
3) To be able to say when scheduling ‘record this meeting’
As Teams is also the softphone for business users there are regulatory requirements to mandate recording of all calls / meetings in some industries (Banking and Finance). In addition it would be good to default recording on by User / Team or Meeting with the user able to switch this off (assuming recording is not in a mandatory sector) both as a user setting and as an administrator.
