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.
Thank you for your feedback! The team is currently working on this request. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

This new feature completely goes against our consent procedures and we must have an option to turn it off in policy.
Features, especially ones that have legal ramifications, should never be implemented without an on/off switch in the policy!
We see that the option to enable Recording automatically at the start of the meeting is now available under Meeting Options.
Is there way to control the setting i.e., either Gray it out or remove it to for compliance purpose.
Great concept. Bad idea when you have 750 people invited to a meeting and multiple people people join and leave first, creating multiple recordings. I hope we get some control around this!
Totally. :) Good idea. And with a disclaimer prior to starting the recording but sounds very good :)
Justin Burns commented
Obviously, this would be something controllable by admin rather than enforced in organizations that do not want the functionality that is missing today.

Bart Read very good idea! GDPR is respected in both cases manual recordered or automatic recordered.
Tracey Hill commented
Agree with many that the GDPR rules around privacy should be respected. We have a policy that says you must not set to automatically record for that reason. Surely a scheduled recording means would be better for all than a sweeping action like this.
Bart Read commented
Not available for me, and I really need it. Super-annoying that you have to remember to record, e.g., regular updates, training, etc. Way easier if it just did so automatically so we don't have all these recordings with the beginning of sessions chopped off.
Related: it ought to be able to provide a recording for the whole meeting even if you forget to click record until halfway through. I.e., record in the background - if nobody clicks record at all during the meeting, then delete the background recording.
It looks like it might be live for some?
[MC263666]: Teams Meeting Auto Recording is in road map
Still wating for this very useful feature...
Gaurav Singh commented
Yes, thats very important to auto record the session on teams.
please do this asap
Subramanian V commented
Please do include automatic recording. I always miss the first 10 minutes until I remember to call start.

Ideally, we would like to set a policy to record all external calls (inbound and outbound) and video meetings. Calls at the very least. I would love to be able to drop my current softphone provider and migrate that service to Microsoft, but I can't until this is available. The Compliance Lords set the rules in the world of finance.
Furthermore, I don't need anything fancy like transcription or duplication, just a simple policy-based, cloud-stored recording. Again, audio only would do for now.
Jackie Scivicque commented
Maybe the recording can start after a set amount of time so that the fluff at the beginning of a meeting isn't recorded??
Really looking forward to this feature. I'd like to echo some of the further development requests to be able to direct where the meeting is recorded to.
Where is the Roadmap ID for this one? We need to be able to control such behavior for obvious compliance reasons!
Nick Brady commented
Please offer the ability to allow the organizer to choose where the recording is stored (SharePoint, Stream, etc.) instead of storing it in the personal OneDrive for Business location of the first attendee to join the meeting. The current experience on is not useful for organizers.
David Letourneau commented
Please ensure this is off by default and can be enabled by the admins that wish to enable it.

we would also be strongly suggested in using this for our support department
